Since its first publication, Classic Tailoring Techniques for Menswear has been the authoritative resource for custom hand tailoring production. This new edition focuses on updating these timeless construction techniques through extensive use of all new photography and digital illustrations to enhance the clarity of each process. The enduring art of tailoring and the nature of bespoke tailoring processes means that the techniques presented in the first edition remain as relevant for today's designers as ever.

The new edition is updated with information on measuring, alternative approached in use today and 748 all new photographs and illustrations. It also includes a brief overview of contemporary tailoring and the identifying key components of luxury tailoring from Britain, Italy and the Unites States. This introduction also familiarizes the reader with ways in which traditional production methods have been used in the development of luxury ready-to-wear men's tailoring.

The text is ideal for students with basic design, patternmaking and sewing skills of at least an intermediate level for courses including Tailoring Techniques, Menswear Design, Couture Sewing, Intermediate or Advanced Construction Techniques, Costume Construction and Fashion Design Studios.

Instructor's Guide available.


It's all there: what you need, and what exactly you need to do to achieve each stage of a perfectly classic tailored jacket, waistcoat or pair of trousers. Brilliantly presented and clearly explained. I believe this book is the authority in classic men's tailoring. It really is the go-to book for many home sewers or instructors who want to give the most accurate methods for hand tailoring. -- Casey Stannard, Oregon State University, USA [Classic Tailoring Techniques] is one of a number of leading texts for men's tailoring. -- Dean Brough, Queensland University of Technology, Australia The [new] author clearly has a great depth of understanding about the learning process and how organically it must occur. -- Amy Bond, Intercontinental University, USA I am a traditional purist tailor teaching more modern students, and I agree with [the plan] to try to infuse custom techniques into a variety of designs and market levels. The fact is that most students are more interested in infusing RTW processes into bespoke production, and I want to give them good answers and guidance hence my wholehearted support of the addition of fusible and machine techniques. -- Carla Summers, Utah Valley University, USA I absolutely believe that Cabrera's book is the ultimate in the fine details of men's tailoring... I like the proposed revision. I absolutely believe focusing on the fine techniques and making them easier to understand rather than simplifying the whole process is a much better approach... I believe the proposed increase in photos that clarify the process will fill in the gaps. Not everything can be clearly understood by words alone and the photos help a lot. -- Heather Milam, University of Alabama, USA Heather Milam, University of Alabama, USA Clearly laid out and the inclusion of additional illustrations makes this text book easy to follow for the students. It allows the reader to experiment with different techniques in the book to achieve a classical tailored jacket. Collin Lawton, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

    Perfect boek als je wilt weten hoe heren colberts en pantalons gemaakt moeten worden. Ook pasvormfouten worden duidelijk aangegeven met bijbehorende oplossingen. Dat doen ze door middel van zwart wit plaatjes met rode accenten op de aanpassingen.
    Zo geven ze zelfs aan hoe je je panden moet dresseren.
    Jammer dat het boek zo'n €30 goedkoper op de site stond toen ik het binnen kreeg van Bol.
