Kenneth Branagh in bespoke Cleverley in "My Week with Marilyn"

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure this will inspire me to run out and see the film, but a nice enough fluff piece. I have to say that I was surprised by all the name dropping (Tom Hanks?) . . . and I came away thinking that the most interesting person mentioned in the article was this Stamp fellow . . .

[apologies if this was already posted]

Someone got his historical dates muddled up.

The shoes worn by Olivier in 1957 could not have been made by George Cleverley but by Tuczek (in whose employment GC was at the time). Cleverley left the firm in 1958 to set up his own shop in Cork Street which he closed in 1976(?). The firm ‘Cleverley’ in London’s Royal Arcade, set up by John Carnera and George Glasgow, was established in the mid-90s.

Not quite that line of continuity we are led to believe.

Your knowledge is impressive indeed.

Years ago (maybe 1999) I was doing a work experience placement and had to write a short bit about Terrence Stamp (might have been when The Limey came out).

That man is very much into his bespoke shoes. Had loads made then started doing Pilates which changed his posture and gait enough for him to have to replace them all.

I think Tuczek's grandson is even a member here. He posted a bit ago asking questions. Some people even have a few of his shoes.
