# Measuring size

Every detail is the key to determine the final qualified suits.

# Each step contains a meticulous expertise

After measuring the size, make it wet and dry again to prevent contraction.
After that, a model size of the measurement is to be determined.
Putting a piece of fabric on as the "core" of the chest region. 
That is the "skeleton" of the suit!

In Sakaeya, in order to show the suit into the fullest, 
2 various materials as the core are used for different parts.
After the core part has fixed,

Fabric is being cut according to the core measured paper.
