Welcome to PERKINS TAILORING INSTRUMENTS

I am Philip Perkins, a direct custom clothier, in San Antonio, TX, who offers apparel crafted by merchant made-to-measure companies. When I started the business, order forms had illustrations and descriptive words to define physical characteristics of a client. The appropriate information was to be circled on an order form. Therefore, communicating with manufacturers involved using a tape measure and a visual assessment of customers; which presented the possibility of miscommunication. For me, too much time and money was spent on local garment alterations. I was very fortunate to work with a true master tailor, Raymond Herrera, for local alterations. I asked Raymond to help develop hand tools to more accurately measure clients for custom apparel. Initally, we came up with 4 Devices; Shoulder, Incline, Rise and Sleeve. After working with these instruments, the results were dramatically fewer alterations. This prompted my wife to suggest I advertise this measuring system to help fellow custom clothiers. So, I ran an ad in Made To Measure Magazine, showing a photo of each Device and a brief description of the advantages of working with each Device, beneath the following heading of the ad: "WANT A BETTER FIT?".
