Making a suit for a mannequin is one thing, making a suit for a man is a whole different one. Most tailors don’t realise this important distinction and yet after years of experience they still make suits for mannequins. I don’t and for this reason I spend much time to get to know the person I dress and understand his emotional and psychological factors: personal and business lifestyle, habits, mannerism (the way he sits, moves, talks and holds himself). Only once I understand the person I translate all this information into measurements, style details and choice of materials to create a totally personal garment.
As simple as it may sound this is something that cannot be thought and no matter how long the experience a tailor either has it or doesn’t. Nowadays just a very few tailors get this right.
