With this dynamic DVD, master tailor David Page Coffin welcomes viewers into his professional workshop for a cuff-to-collar tour no shirtmaker will want to miss. With a reassuring and warm style, he reveals the special skills required for making fine custom shirts that look great and last long.

Encouraging his audience to sew along stitch by stitch, Coffin discusses and demonstrates the trade secrets behind crafting rolled hems and flat-felled seams, plus precisely sewn plackets, cuffs, and collars. The lessons learned can be applied to a host of other projects beyond shirts, from vests and jackets to pants.
