Hi all...
Thought I would share this video. All I hear is: "all made by hand"
What a guy!

Why is it more desirable to use?

I like that little detail with the Jet on the pinstriped suit.  Taking that single, light colored strip, and running it perfectly perpendicular to that beautifully matched striping on the flap.  Not to mention I really like he way that cloth looked.  I'd look amazingly sharp in that suit.  Beautiful.  In a few decades I'll be that good.  Heh.

So he keeps his sewing machine for decoration purposes? :Talking Ear Off:

 

Funnily, there are a lot of well made videos about "bespoke", "custom", "Maß" and so on to be found.

And the more professional and stylish (lighting, sound/ music) they are, the more likely it is not one of the above mentioned.

 

Like this one. The title "Sartoriale" would make you believe it is actually done in-house... But it's more likely done elsewhere and in a MTM manner (Poland or Italy).

Not saying it's a bad product, it just isn't full bespoke, and definitely not made by one of the company's CEO on an old treadle machine.

But that video is obviously a well produced commercial and have there ever been commercials that tried to sell their product with pure realism?

 

It's not just that they're trying to trick people into buying whatever they are promoting with a glamourised, perfect displayed story that charms the hell out of people, but it is also the people that want to be charmed and buy into that fantasy world. Some might actually believe the fantasy that it's just this old man patiently making suits, while others know (a little bit more of) the reality, but are still somewhat triggered by the charm of the ad.

If everyone else is doing it, why not tailors... (whatever beer brand isn't going to increase sales either if their commercial is about a bar full of completely wasted people drinking their somewhat stale beer, so they show a group of happy friends flirting with some chick and drinking perfectly tapped beers in a perfectly lit bar, yet the first scenario will probably be found more often in reality ;))

 

anyways.. I like the pressing buck that screws onto the table...

The thing is that advertising/marketing, which is now about 99% pure lies, is more often than not drummed up to sell something by representing it as what it isn't. A lot of people know this, but the manipulation of psychology still gets them (us, even). Tricking people for gain is not a skill worth admiring.

 

A difference I'd point out is that when e.g. Heineken runs an ad to sell its piss-in-a-bottle beer, nearly everyone in NL knows they sell shoddy beer, but its heavy advertising presence, and high-vis presence in the supermarket, makes it too easy to buy when you run in there to buy party beer and are faced with a lot of choice.

 

This is not the case with craft beers and bespoke tailoring is more like a craft beer in that respect. If the craft beer makers made adverts claiming they are the nation's favourite beer ('ons bier' and all that nationalistic rubbish) people would be dumbfounded. If Heineken claimed to be a real ale by showing its craft brewers in an advert, with some nostalgic music, they'd be liars. When a small factory MTM tailoring operation pretends to be 'bespoke' they probably deserve condemnation for being deceptive.

Some countries it is a given that certain seams are machines. On a coat the back, sides, breast darts, most of the pockets, if not all, the facings, linings and some of the sleeves. The rest is hand done. Then there are those who consider, nowadays, if you are not using fancy machines with jigs and whatever that is hand sewing because you are hand guiding the cloth through. Those that do pockets would be really nice. You could say some words have attachments: to them it is obvious and they assume you know them, regional attachments. With the pre-knowlege you are supposed to know, then where is the lie?

Once a company is big enough it can pretty much do whatever it wants. No newspaper or TV station (probably owned by the same person?) is going to loose that advert money those companies pour out. That's why people still eat fast food, drink super sweet sodas or use drugs/ medications that can cause serious problems or even death.

 

Here is a video from SARTORIANI, Savile Row . "Surprisingly" they went bust a few years back. But they were responsible for the Savile Row tailors loosing the battle for the term "bespoke".

 

 

The vest the "master tailor" is wearing looks very suspicious though... :Black Eye:

 

 

anyways.. I like the pressing buck that screws onto the table...

 

Me too, but they are hard to come by. I've seen some really old (and abused) ones on German Ebay years ago. But with a bit of DIY skills one should be able to make one.

Although a trained bespoke tailor, that man in the Sartoriale video didn't deliver a top notch execution.

Also noticeable is the backward pitch of the sleeves.

 

Here's another one:

Wie ich diese heuchlerischen Werbefilme hasse! Wenigstens gibt er die Fertigungs-Dauer mit 100 Stunden richtig an, es arbeiten ja auch 2 Personen gleichzeitig, da kommt das hin. Früher hat man ein Anzug mit 60 Stunden hingeschissen, alles Frei-hand, heute wäre dieser Schrott unverkäuflich.

 

Wieso hat er denn die Ärmel zu weit nach hinten eingesetzt?

One of the cheaper sort of production:

 

 

And a more decent one:

 

 

Damn, he is fast!

You probably mean "how can I tell he did"?

 

Just look at the way the sleeves hang and all the folds on the biceps...

How about this for a cottage industry? It gives a whole new meaning to shop floor worker!

There is five videos in total. wait for the first one to finish, and you will find the next one in the selection at the end.

 

My heart went out to this fella! maybe not to our standards or expectations, but how many can see the job through from start to finish.

 

Try and watch all five videos. I guarantee you will all learn something.
