    I wonder if he'll lose his warrant over that comment about Prince Charles in his underwear.

    His suits don't seem to fit himself exceptionally well.

    He does not hold one.

    It looks like one of these bad ads from the seventies...
    Sorry guys but i did find that annoyingly bad...
    If you are of the best tailor in the world , you do not need some tacky doc to demonstrate it...
    John Kent will never do that...
    The great tailors do not talk about their clients..

    I found it interesting. Seeing all these places we're constantly reading about.

    Cool video; thanks to the original poster for bringing it to our attention. Warwick Hall is beautiful, it must be neat working there.

    In my attempt to better discern between true bespoke and the others (semi-bespoke or high end MTM?) I was surprised that while Thomas is the cutter and the fitter, he isn't the one sewing up the garment - rather it's a tailor in a shed [​IMG]. I thought true bespoke meant one person would be in the process right from the beginning all the way to the end. Anyone care to clarify this point?

    It is very common for folks to be trained in either cutting or sewing, but not both.
