Now this is a fabulous blog! English Cut is a blog by a bespoke Saville Row tailor writing about suits and… tailoring and whatever else he feels like. He uses it to promote his bespoke craftsmanship and, by Jove, he’s got it.
The blog is full of interesting information about bespoke as presented by someone who knows a thing or two about it. I have learnt about the different between straight and crooked suit jacket, which has nothing to do with the character of the wearer.
Thomas also gets to make his argument for the high price charged for bespoke… this is what blogs were made for. He is travelling - the US in June, Paris in July - and provides details of his journeys with the option of making an appointment. How on earth could this have been done before blogs came along? Perhaps with a help of an expensive PR agency, but inevitably loosing that personal touch and straightforwardness that I am sure transactions with Thomas have.
Carry on, tailor.
