We discover the craft of the future: the tailor, true pride of made in Italy
We can say that the real tailors, we mean those who sew on the men’s dresses all hand-made and customer-tailored as they did once, are extinguishing. The Italian dress made in craftsmanship is synonymous with elegance all over the world.
The basics of “Made in Italy” come from the tailor-made fashion. The tradition of Italian craftsmanship has very deep roots. The tailor when he cuts a handmade hand made a work of art, such as an architect or engineer who builds buildings or realizes decorative projects. The difference is that the tailor builds his jacket, trousers and other garments.
In the past, the secrets of the craft were a tradition, a wisdom to convey, and this usually took place through apprenticeship, with the “shop boy “. Parents sent their children to teach them a profession. It was beginning to push the needles and make the slow points. To put the needles should be good because the thread did not have to be either too long or too short; too long it was interspersed, and too short was over soon. The apprentice boy sees only the slow points or soft points for the first few years, so he learned to use thimble and used to manual sewing. Only after years could really start sewing. Today, it is not easy to find good tailors willing to educate a boy who wants to learn the art of custom tailored tailoring.
The tailor-made dress, that made by the tailor, is far different from the one used for serial production. The tailoring dress is made almost exclusively by hand, the sewing machine is only used for some sewing.
To create a customized dress is an art that takes a lot of time: for a man’s overall dress, calculating from the time of the cartoon design, the cut and the end of the seam, it takes about 65/70 working hours to pack a jacket it takes about 40 hours and another 20 hours for the trousers, the other hours are for previewing the cartoon design. If you also need to make the waist the hours increase to 80 because for the waistcoat it takes at least 12 hours. To achieve a coat, however, it takes at least 50 from the cut to the finished finish. But in spite of all this, the hand-made male head remains irreplaceable and unique, instead of losing beauty becomes more elegant every year and sculpts on the wearer’s body. In addition, a customized dress does not ever go away, just because it captures a story that begins with the time it chooses the fabric to pack it.
Today, handicraft tailoring offers interesting prospects, it is the profession of the future, even though this is not the case and is likely to disappear like all craft trades. It should be kept in mind that in our country a large slice of labor market is open to tailor’s craftsmanship, and preparation can not only be related to personal improvisation, but the tailor must learn both theoretical and practical techniques with the training that it must first take place in a tailoring school and then in the field. Only by learning technical and manual training, this craft can offer the opportunity to undertake a truly creative job that is needed in these times and which the market really needs.
