Final read through all your posts and thought it best to upload some pics.
These are of a client who purchased my Handcrafted suits, made solely by me in house.
I did everything from cutting the pattern and sewing in every stitch including the buttonholes.
Sadly the finisher I trained move to Holland to live with her boyfriend so its just me now.
In the past few weeks two new apprentices have joined the ranks to train in Coat making and Trouser making respectfully.
They are not as of yet ready to work on clients garments, still at the sample stage.
Would like to decide this pics to Taxgenuis and Archetypal_yuppie with the greatest respect, this is your backyard and I have yet
to prove my worth and be worthy of your respect. I condone all your calls for a picture on a clients back, I hope you will be kind in your
judgement as suits are made from cloth not cut from stone.
This a relatively light to medium weight cloth at 10oz spun from luxury fine wool and cashmere from Harrisons of Edinburgh, the price was 5k including taxes and cloth.
Made as seen in the videos, please note I also hand sewed the shoulder seam and sleeve seam as well as the lining, the collar and lapels.
All that one would expect on Savile row.
This was the final fit, the client was due back after six weeks for final inspection. He has since started running everyday and would like to wait
until he has dispelled all excess body weight before have the garment taken in at no extra cost.
Thank you for taking the time to view my work and videos and look forward to contributing to this forum.
