Whether it's on a man or a woman, I LOVE a well tailored suit.
Just a few days ago, I came across this fascinating website, Tailor Made London. The company was born out of a desire to bring elite tailoring to a mass market. Their secret is 3D body scanning. In just 10 seconds, the laser body scanner takes 1000s of precise measurements which allows them to then create a garment that fits perfectly. Wow, what a dream!
On their site, they have the most inspirational tailoring pictures. Take a look.
D-shaped Bar tacks.The lovely stitching on a Dupont Pocket.
Hand stitched detail on the facings.
Side adjusters on a pair of slacks.
A tacked buttonhole.
The precisely hand stitched sleeve lining.
You can check out more of these beautifully detailed pictures HERE.
The company does have a blog. THIS is a very interesting article on jacket construction.
Hope you've enjoyed this little bit of tailoring inspiration. I'm ready to pack up, move to London and work for this company! They probably wouldn't have me, but that's okay, one can dream :)
