    A clothing history question: When did fusing start, and where? Whose idea was it?

    Has the technique gotten better over the decades?

    Sometime in the early 1950s, if I remember correctly. Yes it's gotten better over the decades, though I imagine that along with better fusing has come worse stitching/pressing in factories that fuse their suits. Of course, fabrics have gotten better all around.
