Having said that I've made and do make some rather creative and unusual pieces and I think that is one of my strengths. I mean I used to work with Elton John, Sean Combs, Nick Cave and Brain Fairy (see what I did there?). Most of my clients are advertising or creative execs, trial lawyers, client facing business owners, some rather flamboyant British Military, not so many first year analysts or very conservative types although in some ways I think my suits can be quite conservative. It's certainly not a hipster style suit but it is certainly modern and relevant.

Maybe it's more about the grown up hipster.

What sort of things do the flamboyant military types order?

This is what its all about, attention to detail. Studying the "correct" buttonhole placement on this 1 button suit. The chalk marks on the front show two possible different button placements, with about a 1/2" difference between them. In this case I went with the higher placement.



When I am personally happy with the button hole placement on every single suit, I then take it myself directly to the buttonhole maker who naturally adds the buttonholes by hand.

Things like DB suits in H Lesser, they don't order things that are flamboyant but rather they are themselves, Guards officers do tend to like the Champagne.

I think they like what I do because its very classical English but very neat with a touch more flair, again not hipster suits but not not dated either.

One brigadier I know is just how you would imagine a typical Victorian (or even napoleonic) era British officer, a bit like Michael Caine in Zulu!

Thanks, this was the first time I could really put my personality in the space as in regards to the interior.

Next time will be grander.

I look forward to stopping in some time, do you handle alterations now as well?
