Over the course of 10 years I have had shirts made by several shirt makers, mostly MTM.
Against my desire to build a lasting relationship I have not yet found a single tailor I could be loyal to for the following reasons
- Lack of honesty
- Lack of individualisation
- Lack of education
- Remote production
- Language barrier
I recently read a topic on Styleforum about a Swede attending a week long workshop at a bespoke shoemaker to learn and discuss handmaking shoes while on the job.
I find this approach very appealing and would have interest in something similiar for the shirts I look to have made.
It's not a necessity but I would definitely love to learn more about details like alterations for sloping shoulders, single piece vs. split yoke, shape of the armhole, seperately set in sleeves, sleeve pitch, interlining and fusing of collars and cuffs, back darts vs. rounded side seams etc.
It does not matter if you are a business or an experienced homesewer, if you think you could educate me on some or all the above points and/or make shirts with details like that, I would appreciate if you would contact me.
Thanks and with best regards,
