Raiders of the Modern Craft

Never before have good interest in handicrafts been so great. Whether it is the Savile Row-finished suits or Japan-woven selvedge denim – we love products made on a small scale by the old methods. The only question is why?

Often produced handicrafts as a cultural and historical projects. Manufacturers brag about having used the same methods of production for 250 years where the details to be sewn by hand just because they made so at all times. I have never been much of a fan of the word tradition. To me it sounds green moss carpeted floors and smoky chesterfield sofas. I’m starting to think this whole Conservative men’s club, the passion that dominates many style blogs and forums feels awesome tiring.

Nevertheless, I will readily admit that I go running in the black and white images of buttonholes or jacket shoulders and sewn by hand. I love the fact that the Biella weaving Carlo Barbera like wine stores its raw wool in the basement to give the wool right qualities before it is spun into yarn or shoemaker Edward Green, John Lobb cut off their shoes by hand to ensure that only the best parts of the dermis is used. But for me it reflects rather devotion and care product than the preservation of traditions.

For good design, whether it concerns a tailored jacket or technical sport jacket, is about to go a step further. It is about questioning the widespread attitude towards the manufacture of clothing as something trite and instead get every little stitch feel thought out.

Perhaps the clearest example of this was when I last Thursday stopped outside Norton & Sons storefront on Savile Row in London. The window consisted of only a mannequin with a double-breasted suit jacket on and a pair of leather boots. What struck me was single and timelessness that stood in marked contrast to many of the other Savile Row skräddarnas more classic signposted windows with stuffed birds, rolls of fabric and tailors. The feeling was modern, but far from trendy. It was not a struggle between old and new, without a clear desire for perfection. Somewhere I also realized the meaning of really good craft.
