Tailor made in Cumbria

Thursday, February 25, 2010
Many thanks to Cultural Offering for kindly linking to me, and also for pointing me in the direction of this brilliant video about Thomas Mahon, a former Anderson & Sheppard cutter who now has his own clients and is based partly on Savile Row but, mostly, in Cumbria. Thomas also has his own blog which is well worth a read.

This post is a particularly good one, on all the major Savile Row houses. His comment at the end is especially interesting, about how tailors tend to work for a few different companies and cutters move about a lot. This echoes what James at Cad and the Dandy was telling me the other day about how much the big name tailors work together and help each other out in a way that few other industries probably would.
