Posts by a tailor

yes journeyman, thats what its for. On a stout person, it would be a good fit. But on a slim person, it would need to be tapered. When you have the shirt on looking in a mirror you can see how the seam goes straight down. Looking straight at the front you can see the curveof the seam, but its just not enough for a slimmer person. Thats why we still have tailors.
Why? Well most shirts are cut straight up and down. some have a little shaping, but not much. So here is the problem the tailor has when tapering a shirt to fit you. See that line down the side of the figure. that is the center line down the side of the body It is also the position of the side seam of the shirt. And its only the seam the tailor has to use.
