A list of garments

“I think this feels rather compleat now… Maybe I can add some things later?” The tailor looked at his new document – the first additional one made under the ‘Type Of Garments’ category. It was basically a list of garments he could make, bespoke for customers, and had done.

  • Coat
  • Jacket / blazer (suit)
  • Denim jacket
  • White tie jacket
  • Black tie coat
  • Waistcoat (suit)
  • Trousers (suit)
  • Black/white tie trousers
  • Jeans
  • Chinos
  • Shorts
  • Track pants
  • Shirt
  • Bowling shirt
  • T-Shirt
  • Turtleneck
  • Tank-top
  • Singlet
  • Sweatshirt
  • Fleece
  • Hoodie
  • Briefs
  • Boxers
  • Bathing trunks
  • Skirt
  • Dress
  • Corset
  • Top
  • Sports gear
  • Hunting gear
  • Wedding outfit
  • Uniform
  • Masquerade, club attire, costumes
  • Socks
  • Scarves
  • Hat, hoodie, beanie

It was a long list – and even a rather not impassioned one too, by the look of it. It seemed just a tad boring, and even maybe a bit uninspiring. “I think I probably have some group and un-grouping to do with the items in this list, and maybe post them together in styles and whole outfits instead.”

He new that many looked upon garments, and craft, with more emotions than practical sense. To get someone’s attention – anyone at all, really – you had to be more fantastical. Starting with your average over-the-top items, and then work yourself down to the things that probably would be the most worn, and thereby your most valuable garments. (Valued achieved, according to days used that is.)

“So let’s do this!” He started writing again. At the top he wrote ‘Bespoke 3-piece Suit’.

He knew this would be a long night, but he just kept on, until he felt he got it right.

What do you think?
