    I was wondering what suggestions people had on good books that described the tailoring and cobblering process and parts that make up most articles of men's clothing and shoes. Information about the different types of lasts, lapels, collars, etc.....

    Any thoughts?

    I had read a long time ago Gentleman's Wardrobe and thought they had some of the best info. -- esp. historical info. on certain articles of clothing like outwear. You don't give it much of a high rating though. I wonder why.
