Holland & Sherry’s new ‘Dandy’ tailoring bunch…
( via my tailors, cadandthedandy )
A new trailer for Men of the Cloth, the film, by Vicki Vasilopoulis, in some part, crowd funded, about three very different, yet incredibly similar Italian men who have, or had a passion for Tailoring ( unfortunately master tailor Joseph E. Centofanti died in October last year ) The film should be at festivals later this year followed by a release on DVD.
A few weeks ago I decided to place an experimental order for some summer trousers from StyleForum ‘Affiliate Vendor’, Luxire Custom Clothing, a specialist clothing manufacturer based in India, apparently the factory manufactures for several well known designers, specialising in shirts, but are ready and willing to go to just about any lengths to produce any tailored garment.
All in all, I am very happy with the results, the waist could be winched in a little, I have lost some weight recently, quite a lot, & hadn’t compensated enough.
I will be ordering again.
Another film to look forward to from Kid Dandy & the armoury Focusing on their favourite Maestro Antonio Liverano & his sense of style & colour.
Some of the lovely checked cloth hand loomed on site by Cad & the Dandy for their launch party. click through the photo for more pics of the party.
Right, I’m off to Savile Row for a party!
My tailors, Cad & the Dandy, are opening a permanent show room on the Row, and have been kind enough to invite me for some cocktails to celebrate !
"There is no such thing as a good fit that is uncomfortable. The good fit, which, as I have said, must be allied to cutting, must never have any appearance of strain anywhere, and it should look as relaxed as you feel."
