How to make a Savile Row Suit (Part 1) – with Anderson & Sheppard | FASHION AS DESIGN

Published on Oct 3, 2017 776,014 views

Follow the making of a bespoke three-piece suit in the style of Savile Row at the helm of one of the best British tailors, Anderson & Sheppard. – Behind a drawn curtain, a master cutter takes an initial series of 27 measurements: 20 for the jacket, 7 for the trousers. From these measurements, the cutter fashions a pattern in heavy brown paper. At the cutter’s table, the cloth is cut in using heavy shears, and the many pieces of fabric are rolled for each garment into tiny packages, which await the tailors.

FASHION AS DESIGN is a new course by MoMA that explores a selection of garments from around the world—ranging from Kente cloth to jeans to 3D-printed dresses.

    michael ratcliffe Год назад (изменено) What a Beautiful Shop. I am so grateful these fine People choose to continue to operate their Business with such respect. It’s time to slow down take a breath and contemplate how much we have devolved thereby removing so many of life’s pleasures. The Process of Purchasing a Suit is an opportunity to create a relationship,equate character,examine how we express ourselves from an aesthetic perspective. What a joy to take time and study the refinement of our shape. It should be such an enriching moment in life. The deeper you delve into various incremental aspects of this experience the more one realizes how many things we do at all levels to close rather than open doors to thought. Please continue to honor us with such excellence and respect.
