What is the line that can do me a favor? I want to know a lot.
hahaha spookietoo that sounds very true been immersing myself the past few days, the convex concave thing just intrigued me since he seemed to emphasize this. thankyou everyone who answered
Yes, that article had a bit of age on it. (Paul Newman has been gone for years!)

In 1990, the actors mentioned were wearing coats with considerable drape - just coming out of the 80's. Applying the concave/convex thinking to that time frame may have some merit - but mostly it just sounded like hooey - talking to make noise.

Some good basic statements made, but nothing truly original. There's much better information posted here to be studied rather than wasting time considering concave vs convex.

I really wouldn't concern myself with it.

Perfect !Thanks for sharing
That is an old article.  Think I've read it before. Think he is talking about making swelled chest.  Not many completely hand sew garment's, anymore. Most of those guys must be dead now, or close to it. A few still think it is not tailor made unless it is completely hand sewn (no machines). It really doesn't take much longer hand sewing. Garment's have a different feel.

Oh well. Some of it is fairy tale stuff. But there is at the same time some truth in it - like old men talking about the war.
I do not think that american tailors do a concave breast.  This will mean a flat chest and no curves at all in a coat.

If I think about working with all that marvellous fabric you work with, I envy you.
who did cut today a fabric with the print not working with the grainline for herself and it was not cheap!!
here is the article its a bit of pop piece but that part made me curious about how he works when he builds shape through pattern and construction and what he means by concave vs convex!?
Can you post a link to the article? I'd like to read it.
