    Last night I was watching a show on WW2.  They had some moments when they showed some Bob Hope clips, but not from the USO-type shows he used to do, more of like a stage at a theatre.

    His suit/jackets shown fit him so well...just the right amount of cuff, shoulders just right.  He looked like he could wear what he was wearing today.  

    Anyone have any idea who might have been his tailor?

    Don't know about Hope, but at that time
    actors on contract to the major studios
    were given clothing allowances and told
    to have their clothes made by Saville Row
    tailors.
