Tailoring is definitely a lost art, yet the current bespoke movement presents an auspicious opportunity for the resuscitation of it. Read this vintage Esquire article from 1960 on Dandyism.net on tailoring, and the best dressed men (a great list of fine dressers comes at the end of the piece). It’s wonderful to see how good journalism was back in that day, and how good the styles really were, yet frustrating to see that men’s magazines these days pale by comparison. Check the article here.
