Question about tailor school

Hello!

I was wondering if anyone knew where I can learn how to make a suit, like a tailor school that specializes in suit making. Maybe even in the United States, California?

I have tried googling for a tailor school, though the result I got most of the time were all fashion schools. Mainly the academy of arts in SF.

I am not very knowledgeable about the path of becoming a tailor, and if anyone can enlighten me, please do.

Thank you.

Talk to tailors.

There really isn't a school for tailoring as there would only be about two people enrolled. Just find a tailor in your area and spend as much time in their shop as possible (it worked for me).

Hello,

in germany are chambers of crafts (handicrafts). They have charts with tailors (which are allowed to teach).

Good luck

I think Kiton and Brioni has schools.

Savile Row should have school too.

In the states, maybe try PM Despos in chicago.
