As I'm doing MTM, everything is based off my patterns. I have fit garments that I use to help identify changes that need to be made and fit preferences of the customers, so I suppose its a similar process in part. Depending on a number of factors, I will make a test suit/ jacket for the customer to dial things in prior to making their final garment. This is probably overkill in some cases, but its important to me to deliver a garment that the customer is happy with.FWIW, I thought Kent Wang had a great remote fitting scheme. It wasn't perfect but the trial suit plus sending in pictures for expert advise on fit changes worked really well. I haven't done anything MTM from them recently so I'm not sure if anything has changed. I suspect you're looking for a more interactive experience if you're considering doing it via Skype.
How can I get my hands on one of those books?I feel like I dont post here for a week or more, and then I post 10 times in a day. I guess thats sort of the nature of a side gig. In any event, these showed up yesterday and I was reminded of how it all started for me and ended up here. Almost 10 years ago, I started moonlighting at a custom clothing shop. I loved a lot of things about it, but maybe my favorite thing was the day the new cloth books would arrive. It was literally like Christmas morning for me. I would go through each book and look for what was new, what was amazing, what was so terrible it was cool.
I still love new book day, and the two in focus are among my favorites. I know there isnt a ton of love on the forum for Loro Piana, but I'm a fan. The Winter Tasmania in particular is one of my favorite suiting fabrics around. Anyway, happy new book day (technically yesterday, but whatever).
