Bespoke tailoring at the Sofitel hotel……
This week has been rather exciting! We have installed two mannequins in the Sofitel St. James’ hotel, in Waterloo Place, London. www.sofitelstjames.com/discoverus/discoverus.shtm
We approached the new General Manager, Nicolas Pesty, about displaying some of our bespoke Savile Row suits in the elegant lobby. Fortunately for us, Mr. Pesty has a creative eye and a passion for beautifully hand crafted goods!
We are delighted with all the enthusiasm that has helped to produce the displays. W. Bill has kindly lent us a length of the Scottish tweed to show the cloth in its un-cut form, to show off the cutting and tailoring skills of Steven Hitchcock. www.wbill.co.uk/
There is also a grey chalk stripe suit in the lobby, the cloth is H. lesser and sons. Rather classic, and harking back to the days of when the building used to be a bank. www.harrisonsofedinburgh.com/collections.html
I will be changing the displays once a month, so if you are staying at the Sofitel St. James’ or looking for an excellent cocktail, be sure to have a good look at the suits!
