Further to our article on "laying a sleeve head strip and a felt shoulder pad" on a jacket or coat (and its video tutorial), we are expanding our range of sleeve head strips and we present new shoulder pads we did manufacture to meet our flair requirements.
Here is a picture of the difference between the shoulder pad that we offered you in 2015, the classic one and the one we have created for you in 2016 (which replaces the previous one), the felt shoulder pad A&A:
The cotton wadding does not subside in time unlike the polyurethane foam which also tends to disintegrate.
The tailor's canvas layer ensures good support and is better suited to the rounded shoulder. You will also notice that the shoulder pad naturally takes a rounded manner. This shoulder pad therefore stands much better than the last.
In addition, we now offer 3 different sleeve head strips:
- The most common and universal, sold by the meter, you have to slightly deform it for the assembly so that it follows the sleeve head. It is made with a layer of wadding + a very thin layer of foam for the flair.
- The shaped sleeve head strip for jackets and coats in heavy fabrics. It is composed of a white wadding layer. This sleeve head strip is already in shape and ready to be installed.
- The shaped sleeve head strip for lighter fabrics that require less support. Warning, if the fabric is a bit transparent, gray can be seen.
All our finishing items: shoulder pads and sleeve head strips are visible in the section "Technical products" of the haberdashery.
