Written by a professional designer of men's fashions, this book features over 840 computer flat sketches of many shirts' components, as well as fashion illustrations from guest artists. The flat sketches demonstrate how pieces are sewn, details of stitching, and fabric layers. The artists' sketches indicate how design elements are incorporated into garments aimed at specific customer bases, from high-end luxury to urban department store.
