        It’s not about dressing like people from the sad old days, it’s about skills.

        Tailoring covers everything from suits and jackets to skirts and dresses. It’s about getting well fitted clothing with quality fabric of your choice.

          The evolution of fashion killed tailoring and thats a pretty good thing. To hell with having to pay some jerkoff sky high prices to get a single outfit you could wear. Most people who care about fashion would rather just spend the money on individual pieces they can style themselves, tailors are for the ultra-rich who don’t dress themselves or for a special occasion.

          look at the way this man dresses himself and tell me this shit is "skills".
          >tight ass button
          >red hecking pants
          >POPPED hecking collar
          literally only an italian could think of putting this shit on.

    This is the result of the government pushing every kid to go to college and the media pushing them to "follow their dreams". They end up feeling that their parent’s profession is too provincial compared to higher education, so it ends with them. This phenomenon has killed many many small businesses in America. Not surprising to see it affects the tailoring industry.

      Yeah no. Even people who don’t go to college make jack shit in money, it’s just going to college makes it worse. I lived in low income housing for a long time, and most of the people there were just minimum wage workers because that’s all minimum wage allows you to afford.

    >$5k+ for a bespoke suit
    >also you have to go Italy
    >also you need 3+ fittings
    >also virtually no one wears suits on a daily basis anymore
    I mean what did they expect? I wonder if Saville Row has the same problem. I’d expect Saville Row tailors to at least have more customers due to the demographics of London, but maybe I’m wrong.

      I just go to my local neighborhood tailor.
      My mom used to get formal sikh dresses made by a tailor who operated out if their own home. But then again, a dress is less time consuming to make than a suit I guess

      Pathetic troll

      i genuinely dislike fitted suits. the silhouette is weird and theyre uncomfortable. loose clothing, skirts, dresses, baggy pants etc are all 100x more comfortable so why dont we wear them instead

      You have clearly never worn a well fitting suit. Fitted does not mean tight/uncomfortable

        i have, and your rom is limited in a suit. if i cant be really flex in the clothing i consider it restrictive. dress shoes as well really suck, especially for my messed up feet

    I’ve got no comments on pay or working conditions of tailors, but one of the first sewing projects I ever did was me resizing an old t-shirt (that I still wear). People don’t wear suits and dress shirts on the daily anymore so what that means is tailors need to adjust their craft and advertisement to let younger people know that they can bring in their jeans, t-shirts, hoodies, leggings and what ever else to get their clothes properly fitted or adjusted to the fit they desire. This way they build up clientele and then when they do need bespoke suits and dresses they’ll feel comfortable enough to come to them for the work and paying $5000 for a tailored suit. Change with the times.

    >yet don’t want to admit low pay and long hours with zero rewards killed it.
    It’s negrified millennials and zoomers with no taste, who just want to consooom cheap disposable clothes to ape the latest famous moron/negress, that killed it.

      why would I pay over 5000$ for something I don’t like wearing instead of getting an off the shelf suit if needed and have it adjusted? costs a fraction but because a suit is not every day, why bother.

      if a suit is every day for you, I can see the need/want for it, but most people it will never be an everyday thing.

      as for my clothing taste, I get 3+XL (I can fit in large if its large fitted for tall, but I usually need 2xl so 1/3 my stomach isn’t expose when I raise my hands even slightly above my head) I GREATLY prefer baggy as heck clothing where I can walk outside on a hot day and not instantly sweat my ass off, but also go out on a cold day and my nipples aren’t instantly diamonds.

      live in wisconsin, and my year round attire is a tee-shirt and basketball material like shorts, till it goes to about negative 30, then I need to put on some longer pants of the same material.

    the tailored suit is very much a 20th century fashion style, it will die in the 21st with the rise of more casual styles. you can tell the suit is about to die since even bankers and politicians are slowly abandoning the suit. and they are the most conservative groups fashionwise.

    a market for custom will probably remain but for more casual styles. they’ll have to adapt.

      I think the suit died because people got really REALLY fat, not a casual thing. Some people look hecking amazing in a suit, but casually are kind of shluby looking, these people would probably prefer to always be in a suit if they could get away with it, but with 2/3+ of all americans being fat and the rest of the modernized world doing their best to catch up or make sure we can’t catch them (mexico is fairly modernized) why would you ever want to wear a suit where it accentuates how hecking fat you are?

    >Boomers did it again.
    For once, OP wasn’t a gay. Boomers decided that techbros wearing JCPenny grade casual garbage is the new work wear and they can’t accept blame for anything.

    tailoring is alive and well, arguably thriving and in a new renaissance in asia, dying in the west. thankfully we have moronoids to stop it from becoming a lost art.

    The tailoring industry needs to wake up to reality.
    The reality that suits are not a status symbol anymore.
    Once upon a time everyone needed a suit, and if someone already had a suit it was a worthwhile expense to buy a better suit.
    But now people rarely even wear suits to a job interveiw and even weddings are beginning to ditch the suit… and what suit they may wear… they do not care for its quality, only it’s price… the lowest price.

    The future for suits is in its growing popularity among fashion oriented individuals, but they people do not have very much money. Thrift store are more popular than ever and the most popular made-to-measure places are the ones that provide the best value for money. Luxury and blank checks are out.

    The tailoring industry should restructure itself accordingly… that is to say, it should cease to exist as an "industry" because it simply no longer can be sustained as such.
    It must become the same as handmade woodworking, blacksmithing, or bookbinding. Crafts that were once huge industries, that are now just merely hobbies for most people. You can hire a blacksmith to make you a nice iron gate, you can hire a bookbinder to bind you a book… but the business has changed. You are not dealing with a prestigious business with hundreds of years of history, you are just dealing a regular guy who makes some money out of his hobby and with prices appropriate.

    That is what tailoring must become, it must become amateur.

      If you want a good look at what this would actually look like, simply look at historic tailors.

      Barring theatre costumes… these tailors sell to people with niche fashion tastes. They are individuals, amateurs. The market is small, but they fill that niche.

      In the future this will be the only place you can acquire a suit.

      Bookbinders still make money from academia at least, since thesis binding is still a requirement for most research projects in the final stage
