Now here is something extremely rare and fascinating - the premier issue of Man About Town by The Tailor & Cutter! I could scarcely believe my luck when I managed to acquire this.

Sator, that's a real gem!

Bespoke department at Harrods... unbeliavable! Though "Old England" in Paris used to have bespoke department, too -- as, I guess, every big department store back then.

But is there anything else apart of advertisements in the magazine?

Sator:

What a find! Would that sensible men still dressed as well as the illustrations and photos depict. Would that the prices today were as reasonable as they were way back when.

One of my coatmaker friends tried to bid on a copy on eBay a few months back but he forgot he had to confirm his bib as he hadn't used eBay for quite a while! Went for £30 or something like that and he said he'd have placed £60 on it...

Now things start to really get interesting as they start to describe the military airs cut. This will be familiar to those who have read J. King Wilson. He says that there are three types of cut - the drape (fullness at front of armscye), the crooked cut and the military airs cut.
