We are devoted to the making of ideal clothes of customer

It is Tanaka saying, "anyway, favorite contacting people".

Working hour of the day is about nine hours. On 1st, time suffers even from the making of core very much just to make paper pattern of top and bottom to hang in half day just to finish one.

The skill of Meister

As for the men's wear, core of cloth and various material is sewed in combination.

Core of the front section of men's wear is the pivot of suit, and Tanaka thinks that we decide beautiful silhouette that we put on waist from shoulder from line, the side of chest.

By the making of core of the front section, we are particular about matching vertical glance of core with cloth. We match vertical glance of hair core (kejin) with the front section and take shoulder and chest, dart of West. Match lower lining core with vertical glance of hair core from this bus core (pitch a camp) (core using hair of tail of horse) and West and hang zigzag machine along cloth grain finely.

In addition, process to do long and short stitch making patterns of eyes slanting downward for curve to sew, and to be limited finishes sewing collar and core one glance finely by hand and finishes by polite technique only by made-to-order suit.

We keep beautiful silhouette without losing shape even if we wear suit which we finished using elasticized difference of lasting vertical eyes of cloth, looking askance at, diagonal eye for many years.
