But first, this is a side jaunt to a series of posts I wrote about sample costs (pt.1, pt.2 & pt.3). By way of explaining the higher costs of cutting samples as compared to the design room or home workshop, I’ve made what I’m calling “fusing maps” for lack of a better description. It is the only way I can show you how much extra stuff we cut. I know fusible usage looks like more than you’re used to so you wonder if you really need it. All I can say is that manufacturers are keen to shave costs wherever possible so if it were possible to eliminate it, they’d do it.
Without further ado, below are shown fusible placements on the typical sportcoat or suit coat. It also goes for coats too. For this to make sense, make note of the at top right. Shell or the self piece is grey. The fusible is pink. Other than that, this is self explanatory.
