Side bodys or fish cuts?
Here are two ways to cut the fore parts of a coat. The first the old school way with one or two fish cuts, the second with the more modern side body. With the side body it is possible to achieve much more shape through the waist. The fish cuts are sewn out at both ends and the side body seam is sewn through the sleeve and the bottom of the coat. Both ways can be made into my softer tailoring. ( please click on image to enlarge)
