I was running some errands and came across this shop – it’s funny how you pass a street all the time and then one day it’s like you’re seeing it for the first time. This shop has been here for over 20 years.
All the garments are so beautifully cut and the linings are just gorgeous. I love the women’s coats; they’re timeless with a twist. Everything is understated but with lots of attitude. John Pearse has been a tailor his whole life and his site says so much about his personal style- in many ways it’s one of my favourite sites.
John Pearse is a Tailor of Savile Row which means he makes some of the best bespoke suits in the world. A bespoke suit is created to your specific personal requirements. A bespoke suit is not to be confused with a made to measure suit. To make a bespoke suit a tailor will take many measurements and figuration and then a personal pattern will be hand-drafted and cut from scratch. The suit is entirely hand-made and hand-finished so the care and attention is unparalleled – this is truly the art of suit making.
I never loved menswear until I moved to London and of course when you walk into a shop like this you’ll understand why.
