Fused/glued suit interlinings, number 3:

Overall, a glued suit is just very unexciting to wear. With a fused interlining, you also do not end up with a nice lapel roll. Usually, they are quite flat which looks unexciting, and it is a hallmark of a cheap glued suit. Because of the interlining, it always stands in an awkward manner and there is really nothing you can do about it, it just looks off to a trained eye. Moreover, these fused jackets are not made to last because eventually, they will come loose and at that point, it, will form ugly blisters on your lapel and on the outside, that is when you have to throw the garment away. When you buy a fused suit, you are part of the throwaway economy because the resources that are used have to be thrown away and it is also bad for your wallet because even though the initial investment is low, you have to buy it over and over again. Glued suit deteriorates over time and then at one point in time when you get the blisters, you can throw it away and it is worthless.

Full canvas suit construction, number 1:

First of all, the only disadvantage of this method is that it is quite time-consuming and therefore expensive, however, it has many advantages. The interlining is sewn to the fabric and as such, it is flexible. When you move, it moves with you, it is comfortable, there are no pressure points, over time, the garment actually gets better. On top of that, you can decide what kind of stiffness you go for. On a traditional suit, tailors used horse hair because it was very stiff and springy and it could keep the shape even though you wrinkle it.
