"A lesser explored aspect of bespoke tailoring is that of garment finishing. Once a customer has had his first fitting the garment is sent back to his coat maker. From this point onwards the garment is classed as a ‘finisher’."

A garment is classed as a finisher after the FINAL fitting which could be the second, third or fourth, or does that certain house only have one fitting, even on difficult figures.

Maybe different SR establishments have different customs and terminology?

The number of fittings might depend on the cutter. If the pattern is cut to fit the figure. the jacket may need only one fitting.
