To celebrate moving to a permanent space at No.13 Savile Row, My tailors, Cad & the Dandy, decided to do something a little special. Weaving a lovely checked cloth on a beautiful Georgian hand loom on site & then proceeding to cut, tailor & finish the suit entirely on the Row.
Congratulations to all the wonderful folks at C & the D. ( & thanks for the hangover! )
