Patternmaking for Menswear: Classic to Contemporary Reviews
It's very sad that menswear is somehow put aside in the editorial market and is often treated as a second-class type of patternmaking. Most of the books available on the subject are unaccurate or old fashioned. However, those who like men's clothing know pretty well how tricky it can be, since it is hugily based on detailing, finishing and fit (specific for men's body). It's nearly impossible to apply flat patternmaking techniques from women's to men's and get the best results. As it's eaqually uneffective to cope men's patterns through a womenswear's drafting process.
Very well set out text book. The text is well written and illustrations are concise. Only comment would be that unless you knew what to look for in the fitting photos, you would be hard pushed to observe the errors on the garments. They're too subtle and need a bit more exaduration. I've been patternmaking for many years and even without drafting any of these blocks or slopers, I can tell that they will be more than adequate for a great staring point. Nice to see something of such quality addressing menswear pattern making. It's like we don't exist sometimes within the fashion industry!
I'm a beginner when it comes to all things sewing, but this book is clear and concise. I also generally have a hard time with learning via textbooks but I found this book to be comprehensive and user friendly.
one of the best menswear design books i owned! helped me with a lot if design knowledge while i was in school!
This is a very thorough book. It explains how to take measurements, seam allowances, and drafting different patterns based on classic and slim fit. It shows you how to draft every single pattern to a garment, and how to mark the patterns. The last page of each draft shows all of the pieces needed to construct whatever your making. The drafting part confused me a little, especially when it came to draft the shoulder slope. Overall this book is amazing.
This book is quite a neat book regarding men's wear patternmaking. I bought this book for men's wear design for myself. The most valuable aspects of the book are the principles. I have had a difficult time developing a pattern applying the women's wear principles, this book resolved that problem..
I like the way the instructions are set out on this book. It has helped me in my menswear construction/patternmaking classes a lot more than the other book that was required for my class.
