Off The Cuff Tailored Suits, Look For ?
This article will equip you through the numerous pictures that you can compare to your suit to see if it is a tailored suits or is a fully machine-made suit.
The picture on the left shows one of the coat sleeves turned inside out.
No tailor, and I mean no tailor in the world uses this method to make suits. it is 100% a factory way to do things.
Tailors ALWAYS finish these areas with delicate hand stitching and NEVER by machine.
The picture left shows one of the worst cuff finishing jobs I have seen for a long time.
Ask yourself this, would a tailor of any quality let this out of his workroom ? Of course he wouldn’t.
This poor chap thought he was dealing with a tailor but the reality was it was only a Manchester middleman, Established 40 years I might add. All the pictures of the blue suit is their handiwork. Beggars belief.
The picture of the light grey coat to the below right shows the imitation machine ‘hand’ stitching.
This stitching is bold, deep, pronounced and often not really on the edge as you can see. Real tailored suits are not finished this way.
If you also look at this collar and lapel you can see the lapel is not sharp at the tip, it’s round and badly executed.
The general size, shape and angle of this collar and lapel is totally wrong. This is an offering from a company who have set themselves up in York.
This is the coat as it sits on its hanger. You don’t have to be a genius to see this is poor work.
Look at the state of the sleeves, the chest, the fullness. This is bad work.
My father would turn in his grave. Make your own mind up with these pictures.
The dream boats selling this stuff are clever and will go to great lengths to part you from your cash.
Having nice premises, offering you whisky, have magazines lying around, all the trappings to make you feel comfortable, them convincing, and tactics designed to distract you from their lack of tailoring skills.
Anyone can read an old tailoring book, frequent various tailoring forums picking up the ‘lingo’ to sound credible. If you are in a tailors, you should quite rightly be expecting a tailor to make your suit.
Hopefully these pictures will help you get your money back, yes, get your money back. You have been mis-sold, end of.
