I'm curious to know how the extra hand comes into play.

Why, to better feel the fabric with of course!

StyleForvm member ohm has provided jefferyd with a labeled Poole to dissect...and the news is not as artisan-friendly as the first Poole, which had no customer label.

I put one on and have this feeling that people must think I'm wearing wings ... like some angel from a 1930s movie vision of heaven.[/quote]

They're called " Leg o' Mutton" or Gigot sleeves, to be precise.

Yeah, I saw.

FWIW, I visited the Poole workrooms in the basement of 11 SR in 2007 and I saw the pad-stitching machine, but also a lot of tailors doing it by hand. I asked Angus Cundy why they did both, and he said that coatmakers did one or the other for various garments, depending on certain factors (which I did not really understand).

On heavy tweeds, I don't think it makes much of a difference either way. Lighter weight suitings is another matter.

Should I get out the shears and destroy all my coats?

I feel like that would actually make a lot of sense because a bespoke handmade suit isn't something you need to stretch or move based on the width of your shoulders because it's your size, whereas an off the rack, machine sewn suit is something that people of a roughly similar size but with slight differences here and there would have to wear, so the stretch is necessary to accommodate many people's varying, albeit similar, bodies. No?
