1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'm selling my copy of the Anderson&Sheppard company history book. I had a look at what it's selling for in online books stores, and it seems that this book is something of a rarity today. Still, my price is a Styleforum members-only middle range.

    If you like Savile Row and A&S, you will be delighted by the photos and quality printing.

    I've read this through once and the copy is like new.

    I ship worldwide at buyer's expense -- please note this is a heavy and large book.

    Here's the usual info:

    "Anderson & Sheppard: A Style Is Born takes a privileged look behind the scenes of one of Britain's best-kept fashion secrets - from the firm's early days as the renegade of Savile Row to its current status as a byword for taste, relaxed stylishness and supreme quality - and as the establishment of choice for the elite of today's fashion, film, business and diplomatic worlds. Edited by Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter and Cullen Murphy - with modern photographs by Jonathan Becker and Christopher Simon Sykes; exuberant paintings by the incomparable Paul Cox; and a playfully elegant historical essay by David Kamp - this unique book lays bare century-old traditions, tailor's tricks and painstakingly detailed craftsmanship, as well as showcasing Anderson & Sheppard's famous measure books and its wide range of exclusive cloths. A selection of the firm's distinguished clientele offers first-person accounts of their experiences at Anderson & Sheppard. This sumptuous edition is packed with stunning images of Anderson & Sheppard's distinctive cut being worn by the leading lights of stage, screen, high society and literary and artistic life. Some of the photographs are vintage - featuring Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Laurence Olivier, Alec Guinness, Noel Coward, Evelyn Waugh and Marlene Dietrich. H.R.H. the Prince of Wales makes an appearance in his wedding suit. But the book also brims with specially commissioned full-colour portraits of today's Anderson & Sheppard clients - including Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Bryan Ferry, Taki Theodoracopulos, Henry Koehler, Jay McInerney, Nicolas Roeg, Manolo Blahnik, Nicky Haslam, Sir John Ritblat and Sebastian Guinness. With over 180 photographs, this beautiful volume is a rare glimpse of the very best of classic British tailoring.
