Originally published in 1928 in three volumes. These deal with every aspect of the tailoring and clothing trade. Extremely well illustrated with photographs and many helpful diagrams and detailed instructions for the design and construction of various garments. The contents of Volume 1 include: Tailoring as a Vocation - Gentlemen's Garment Cutting - Trouser Cutting - Vest Cutting - Measures and Measuring - Coat Cutting - Over Garments - Cutting for Corpulent Figures - Trying On - Manipulation - Anatomy for Tailors - Measuring for Ladies Garments - Skirt Cutting - Coat Cutting - Breeches Cutting - Colour and Clothes - Juvenile Garments - Alterations - Collar Cutting - Catering for American Clients - West End Models - Draft of West End Morning Coat - Scales of Measurements etc. Many of the earliest books on fashion and clothing, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
