The top edge of the pants is the wrong shape for your body. If you push that crease up to the waistband and make a chalk line then you can undo the waistband chalk a new curve that dips down to the chalk line (a gentle curve) and resew the waistband following that line. Another way is to measure how much is in the crease. Then directly above the crease measure down from the waistband and mark crease amount. Undo the waistband, draw the gentle curve (chalk) and resew. You...
If you ask those who started at the age of 12 they will say it is better to have started at the age of 6 than 12. Maybe children should learn to walk at the age of 15 instead of younger than 2. But, at the very young age children's bodies can fall and land at those very odd angles that they do that would cause a 15 year old physical damage. Those younger bodies are very stretchy and flexible, which is why the old tailors say the hands are no good for teaching when older....
I wouldn't call it a style. The lapel is pulled up causing it to roll sooner than it should. If he cut the collar ends wider the lapels can be lifted and lower to determine exactly the best fit, and pin each exactly in place.It is very sloppy for extra room. The cloth below the midsection is falling senselessly. Above isn't fitted right either. The extra "room" should be distributed around the whole coat, not just the back. Back in the early sixties the backs fell straight...
The grey suit looks terrible. Perhaps you slipped it on wrong.The lapel rolls past the button. Meaning the collar is to curved.The lapel button hole could be much better, since that one is for show.The back isn't sitting into the hollow of the small of the back, and yet the fronts hang parallel. This has to be a faulty pattern.The pants are baggy from the seat and quite aways down the back legs, too.The first fitting should have sorted out these problems when the body of...
How many boys asked to become tailors? These boys were not forced into the trade. No doubt some boys were. Then there were the boys who were not fast enough who were told to find a different trade a few years down the road. Any boy knows there are advantages to making your own clothes. You get to make what you want to wear. So it is actually empowering. Another advantage is they can earn more money than other boys their age. Dishwasher is low pay.
It might look better with a different background behind it. I really don't like the waist style. It could be more flamboyant instead of hugging his body. But, the way he is standing distorts the fit.
Nothing
Gosh! If I could be your old age I'd be somethun like 20 to 30 years younger. What a lucky boy you are at your old age.
You are right. Credit due where credit is due.Factories and robots, robots are kinda new.Small children have plenty of time when not in school. With them an Apprenticeships are stretched. But, handling thimble, needle and thread, and cloth is best taught at a very young age. Some places was before the age of six. As soon as the child can sew dead straight they are taken right into making trousers, then a coat where they learn how a coat should fit. After that they are...
Why do tailors keep raising prices each year? Supply and demand, and they can. Find unknown tailors that are just as good and their prices will probably be reasonable. Bench made is more time consuming with more opportunity to make better garments, so naturally will cost more than that which is shoved through the production line.
