The cut of a man’s jacket is considered a reliable measure of the man, yet few appreciate the skill that a really good cut entails. The science and art of the cut first involves the translation of body size and shape to a flat pattern, which is then used to cut the fabric from which the garment is made. Creating the pattern involves skilful modification and adjustment for ease, fit and styling. ‘Fashioning’ refers to this process, which has its own history of design and skill development. Although modern mass production methods have reduced consumer expectations for a quality cut, it is still possible to recognise a well cut garment.
