I am so confused. So if a suit is canvassed, it will have 3 layers. If a suit is fused, it has three layers, but the wool feels thicker because there's that fleecey stuff fused to it? "You thought you knew, but you have no idea." That is me right now
I understand the fail-proof pinching method, but what I don't understand is what makes a suit look nicer when its canvassed? The phrase "It fits better on the chest" doesn't mean a lot to me alone. What makes it fit better on the chest? Sweet Jesus.
When the wool doesn't have the fusible facing, it drapes better because it is thinner, more natural, and lighter. Just ask yourself, what kind of shirt looks dressier -- 140s Sea Island Cotton, or a stiff Oxford cloth? What kind of dress looks more expensive on a woman? A silk dress, or a stiff cotton? Additionally, because the canvas is all stitched all the way down the seams of the jacket, the suit holds its shape better. Moreover, over time the glue holding the fusing to the wool becomes even stiffer, and (rumor has it) starts to bubble.
