Honestly, I'm not impressed. I could take any picture in my Rundschau magazines from the late 80's or early 90's showing the clothes presented at the master tailors conventions and you would hardly notice any difference.
My scanner doesn't work or else I could prove it...

I agree with SG, no scanner needed.

Not to toot my own horn, but I could show at the Trachtenschau and do as well if not better, and I'm not considered a tailor, little alone a Master Tailor :thumbsup:

How does one get an invite to show???? :search:

You have to be a member of your country's master tailors association, I think. I guess you can then easily get an invite since not many tailors go there anyway. Showing up is a costly thing, let alone making those wardrobes for elderly models.
A colleague of mine went to the Berlin convention and participated in the young tailors contest (he was 45 then smile.gif )

The CTDA has some conventions where they do some really nice creations. But you have to be a $ member $.

I was only joking happy.gif . But, I can only imagine the costs associated not only with memberships but to travel and attend such conventions. Astronomical I'm sure.

Interesting, but for some of suits it is only the fabric that is amazing.

This is an absolute catastrophe :shock: :LMAO: :Cry:

Posted Image

On the left corpulent Tweedledee wears a regular dress coat that opens up at the front about a mile (there should be about 10 cm open). The waistcoat sticks out a similar amount beneath the fronts of the coat. The turndown collar does him no favours either, especially when he has no dress studs on the shirt.

On the right, Tweedledum is wearing a dress coat with step lapels :blink: and the waistcoats sticks out below his coat fronts about an inch. The sleeves almost reach his knuckles. He appears to have put a napkin into his chest welt.

The re-introduction of a very fantasy-waistcoat might be admirable, but using the same fabric on the lapels is a bit over the top.

And here the maître d’ is showing this lady to her table.

For starters, sleeves would have looked better with a false forearm (the sleeve inseam is too far forward) facings, although cut on the straight have not been shaped with the iron to run parallel with lapel edge. Trousers too long, affecting hang.

From the look of it I'd say that's the least of his "problems"!

If those samples all come from "master" tailors I'm sure there must be some Uber-Masters out there who don't have the time to attend those conventions for a simple reason: They are too busy making real clothes!

Like I said before: I'm not impressed! Pretty much the same stuff they showed any year since the 80's. :Sleepy:

There are one or two diagonal creases going from the front right armhole and upwards to the shoulder seam. I can't see anything similar on his left side. Could this be from poorly done fusing?
