"Hugo's girl talks about how bad suits have collar gaps (agreed).
But l see so many big named suits with collar gaps. Look!
Even Hugo gets caught out here. His big named tailor made a suit for him, but look, Hugo gets busted. Collar pulls off side and back of his neck. Ouch.
Is this the true reality these days? What happened to those great tailors that made suits for those guys in the films during the 30's and 40's....don't those skills exist anymore?

On the golden age of tailoring those who cutted and fitted were people who studied way longer as a Phd on cutting and also parts of anathomy to fit the body, also those cutters used to cut for men and women at once, as +80 years old Neapolitan masters.
On the last decades, cutters are mostly narcissistic idiots who lack of proper and real training ( in Spain the so called school of tailoring teaches on a few weeks what in Naples takes 10 years, so you can see the expect fails over and over)
On the golden age, this idiots as Tanga and the rest won´t scale on the best case from shirt presser, nothing more due to their lack of brain. Sad but true. Note suit presser is way more difficult, so they won´t ever qualify for it.
A normal tailoring house used to have at least 12 workers, hundreds on the best. The today so called masters won´t pass from best boys and coffee bringers on the golden age.
Sarto has expossed over and over pictures and examples of badspoke from the so called “best tailors in the world” or most pretentious scammers on the block and their bribeds bloggers as craptom or Parisian Skeletor.
