in with the new....

Well I asked for your support and we certainly got it. We've been inundated with wonderfully kind request to take part in our apprenticeship scheme. As I'd hoped we've had more offers than we can accept. In fact without doing a mass email it'll take us a long time to reply to everyone who kindly wrote to us.

I hope you can accept our sincere gratitude by thanking you on English Cut. So many people seem to be ideal for Ethan that we've basically decided to put all the names in a hat and draw out the lucky four people. I'm sorry if this seems a little peculiar but it seems the fairest and most straight forward way.

We'll be in touch within the next few days to let our four patrons arrange a convenient time to be measured. I'm pleased to let you know that our dates are confirmed for our next trip to the United States and we have our tickets for our spring visit in April. Our full itinerary can be found here.

As I said we're soon to have a little makeover which we hope you'll like. However I though it only fair to introduce you to Jamie and Ethan who are of course part of the future of English Cut. You may remember my dear old MG that I used to drive. Well I need something with a little more room. So here's some of the gang with my new old friend a Great British Land Rover.You'll not see it down Savile Row too often as it's not a city type. Of course it's green and although 30 years old it's strong and reliable. Also the other benefit is that after this snap was taken seven of us all went for lunch at the local instead of two.

After the response for our discounted suits it's obvious that there are a lot of people who want to take a step up the sartorial ladder but can't quiet financially stretch that far just yet, especially with Savile Row pricing. With that in mind our US and European customers can find some very tempting offers with the weak British Pound.

I have noticed that my friend Jonathan Quearney is traveling very shortly and offering very good value. This may be a good opportunity for people to try the delights of bespoke for the first time.

Thank you all once again for your support for the crafts future. With so little time and so much to do we'll say adieu and talk soon.
