Hello beaubrummel,

Your first lines above describe to me an employee that needs additional training and experience.

To me an ideal apprentice would be someone who has the desire to do be the best job possible. Someone that I can instruct and properly train with a long term commitment to build up their experience, work skills and speed until they have the abilities and decision making process to complete tasks assigned with little supervision, then they may take over my business and I may retire!

Kind regard

I see. Thank you very much, it's all been very helpful. Shame for me you're not in NYC!

So essentially, you want to have good working knowledge of being able to make up some garments, whilst not having a list of bad habits, and learn quick. That would be an ideal apprentice?

There should be more involvement here in the states in the profession. In England, there's Savile Row and they take apprentices from college so it's not like they're 8 years old, the Savile Row Academy and a bunch of other schools, in Italy, there's the Brioni school, Kiton I believe has their own school as well. Where's the love in America?


The real love was here in Houston.

Hello Beaubrummel,

I am not in NYC, but maybe I will pass through later on this year!

Kind regards

The real love was here in Houston, traditional, scientific cutting, German tailoring with a complete knowledge base from 1936 to 1980.

Hello Der Zuschneider,

I can believe you in this fact. Genius and scientific cutting knowledge make a fine combination.

I look forwards to reading your posts and replies here in the forum and greatly appreciate you taking time to enlighten us all.


Respectfully,
