Jason :
I had intended to get your book as well and missed the release date... (thanks for reminding me, zokitzar!) now I see two versions of it? or two covers? at least two prices? are there differences?
Cheers
David

One is the US edition, the other is the UK ed. Pretty much the same. I think the US edition has a little more explanation on some of the diagrams (nothing important) and the US edition replaces the word PANTS with trousers (I was not asked about this and they changed it anyway).

The US edition is not released for another 5 days, but CJ if you are still in Belgie, then try bol.com or otherwise Amazon.co.uk

België is almost over now. Moving on monday morning and I prefer not to rely on express delivery for that... Anyways, if I order the book to Berlin directly, it's one book less to move. Curious about it. Very curious (even if it won't be too useful for me anymore since I'm trying to move away from theatrical tailoring to bespoke... oh well... another historical tailoring book in my shelf won't kill me...)

Gonna order it next week, I guess, once I'm settled and my name is on the mailbox!

Yeah this has been a pain in my arse.

Next book, one edition, sorry Americans but you'll have to use the trouser :spiteful:

Seriously I get a lot of emails asking me "which one?" My answer typically is "it's the one that does not say "out of print"" :poke:

But seriously, IF I do another book, one publisher, one edition. If not, then they better well co-ordinate efforts a hell of a lot better. The US version was to be released 3 days prior to the UK version, well works out the US version will not hit stores until March 15th a full month after their "official" release was supposed to be.

I got the book yesterday.

I think it's great. An important new general technical resource for an oft-overlooked period. A period that was actually the direct root of what we are still making and wearing today!

I think this has a place in any literate tailor's library, regardless of expertise or style preference.

Oh it seems in my fervant editing I missed (or rather when editing two methods to one for space, they kind of melded together)some things, thanks Qirrel.

So if you have the book and reading throught it I would appreciate you pointing out any "WTF's" or "that makes no senses" so I may correct future prints.
