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.
