Bags are packed and diary’s full and I cant wait to get back to the USA. As usual it’s been extremely busy here before my travels but last week I managed to give a day to teach a pattern cutting masterclass . This was for around a hundred students and teachers at Somerset House for the British Fashion Council. It was lovely to asked to attend and it reminded me how much interest there is in our craft. I’m sure I was probably the least fashionable person there but they all seemed to enjoy.
(somerset house, quite a venue)
On my return from the US we’re opening a large ( over 2000 sq ft) new workshop for our bespoke tailoring. It’s a beautiful listed building over three floors. A wonderful environment for maintaining our craft and training new tailors for the future. The tradesmen are all at work at the moment but we should officially open this summer. I’m not sure but It will definitely be one of the largest workshops I know dedicated to one business offering true bespoke hand tailoring. It reminds Paul and I of the old building that was once Anderson & Sheppard’s workshops on Savile Row when we worked there. It’s going to be a fabulous place and you’ll be very welcome to come and see what we do.

Also, I’d like to welcome back Christopher Price to English Cut. Some of you may remember him from six years ago. It’s great to have Chris back and he’ll be helping me run things from our office.
