(GINZA TOKYO 1962)
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.
lightly padded shoulders
flat sleeve crowns
soft rolling lapels
tailored trouser break
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,
