    Certainly it would be very useful if some of this vocabulary could make its way on to Wikipedia.

    Just a thought.

    Wow I've never even heard of these terms before. I'm new to this forum, and just reading these terms that you posted blows my mind. Never knew you can put a name to everything! lol

    Thanks

    Well the names follow methods of construction, so in this case vocabulary follows function, which, I suppose is the fascinating thing about techncial vocabularies. So much of the detail, the million odd ways you can construct a garment, lives on in them.

    This seemed like the most appropriate place to pose this question,

    Can we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE start a thread that explains all the acronymns?

    All I really know is

    BoO is Band of Outsiders

    and MTM is Made to Measure (I think. . .)

    Anybody of the higher power around here know if this could be possible? It would be great!

    What is OCBD? For example, I see BBBF OCBD... I assume that's Brooks Brothers Black Fleece, but I don't know what the OCBD refers to (Oxford Cotton Button Down?)
