The Finished Garment

Following the second fitting the garment is usually finished fully in advance of the third and final fitting.

All finishing is completed by hand including edge stitching, padding of lapels, individual buttonholes and application of buttons. All linings are felled by hand, with linen being used to reinforce pockets and gorge, sleeves are stitched in place by hand and shoulder pads and canvases are hand-cut and shaped.

The final pressing is completed by a separate finisher whose job is only to press.

The Beginning and not the end…
