Hello All,

I joined this board a couple of months ago, not as a tailor but as a tailor's biographer.
I received a friendly welcome (despite this deficiency!) and some good answers to my questions.
Since then I have learned quite a bit and now hope the results of my research will be of interest to anyone interested in the history of Men's tailoring in the late 18th century. Please feel free to visit at http://chasbaz.posterous.com/.
Professional comments will be more than welcome!

Kind regards,

Charles

Fascinating material! Well done! Presumably, you are also related to the man responsible for the London infra-structure?

Thanks! Sir Joseph Bazalgette, to whom you are referring, was Louis's grandson and my gggfr.

Let me know what more you would like to see and I would love to research it.
Also any comments from the real tailor's viewpoint.
Although I must have a few drops of tailoring blood I'm sure I have made some spectacular gaffes!

You have some amazing ancestors then - tailoring, the law and engineering and all at the top of their professions. I am not a tailor or an expert on tailoring techniques. I am just a commentator on the finished products and their uses. However, I shall be glad to contribute what I can and, as for the rest, there is no shortage of technical expertise on here!
best,
NJS

NJS - your comments on my blogs are much appreciated.
New blogs are posted at least weekly, assuming I have enough energy and material!

Just an update to advise any interested parties that my book is now available in trade paperback. 

It contains a great amount of detail about tailoring in the Georgian period.

Link:

but it is also available from other distributors.
