When the new system comes in, somebody oughtta just copy the whole post and rehost the images. Probably for a number of threads. Just be sure you give credit the originator.

I might try a few but to be honest doing that for all the pictures is reminiscent of my Pentium II 15 years ago. Waiting for a picture or web page to load . . . it just takes too long. Time/benefit analysis or maybe I'm just too lazy and tired.

Thigh (Th)= From the crotch seam to the edge of the leg
A (Ankle) (cuff, leg opening)=
Hips = Measure the hips is flat across the base of the zipper
BoC: Bottom of Collar to end of jacket

Ty for clarifying rise. I never knew what it was until now. I thought it had to do with the crotch area but didnt know for certain.

Is a lower rise preferable versus a higher one? I've seen people with high rise's and it looks sort of odd.

Cheers

I'd say it depends on the kind of look you're looking to cultivate.

Quarters, as in "open quarters" and "closed quarters" are terms that I have never heard used outside the internet forum. They are not used within the trade or by tailors (except the few iTailors around). So I might suggest that if you went to a tailor and asked for open quarters he may not know what you are talking about.

I have been hearing tailors say this for 20 years, in London and New York.

So what do you claim the correct terminology is for what we call open and closed quarters?

Unlike something like, say, the gorge, which has a universally-accepted name, few tailors refer to that area as anyting other than the fronts, or the skirt. When we shape the fronts, we may cut them straight, or with more cutaway, or more rounded, etc. It's not impossible that Manton may have heard a tailor or two refer to them as quarters or something else, which is how the term would have crept into forum-speak, but as I said, I had never once heard the term used. My point being that it is far from universally-accepted language.

Have you been hearing them say 'quarters' for 20 years or have you been hearing tailors say that they haven't ever heard the term 'quarters' for 20 years?

You may or may not be right on this one, but In my defense, this is intended more as a guide to these boards than clothing in general. I've also never heard another term for it.

I vote in favor of "sticky-ing" this thread and hopefully one or more of the mods will be kind enough to occasionally revise/update the OP in response to reader feedback.

What about a ranking of the difficulty/price for different tailoring jobs, so that when people buy RTW suits they know what needs to be bang on and what can be altered later? For example, some of the most intensive jobs I know of:

- anything with shoulders
- correcting sleeve pitch
- altering sleeve lengths w/ surgeon's cuffs
- lengthening/shortening jacket

Much easier/cheaper jobs:

- adjusting pants waist or seat
- altering sleeve length without surgeon's cuffs
- reshaping the back of collar to sit flush with your neck

Just off the top of my head. Others care to develop this?
