The hand basted canvas front is a special feature where the canvas is attached to the front of the jacket by silk threads so that the top shell of the jacket actually floats on the canvas thus giving more fluidity and drape to the jacket. This is a time consuming and labor intensive process which adds to the price of a suit. This is the traditional old-style way of constructing the jacket or coat as opposed to the modern process of utilizing a high grade fusion and heat treatment.
There is an additional fee for this premium feature and a few extra days may be added to the delivery cycle. Only experienced tailors or very discerning dressers can tell if a suit has been made using hand basting. This is not a feature for the budget conscious nor a feature necessary for those not seeking an extra special product.
