Cut­ter

The cut­ter is the ar­chi­tect of the suit. They mea­sure the client and takes into ac­count the de­tails of their physique. Once they get the mea­sure­ments, they cre­ate the suit pat­tern based on the client’s unique shape. Then the ma­te­rial is or­dered and the cut­ter takes the pat­tern pieces and cuts them out of the cloth be­fore pass­ing them on to the tai­lor.

Tai­lor

The tai­lor is the builder of the gar­ment. Once they re­ceive the cut cloth, they sew the suit to­gether and make any nec­es­sary ad­just­ments.
