A ripping time in New York……
We are now in New York, to see our American clients. We have had a few appointments, with Sunday always being our busiest day. We met quite a few new faces that have already experienced the soft drape cut elsewhere, but are now looking for new vigour in their bespoke suits. It has been a pleasure to meet so many people who have enjoyed my father’s tailoring and to wish him so well in his retirement.
Through meeting all the new clients, I still have the loyal clients fittings to do! I like to fit my clients and as soon as I can, I rip down their fittings and re-mark them. This is so the new measures and configurations are fresh in my mind and not forgotten by the time I get back to London. jet lag can cause havoc with memory!
Here are a few photos of me working on a baste and re-marking what needs to be done when I get home.
