Made By Hand – the Great Sartorial Debate

I don’t think I’ve ever devoted a blog post to simply saying, ‘Go here! Read this!’ But, seriously. Go here. Read this.

Jeffery Diduch is a specialist in tailored clothing. His blog, which I’ve followed for a year or so now, takes men’s jackets and pulls them apart to analyse the methods of construction by tailors from Savile Row to more mainstream designers. I don’t understand half of it, but I am always so impressed by the knowledge, intelligence and creative sensitivity. The man’s a genius, as far as I’m concerned, and there’s a modesty to his clear expertise that I just adore. (Those who can, speak quietly.)

If you love to see pad stitching, go visit Jeffery! You won’t regret it.

    Goodness me, it makes my padstitching look like a dog’s breakfast! So fascinating to see such a beautiful garment’s innards.

    Thank you a million times! It went straight to my bloglist, and now I’m looking forward to losing myself in tailoring for hours =)
    I’ve just completed my first ever attempt at pad-stitching, so this is extra inspiring for the moment. Makes me want to do everything so much neater the next time! And also so interesting that it’s tailoring menswear he shows, I haven’t seen that anywhere before.

    I am looking for a men’s custom tailor in the NYC area that “get’s it.” I am looking to have someone make a copy of my three piece Tom Ford suit. Any ideas? Please advise
