What's in the book

The Book

Since its first publication, Classic Tailoring Techniques for Menswear has been the authoritative resource for custom hand tailoring production. This new edition focuses on updating these timeless construction techniques through extensive use of all new photography and digital illustrations to enhance the clarity of each process. The enduring art of tailoring and the nature of bespoke tailoring processes means that the techniques presented in the first edition remain as relevant for today's designers as ever.

The new edition is updated with information on measuring, alternative approached in use today and 748 all new photographs and illustrations. It also includes a brief overview of contemporary tailoring and the identifying key components of luxury tailoring from Britain, Italy and the Unites States. This introduction also familiarizes the reader with ways in which traditional production methods have been used in the development of luxury ready-to-wear men’s tailoring.

The text is ideal for students with basic design, patternmaking and sewing skills of at least an intermediate level for courses including Tailoring Techniques, Menswear Design, Couture Sewing, Intermediate or Advanced Construction Techniques, Costume Construction and Fashion Design Studios.

Instructor's Guide available.
