It’s never easy to explain what many people would call the mystery of our craft but I certainly hope our little movie was at least slightly enlightening. Creating a pattern by this method can seem rather vague, especially, when you are trying to teach the process. By its very nature it’s basically one third technical and two thirds artistic.
However, I’m not going to beat myself up about how clear or unclear I made the process, I just hope you got a little enjoyment out of it and perhaps a little more knowledge. No doubt many of you gave up watching the entire video so you probably missed the last bit where I explained that we have some exciting news
Firstly, I’m delighted to say that our new made-to-measure service is up and running. Of course you’re very welcome to visit us here at the Hall, but what may be a little more convenient will be to meet me in our new London office. I say “new” because we are about to move to a beautiful tailor’s shop at number 11 St. George Street, W1 which is basically just around the corner from the north end of Savile Row.
If you read earlier you’ll know that our new service starts at £1400 for a hand made two piece made from English cloth. Our delivery time will be 5-6 weeks. If you’d care to take advantage of our new range then please contact us and we’ll arrange an appointment for you. I’m obviously very proud of what we’ve achieved but here’s a reminder of what Esquire thought.
I will be meeting my bespoke clients here and also on specific days only our made-to-measure clients. The first date we are offering our new service in London will be Friday 16th September. I will then be taking appointments every two weeks. Also, because we are rather excited about our new range, we’ll be having a little launch party at Morton’s club which is just around the corner. Although I would love to invite all of the English Cut readers, I’m afraid the venue’s not big enough and my pockets aren’t deep enough so it’s by invitation only.

We have various people from the media and tailoring and fashion world attending and also some interested people from our industry. If you are involved in our business and would really like to come and have a look at what we’re doing and drink some of my free, very good champagne, then please write to me and I’ll try to fit you in.
