No other book addresses the topic as clearly and as concise as this
one . . . I would consider it a 'Bible' on the subject. It is
packed with information, challenges and solutions. -- Luz Pascal,
The books strength is that is offers a more objective way of assessing fit by giving guidance on what good fit should be something which is not explicit within the clothing industry. It also acknowledges that ideas of good fit can change given a particular season. The book enables students to approach fit is a logical and systematic way and provides solutions which they understand easily and have the skill set to undertake. -- Paula Wren, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
