Due to the popularity of this post last time, I decided to upload it a second time: a few pages from a German tailoring guide from 1922.Note the delicate curves in the patterns of both the trousers and the jacket, and how much stretching and shrinking is required in order to make this suit. Both serious tailoring expecience and a cloth than can pack a punch are necessary.

“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”
