The Yorkshire Tailor

The Yorkshire Tailor, It’s been a while, in fact, the last blog post I did was May 2015. I have been very lucky to have been so busy, and this year looks like it’s going to be no different from last year. You may be wondering why this post is called The Yorkshire Tailor, well that happens to be my Twitter handle. So that’s that out-of-the-way.

I have never paid in publications to advertise my tailoring, to be totally honest I don’t need to. I’m a genuine handcrafted bespoke tailor and my services are constantly in demand. I rarely fall below a three-month waiting list for my product. My clients and most people who call into my workroom understand what my product is, real bespoke, cut and fully made on site by me personally. Lots of people may claim to do the same, but the reality and truth is far different. You are not buying a shopping experience from me, you’re buying into the art, craft and heritage of my 33 years as a bespoke tailor. The picture below shows a client in having a first fitting for his three-piece suit.

A client having a first fitting. Sleeve needed a slight alteration, but other than that it was pretty straightforward.

That being said, I do however get a fair amount of free publicity from magazines and organisations that want to talk to a real tailor instead of a salesman or fashion designer. I have been meaning to start a media section, but I don’t like smoke blowing up my backside it’s just not my thing. I pride myself on treating everyone the same, whether you’re a billionaire (yes I make for two) or merely calling in for one suit. I have over the years been featured in various local papers and tv. Last year BBC Capital did a good article, the link is here http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20150206-how-to-buy-a-custom-suit The picture that forms the background of this article as it loads, is actually a coat that is was in my workroom and ready for a first fitting. The coat was sitting on my tailors dummy. I intend to start compiling more of these media articles which I shall then put onto my website.
