Sewing books

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was looking on amazon and came across some books on how to make mens shirts, and one called classic tailoring techniques. These subjects are very interesting to me but I don't know much about them. I was wondering if anyone has looked through any of these books and if they are worth it at all. They are all pretty expensive and i would rather not waste my money on them if they aren' tvery good. let me know.

This book, "Tailoring Suits the Professional Way" by Clarence Poulin, listed as bibliography by David Coffin, is a very good basic knowledge book. Coffin's book itself I don't really like. Of the other two I have no knowledge. One thing I do know for sure is that there is no competent shirtmaking book in existence that I have been able to locate in 30 years of looking.
