I want to learn how to make men's clothes

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Gentlemen,

I have the burning desire to learn how make fine men clothing. I was wondering if you have some suggestions of how do I start? I have search the web day and night and I am not sure there's a do it yourself program. My academic background is in health science, but I am very artistic. Men clothing and style have always been on top of my interest "list", during the past 3 years, learning more about men clothing and discovering top quality garment has peak my interest even more. Art/Fashion school, I m not interested in making runway fashion stuff. I think being an apprentice maybe a start, but I don't know where to start. Please give me your honest input!

Savile Row. Richard Anderson -- of Richard Anderson Ltd at No. 13 -- got his first job at H. Huntsman when his dad brought him in for an interview. Prior to that he'd had no real interest in the field. If you have real interest, think of how far ahead you'll be. But I suppose the question is ... will you develop the talent as Richard did? Only time will tell.

If you are not able to move to London ... try one of the American tailors. That said, you may have to wait for better economic times.

Best of luck.

Savile Row would be the ultimate experience, moving to London would require a great deal of sacrifice tho, but I would consider if the opportunity present itself.

Probably David Page Coffin's book. It contains some good techniques, but is a bit hard to follow as a step-by-step guide to making a pair of trousers. If you want a complete guide you should buy Roberto Cabrera's "Classic Tailoring Techniques" or Stanley Hostek's "Men's Custom Tailored Pants".
