Excerpt from H. Matheson's Scientific and Practical Guide for the Tailor's Cutting Department: Being a Complete Treatise on Measuring, Drafting, and Making-Up, in All Styles From Childhood to Old Age
It is now over thirty years since I cut and made the first coat, and twenty-two years since I entered the Tailoring business on my own account. The skill of tradesmen was not so severely tested then as it is now. However that excellence of workmanship has become indispensable to success, it is more imperative than ever that he who would impart instruction in any art or science should be possessed of a thorough and practical knowledge of what he teaches.
From my long experience and favourable circumstances in business, I trust that I shall be found to possess the qualifications so much requisite to communicate a clear and practical knowledge to others. This system of cutting is not an inven tion of the departed, or any one living except myself, and is not got up for a speen lation, but from a desire to do good to my fellow-man. It has been tested for the last eight years extensively under my own immediate observation and in my own hands, with the greatest success ever known in fitting customers, without trying on or refitting, as is usually done. The system is simple and easily learned a practical Cutter can learn it in less time than he can cut a coat, and put it in Operation with the greatest ease after he drafts the first coat.
For accuracy, elegance of design, and rapidity in executing a draft, it has no rival in the profession, as it will draft a coat in five minutes and use less cloth, or, at all events, as small a quantity as any pattern in existence. Patterns are a thing of the past with this system, and will only be used hereafter by inferior cutters and old fogies.
