Made By Hand Blog Reviews Classic Tailoring Techniques for Menswear

There is a new edition for this menswear tailoring textbook called Classic Tailoring Techniques for Menswear by Roberto Cabrera published. While there are a variety of tailoring books out there for women, there are not that many modern books available for menswear. I was reading blogs in my feed, this one struck me as a very thoughtful and thorough review. This textbook was highly recommended but not easily found by me in its earlier edition.

Here is a link to Jeffrey Diduch's blog Made by Hand- The Great Sartorial Debate and his review:

Book Review: VINTAGE COUTURE TAILORING by Stephanie of Star Cross Sewing Blog

I came across another tailoring book review by Stephanie of Star Cross Sewing Blog.  I am certainly enjoying following her study and application of tailoring techniques and samples.

Anyway, the Title is Vintage Couture Tailoring by Thomas von Nordheim and you can find Stephanie's review Here,

You can get a preview/sneak peak of the book published in 2012 on Amazon here: page to find the preview

Often when I come across book reviews in my blog roll I will post links to them here for my own reference and for my reader's convenience.  

Book Review -- The Singer Sewing Series: Tailoring by Stephanie at Star Cross Sewing Blog

Stephanie at Star Cross Sewing Blog has written a nice review of the The Singer Sewing Series: Tailoring: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Beautiful Customized Garment

Star Cross Review of Tailoring

I have this book as well but have not opened it in awhile as it has been a long time since I have attempted any serious tailoring.  I seem to live in knits these days.

At any rate, it is a good review, you get a glimpse of the pictures and content of the book and she describes their approach which is pretty interesting.
