Tailor is derivative of the Latin word “tailler” which means to cut. Bespoke or custom describes garments made to measure for a specific client. As an artform, tailoring dates back to the early Middle Ages or 1100s typically in major European towns. Tailored clothing then consisted of capes, cloaks, coats, doublets and breeches. an art form that dates back to the 1100s. Historically, tailoring has been taught in apprenticeship settings. The required skills were passed on from master to without the need of a written manual. Traditionally and currently, tailoring remains a male-dominated trade however many women have equally become competent in the occupation and as we’ve moved into a modern world, tailors now exist exclusively for women. Below we’ve listed a few aspects of what goes into custom made suits.
