Ladies and Gentlemen.

I am looking for a self-employed freelance coat maker. You must be able to fully make to a very high standard full bespoke coats.

I will cut the coat, prepare and conduct the first fitting, rip down, re-cut and then pass onto the coat maker to push it onto a forward fitting. I may then finish it myself or pass it back to you to finish. So you must be able to finish a coat, and work hand buttonholes to a very high standard.

You don't have to be UK based, post works fine.

Please email me direct, des@dmerrion.com if you are interested. Please tell me your previous experience.

Best, Des.

No, those babies are long gone.

I bought a pair of Heinisch, that you found for sale on eBay, which are great shears. But the handles are really too small for my hands.

I then dropped onto a fantastic pair of Wiss N 7's which I cleaned and sharpened. They fit my hand nicely, I am left handed and have always used righ handed shears, these are now my daily choppers.

But thanks for asking.
