I will be recomending this book for students wanting a fairly good technical guide to pattern cutting for Menswear. Despite a few issues that I will mention this book is student friendly and as with the Women's version, it is fairly informative. One negative point is the lack of final process in 'trueing' the pattern lines after pattern alteration. After swinging out a dart the pattern shape is shown with the minor angles that appear. Students commonly forget to re-shape the pattern and do need instruction alongside the illustration to remind them. On page 159 the crutch line (CL) abbreviation has mistakenly been used for the chest line (CH). The technical drawings are a useful resource that will help students look at proportion and clarity when drawing their own.
