I'd like to recommend this new book. It's by young tailor (a woman!), who has taken over the tailorshop of Alfred Konsals in Wien. It contains an excellent historic analysis of the suit and some lovely photos plus technical explanations.

Yes, it's quite a handsome book. The expression "the Savile Row of the East" was one I borrowed from there. The author is Viennese.
