[COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.792969)]I had the great good fortune yesterday, of stumbling upon a hidden treasure: D.Major Bespoke Tailor in Fulham. Connoisseurs of the James Bond films may recognise the name. Dimi Major made the suits worn by George Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. He also made suits privately for Sean Connery[/COLOR] and innumerable other household names. After training at Bailey and Weatherill, he acquired his premises in Fulham, where for a time he was in partnership with Douglas Hayward, before Hayward moved to Mount street in Mayfair. Sadly, Dimi passed away in 2004, but the firm remains in family ownership. I highly recommend a visit to this establishment, who, despite their illustrious heritage are very approachable. For anyone considering their first bespoke suit, I can't think of a better recommendation. I only wish I had known about them when I bought mine. Simon Crompton once wrote that Grahame Brown was the best value tailor he knew. If you think that's true, give Major's a call, and I suspect you will have changed your mind.
