Excerpt from Proportionate System of Coat Cutting

The practise of the useful arts necessarily precedes their theory, for it alone can furnish reliable material whence principles may be deducted, and rules determined; and there can never be a time when it shall cease to be the test to which all rules and theories must be subjected.

This is pre-eminently true of cutting (one of the old useful arts), and it is, therefore, in vain to look for a book on the construction of clothing, which shall be altogether, or mainly, original; all such books, resting on the experience of the past, must recapitulate its practice, in greater or less degree, unless they be manuals of peculiar specialty, they must partake somewhat of the nature of a compilation borrowed from many sources.

I wish to acknowledge the ideas which I have borrowed; and if I fail to do so in any instance, the omission is not intentional. In some cases the views of others are so incorporated with and modified by my own, that it is out of the question to preserve the distinction between them.

In the body of the work I have given the most efficient system that I have yet met with for the purpose intended. I have also given what undoubtedly must be considered, the most accurate tables of sizes yet given in any work of the kind.

The course adopted in the following pages, in giving the method and its application to all garments, has been deliberately chosen for the convenience and advantage of the general reader, who is not supposed to be an adapt in the department treated of. To him the book is offered as a manual for guidance. I have tried to make everything clear by illustrations, where the eye often reads more at a glance than in many pages of print. And where scales and tables of proportionate measurements are required, I have not failed to give them.
