Hello,

I have found a site called Gentleman's gazette.

And I have learned just enough from those videos that a good bespoke  or bespoke type suit 

has probably as much ( if not most) of the stitching done by hand,  pick stitching ect...

It is not hard to find books on sewing machine techniques.

But what about hand stitching and locking hand stitching ect...

Would the members know of a good classic book on handstitching?

Thanks,

Ron

You might be interested in this.  Fresh off the desk from 1949.

 

It's from a wonderful old set of trade instruction manuals for apprentices.

 

Only thing is they are in German.  Happens that I love translating them, but I only just completed the section on stitches a few days ago.

 

These pages offer some really unique and useful tips for trainee tailors.

 

First is the link to the translation, the second link is to the original article.
