Pap may well be a very apt acronym in some cases.

Hi Everyone!

 

This is Robbie and after reading many pages of this site have finally decided to join!  I am in the garment business as a product development manager mainly doing ladies and childrenswear.  I have always been very interested in men'swear (so i can finally wear stuff i make) and the art of tailoring is undoubtedly the most fascinating and now i know, demanding.    

 

Thanks in advance to everyone who contributes to these forums!

 

-Robbie

Hello,

 

I am Polly from Scotland and I've decided to become a member after reading the site for some time as a guest.

 

My background in Product Design but have become increasingly focused on textile and garment design. I've been teaching myself tailoring and patternmaking techniques from books ond online sources for a few years now.

 

I look forward to joining in the discussion with you all.

 

Polly

I thought of that, but wondered why she didn't use "RTW", which means Ready To Wear, which is much more common.  I just did a quick Google Search and they appear to be synonymous.

Hi again,sorry for delay.
In Poland it's common to say 'coś z wieszaka'(literally sth off the rack),this is why I'm used to that form. I didn't expect it to be so confusing though.

Marie - don't worry about it. 35 years ago at university here in the states, studying retail merchandising, tailoring and touring the NYC offices of companies like Hartz, Schaffner and Marx, among others - the common terminology of the time was, "Off the Rack" - OTR.

When I began to use the internet a few years ago to "up my skills" it took me a bit to realize RTW and OTR are the same thing. No biggie.

Hello cutters and tailors,

 

To introduce myself, I first bought a sewing machine to upholster some chairs, got the bug and started making clothes. I also now have five sewing machines...

 

I've been reading this forum for some time now, and I can say that it is quite unique in it's seriousness of approach. My kind of forum ! Many thanks to all the regular contributors, you have certainly taught me a lot.

It was the abbreviation that confused me. I Googled "OTR" and didn't see an explanation. "Off the Rack" is not a term I've heard used.

I forgot my password once, made me realise how much I got out of this forum. 3 days until it popped back into my head.

-There might be a lot of tweed merchants out there making a bodger, but I'm sure not one of them. I'd rather be kicking my heels than making a pork on the mangle. No crushed beetles to be found here!

Greetings to everyone,

 

I'm Jussi Häkkinen, head designer and head buyer for Ab Suomen Herrainpukimo Oy, located in Turku, Finland, founded in 11.11.11. Our shop is a classic gentlemen's haberdashery. We mainly specialize in made to measure -items, although we hope to open our bespoke line in the future as well.

 

Having a company in a country that doesn't have a strong sartorial tradition has its perks and hindrances, although it certainly forces us to really focus on our customers.

 

Personally, I do quite a bit sewing - both alterations and prototypes - and drafting and wish to learn my trade even better via the discussions in these forums.
