5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for Men's wear 22 July 2016
By Sewingbeauty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon this book at the library at my fashion design school and instantly found the missing link in my book reference. I had looked in every Bookstore in San Francisco for purchase and realized hay I got amazon so I ordered. What I love about this book is it has so much reference info and pics about menswear. It gives variations of styles and ideas as well as tell you how to create them. It shows all angles of the garment making process and it builds off of that process to achieve new styles. You can find many women and children books on garment making but slim to none for men, especially like this one. You should but this book. It shows collars neckline packets varying pant accents to create new looks etc. And there are pics for each look with sloped info expressed in detail. I can't wait to get started.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 10 Jan. 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love this book. Detailed and informative. Pretty thorough glossary. I would note that the book is very much what it says that it is. I am a beginner, and this works for beginners. But you should own a tailoring form and have access to necessary tools and stitching machines. This book does not go into the construction of garments. It covers basic pattern development for a number of garments only. For actual construction of garments you will need a teacher, or a lot of patience, and another reference book on tailoring as construction is an entirely different matter. One thing that I really like about this book is that it is very current. The test patterns are basic but contemporary. That's rare in the world of menswear patterns which are hard to find and, when you do dig one up, it seems to always be from the late 80's or earlier and horrible. This book provides a basic pattern for cargo pants, flat and pleat-front pants, a parka, a hoodie, a casual shirt, a blazer, a double breasted blazer, and jeans. Oddly there is a pattern for a bib shirt as well, but hey, maybe someone wants a bib shirt. Very good book.Make the muslin!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book. I just wish they would tell you ... 16 Jan. 2016
By Tys801 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good book. I just wish they would tell you how to arrive at some of the measurements given, rather than just giving the reader a measurement to draft with no explanation of where that number came from. It would make it much easier for adapting the patterns/slopers to other sizes.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will love it. Published in 2013 in London 26 May 2015
By Jane Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You will love it. Published in 2013 in London, this is an excellent up-to-date book for anyone who wants to sew seriously for men. It takes you through the entire pattern-drafting process and contains many patterns to draft in both knits and wovens. It also covers many alteration options for a great fit. Note that the body size charts of Chinese, U.S. and European measurements on pages 32 and 33 are in centimeters not inches but are easily converted by looking at both sides of your tape measure or using a conversion chart on the internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Useful, not for beginners. 20 Mar. 2014
By Hervás - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really amazing book, full of useful patterns and more importantly instructions to create your own. It is not the easiest book to follow if you have never done patterns before, but with patience and some common sense there is no reason why you couldn't follow it if you are new to pattern making.
