Hi everyone. This doesn't relate at all to tailoring techniques, but I thought people might find it interesting. It basically outlines how large 'Fast Fashion' companies (e.g. such as Zara, H&M etc) are creating massive waste and environmental impact through the culture of cheap, low quality, disposable clothing, as well as mercilessly exploiting the working classes in many countries.
Unfortunately, no mention of bespoke clothing as an alternative. Probably not surprising, as bespoke tailors are about as common as unicorns in most Western countries nowadays... What passes for 'bespoke' is generally MTM (ie. personalised fast/junk fashion).
Another interesting point: it was good to see the presenter start the video with some comments about modern suits being designed for 'slenderman' or '****** addicts'. It's true that the modern suit is generally ridiculously undersized. Clothing companies have managed to convince people that super-tight clothing is fashionable. Co-incidentally this allows the manufacturers to produce a greater number of items for a given length of cloth (ie. profit optimisation). I say: "Reject modernity! Let us create comfortable clothing once again!"
