henry poole's...

I saw this quote in Businessweek and it made me smile:

As Henry Poole's Simon Cundey told me: "The new guys might get the pop stars and the footballers, but their managers come to us... And they're so much less trouble."
As I've said before, Henry Poole's is one of the stalwarts of Savile Row. A wonderful company with an inpeccable pedigree. Mr. Cundy beautifully expresses a sentiment that all the tailors I know have been saying for years.

[UPDATE:] And in case you're wondering, it's pronounced "SAH-vill".
