What Length Fabric Do I Need ?
The below guide will depend on your height and weight and on some occasion your tailor may need more fabric to work with if his pattern cuttings isnt as skilled as others. Plus if the fabric ordered is a check or pin stripe material, you need an extra half a meter to get all the patterns meeting up.
Typical sized gentleman of 6 foot with a 36" waist will need approx
3.5 meters. for a 2 piece suit.
4.5 meters for a 3 piece suit.
1.5 meters for a pair of trousers.
2.0 meters for a jacket.
1.0 meter for a waistcoat with rear in satin lining.
Please check with your tailor what meterage he requires before ordering.
