Ginza Tokyo 1962.jpg


This is a great image of the now affluent area of Ginza, know for its fine tailors. These two young men are wearing great examples of bespoke suits. The image is big enough to examine its details well.

Perhaps tailored locally or who knows perhaps they were in fact themselves young tailors working in Ginza. Never the less great craftsmanship.

Today in Japan the craft of English Bespoke Tailoring is unknown to most. The aim when meeting new customers in Japan has always been to introduce customers to the British style and way of making clothes. So therefore I adopt an informal approach in my meetings and encourage people who are curious to make appointments as well as the more experienced bespoke wearer. We can discuss the development of personal style and the steps involved in having a garment hand crafted and why is British wool worsted is so good.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

April North American trip


Delayed Announcement for those of you that don't already know I have relocated my family to Spain. This has meant the spring trip has not been planned so ahead of time. The move happened less than 2 weeks ago and the commute to the shop in London has been so for so good. I think a travel suit is needed and perhaps a Cotton or a Linen for Spain :-)

Escaping the never-ending London winter, I'm heading west in search of spring, carrying my best selection of cloths with me.

The selection will include

• Best of British lightweight and reliable business wear medium weight worsteds these are essential staples for your wardrobe if you don’t have a couple of British worsteds they’re a very wise investment that last.

• Vintage linens, amazing texture yarn dyed for extra depth of colour that improves with age.

• Worsted spun cotton resists creasing for a cleaner look. Until now cotton never draped like this but now cotton suit is a great option.

• Luxury yarns blended to make some other the most beautiful colour palette’s perfect to try our in new deconstructed jacket.

• The Deconstructed jacket is a must have travel companion for business trips and holidays. It makes up beautifully in lightweight wool worsted, cotton or linen and even cashmeres for the ultimate well cut blanket ☺

The full itinerary is below I will be looking forward to seeing customers new, old or simply curious to know come your all welcome!

Los Angeles – Wednesday 03rd- Friday 05th - The Sunset Tower Hotel at 8358 Sunset Boulevard
Vancouver - Friday 05th- Saturday 06th - The Fairmont Hotel 900 West Georgia Street
New York Sunday 06th - Tuesday 09th - The Benjamin at 125 East 50th Street

If any of you would like to come and visit me or make an appointment please do get in touch, as there are still some appointments available.

This Fall the dates for my US & Canada trip are distinctly Winter-like. But with Christmas approaching perhaps temptation will turn to necessity as the festive season warrants smart attire and the tweeds I am getting in are nothing less than irresistible.

25th-27th Los Angeles – staying at the Sunset Tower Hotel at 8358 Sunset Boulevard.
27th-28th Vancouver- staying at the L’Hermitage on 788 Richards Street
29th November-2nd December New York- staying at The Benjamin at 125 East 50th Street
