I purchased this coat for $10 at a charity store quite some months ago. I have done some digging around for information relating to the maker of the coat, but there is next to no mention online apart from phone book references and some dead links on other websites.
The tag says "Peter Moore 32 Savile Row London W.1". Interestingly when I obtained the coat the 32 was covered with correction fluid and a 13 written neatly in its place, which I scratced to reveal the original text. Online phone books state the address as number 13. Could this be a misprint on the label that was covered up?
I would like to learn more about this coat, is the tailor still around today someplace (number 13 is now otherwise occupied according to my research), what is this tailor's reputation, et cetera.
If any readers of this thread know any details, I would appreciate your time in sharing them

Finally, the label - I have erased the client's name for privacy
Thank-you to those who have any information on this coat...
