John King Wilson's book The Art of Cutting and Fitting published by The Tailor & Cutter, 1950, is something of a classic.

enjoyed this book. the last chapter is great fun. i must have met each one of those customers, some many times over.
student cutters should take it as a preview as to what there is their future.
if you can laugh about it you have it won.
