Excelent sewist! The one with the sleeve vent was a little too much for me; I was mentally trying to help her, say. But they are great videos. I do have to turn the sound off...

Sorry Tom (and others), I have yet to learn how to use my phone in split screen so can't post link.

Just go to Youtube and search, "Tailor Lee Marsh", and they all pop up.

Hendrick - I  actually have an older Android that's newish to me -Galaxy 7. I've somehow stumbled into the split screen several times, but have no idea how.

Thankyou for telling me you didn't know it could be done - makes me feel better!  ::)

I don't know if this is the right thread since it is only shirtmaking, but the youtube algorithm brought me to the following video. It shows the construction of a Turnbull&Asser shirt in some detail (ignore the fact that I think the finished shirt doesn't look that good ;))

I'll need to save this for viewing tonight.

But agree with the comment on the "finished shirt."  Maybe their irons were all broken at the same time? Cause even though the entire shirt needs a press - those cuffs look like they've never been touched by an iron. How very weird.

I don't fancy the cuffs too much either... My guess is that someone else made that collar? Best part however is something else alltogether. At one point in the video the lay with the spectacles' voice reminded me of Eric Idle doing Brian's mum in Monty Python's "Life of Brian" and, oh well, it just would'nt go away anymore

I will add these to my playlist. Thanks.

Have you seen those by atelier saison?
this is a serial about sewing a jacket from cut to finish. You even can get the pattern
they are not into hand sewing  - But I like their precise way of sewing.

Hendrick - good catch on the collar - I hadn't noticed it. And I also think I see a bit of a poor press on the front placket......

This is reminding me of my youth. Quickly grabbing the shirt from the ironing board : collar, cuffs, and mid front of shirt pressed, slipping my jacket on as I run out the door, and reminding myself that I can't remove my jacket all day long because my shirt wasn't actually ironed......yep that pressing job is now looking familiar... :-\

T&A Shirt:
That is not "bespoke". There was never a fitting - it is MTM. The bust lacks width (and length; the guy is always pulling it down). The stand of the collar is too high for his neck , the cuffs..... sigh..... maybe James Bond had other proportions?  The ironing: It comes out of the parcel so it will look that way.
But did you notice the sales man? What a bad fitting jacket (the union jack lining did not make it better)  the tie?

Thanks posaune, thats exactly what I thought.

Although very cringy to watch, I'm afraid that is the bespoke process with Turnbull & Asser.



I would also think, that the cuff as a whole looks rather massive - which seems to be exaggerated by a very loose and sloppy looking sleeve.

There is also a rather devastating critique of their process on this blog:
