How does a fully-constructed, tailored jacket differ from semi-constructed or unconstructed jackets?
The details and specifications in a custom made jacket vary from tailor to tailor. Generally, a fully constructed, hand-cut, tailor-made jacket is fully lined
with semi-fusing and partial or full canvas, has some shoulder padding and a more structured, cleaner appearance.
As a rule of thumb, unconstructed jackets only have two layers (the cloth itself and the lining) while semi-constructed jackets have three layers (the cloth, the lining and some fusing).
Fully constructed jackets (most jackets are made this way) have four layers, the fabric, the fusing, the canvas, and the inside lining.
