Savile Row tailors and a lot of "off row" tailors have been visiting cities like New York, Dallas, L.A, San Francisco and Washington for about 50 years now. Regular readers will know of my trips to see clients in Boston but aside from that until recently I have generally stayed fairly NYC centric. last week I was emailed by a new client who lived in D.C. Always having a can do attitude, after agreeing on a minimum order of two suits, a few days later I made my first visit to the nations capital.
Unfortunately I was there and back in a day so the only sites I saw where at the airport. None the less I gained a new client and two new orders, namely a Dormeuil Amadeus grey stripe suit and a rather bold Loro Piana plaid flannel suit.
In March I am planning a trip to Los Angeles and I will no doubt be visiting D.C again very soon either to see specific clients or maybe to set up a full blown trunk show. If anyone is interested in a D.C, Boston or L.A trunk show do get in touch. If there is sufficient interest I will set something up and of course I am always open to seeing individual clients out of state or abroad, subject to timing and a minimum order.
On another note. not a lot of updates on the blog recently. There has been quite a lot going on this year, aside from being quite busy with a lot of new clients I have been refining my new MTM (made to measure) suit service. In the works is a MTM shirt service to complement the MTM suits and this should be available very soon as well.
