The long-awaited (at least by me ) review of the long-awaited revision of Classic Tailoring Techniques for Menswear, regarded as "the definitive English-language textbook on traditional tailoring techniques (at least of those currently being published)." Jeffery Diduch, a forum member, wrote it. His summary:
I have often said that learning tailoring from a book is somewhat akin to learning to play piano from a book, but for those who have no access to a teacher this is as good a place to start as any, and it is certainly a very good accompaniment to any formal course of study.
After looking at the preview on Amazon a couple of weeks ago, I PM-ed another member that as an owner of the older Cabrera menswear and womens wear books I saw no reason to rush out and buy this version, although I definitely wouldn't mind having it someday.
Going forward in this forum, it might help to refer to the older menswear edition as "Old Cabrera", "First Edition Cabrera", or "Original Cabrera" and this version as "New Cabrera", "Revised Cabrera", "Second Edition Cabrera", or "Cabrera-Antoine."
