Although it is a cliche, some things they just aren’t made the way they used to be. Heavy, vintage tailor’s shears are coveted, treasured, and passed along; true rarities because they have not been made for over 35 years. With them, a tailor is about to cut large tranches of fabric, using the weight of the shears to steady the hand.
In 2014, a Styleforum member found a factory that still had the old molds necessary to craft these precision instruments, and set out to have them made for members of Styleforum and the tailoring community. Sensing that these precisions instruments would be desired by professional tailors and tailoring students long after the factory molds were once again cold, Styleforummarket ordered about a dozen pairs for sale to the tailoring community. After months, the factory was finally able to reproduce the shears to our exacting specifications.
You now have an rare opportunity to get a pair of these heavy shears, which Styleforum’s professional tailors say are far superior to anything available today. Properly cared for, these shears are an investment that should last you more than a lifetime.
