The main focus on our final course about men's tailoring was the theory and the manufacturing side of the traditional english suit. From buying the materials and fabrics over learning the various ways of sectional drawing different types of suits. We've been able to design our own suits by hand first before realisation.
I got the chance to tailor quite a few suits for my clients and develop my skills beyond these processes. Everything started off quite slow in the implementation process, but as we trained longer hours we finally came to the point where it was possible to finish a suit in less than 24 hours. My finally suit (find below) is 100% Tweed with an elegant Viscose lining. Two pockets on the outside plus a breast pocket and three on the inside lining (twi big ones and one smaller one for the coins). Even tho we learned a lot in 1:4 sectional drawing, the 1:1 size was even more important as we never took any templates from any other suit we made and started from scratch. Our final oral exams did cover all the theory topics all round the manufacturing process and development.
However, in times of fast-fashion and paying less money for even worst quality need to be stopped in order to keeping this extraordinary hand-craftsmanship alive.
