Adrien was a Tailleur (Tailor).
It was in the year 1588 that the occupation of tailleur d’habits, or tailor, appeared in France. The tailleur d’habits referred to a tailor who made all items of clothing for men and women. In 1675, Louis XIV decided that women could also make clothing, but that they would be called couturières, or seamstresses, have their own guild, and could only make clothes for women and girls. In a nutshell, the tailor would cut, sew, make & sell clothing.
