Help Buying Rundschau Book
« on: December 22, 2017, 01:34:56 PM »
Hi Everyone,
I'd like to buy the Rundschau book on jack patterns. Not sure if I have the correct book, so I'm asking for help on which book is the best.
My main goal is to be able to draft men's suits. Thanks in advance!

Choosing between:
https://www.muellersohn.com/metric-patternmaking-for

and this:
https://www.muellersohn.com/haka-schnittaufstellung-grundwissen

Your advice is greatly appreciated.

This title is actually about Jackets:

The first one you listed is just the English version I think.

I'm curious about your experience.

When you want to draw suits you have to take the HAKA-(short for menīs and boyīs apparel) book. It covers trousers(= Hosen), waistcoats(=Westen), lounge coats(=Sakkos) and shirts(=Hemden). Itīs there in english too: https://www.muellersohn.com/fundamentals-menswear

The Metric Patternmaking for Jackets and coats only covers a wide variety of outerwear, but no lounge coats.

Thank you both for your help.
I think I will pick up the HAKA one then. Much work needed to translate.

I'm new to drafting suits and I want to gain some more experience before taking a more rigorous course like Rory's or Savile Row.

If you're thinking of taking one of the above courses it might be a better course of action to play about with some of the English drafts as both Rory and Savile Row work in imperial measurements, you'll notice the similarities between them once you have taken the courses.  I don't have a problem with Rundschau except they use the metric system.

Thanks Tom.
I was thinking I'm going to do some practice with each of the system and find the similarities. Just trying to understand as much as I can before going there to maximize my time with the teacher.
So, just doing all the homework right now.
