It's interesting to hear about the other tailors on Savile Row; all those sharing premises with the big houses. The bigger names take a lot of the limelight.


Each phenomenon which is taken up should be treated with as much thoroughness as possible at that standpoint... One thing at a time and that done well!

Peter ur love for the Art of tailoring and ur desire to be connected to this forum at 86, has moved me!

In my country (Nepal) being a tailor is considered being a low cast, untouchable. In my family, nobody supported me when I wanted to learn tailoring. That is why I spent 8 years working as a designer. When I started learning to sew a pant, people looked down on me. Everybody discouraged me, even the tailors i worked with. After I decided to come to New York to learn Pattern making and Jacket construction, people around me were confused n was wondering whats going on. Well, being a tailor is my passion and I love every bit of it.

In my bucket list is to visit Naples and Savil Row. Peter, when I will be strolling in the streets of SR, your story will come alive in my mind and jsrowan you were the chosen one to find the 31-yr old gem and it created an opportuniy for me to be a witness of this touching legacy through this forum. best wishes to u n enjoy wearing the priceless vintage!
