    Thanks. Jacket's Chan and pants are thrifted (then tapered by a dry cleaner and cuffed by me using Ambrosi's XxX method). What's really special about them is the fabric.
    Some poly blend. :) Or possibly pure polyester, or nylon. There's no tag or marking inside.

    Link not working? Try this: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5PRQ3Y3

    The survey is to provide Arrigo with stats, so Sleevehead can show him "X amount of people are willing to pay X amount for a suit/jacket".

    Not sure what I'm looking at besides your sofa.
    I see a blind hem done with a serger/overlock machine.
    Is that standard in the UK? Cutting corners?

    The tailors I have worked with hand sewed the cuffs in the manner described.
    Not that it matters, obviously. But many made a point of not using sewing machines.

    I think the standard way is sewing on the sideseams to attach the cuff to the legs
