There was a great deal of tailored fashion going about this past season and many of us sought to include some tailored men's cuts in our own wardrobes. There is something about tailors which belongs to old-world class, style, stamina and tradition that particularly entices me. Inspired by a visit to a tailoring firm, I ventured out to search some more about tailors and tailoring and this is what came my way.....

"The only man who behaves sensibly is my tailor - he takes my measurements anew every time he sees me, while all the rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them."
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
