Interview with a Tailor ~ Last month, I was delighted to have been asked to be part of the @whiteley1760 Friday Five Blog interview. William Whiteley & Sons for 258 years, have been designing and manufacturing beautifully hand-crafted industrial scissors & shears in Sheffield; the birthplace of stainless steel! There Friday Five interview was answering 5 questions about my tailoring career! Q3. What made me make the move from Savile Row to Lincolnshire?
After over 20 years in Savile Row, my father who was looking at retirement offered me the opportunity of taking over his long-established tailoring business back here in Lincoln.
I always knew that one day my father would ask me this question but, it wasn’t the easiest decision to make back then, having had a very successful position in Savile Row and also then having recently got married to a local London girl, it would be a big move back!
After lots of discussions and consideration and many sleepless nights, I decided to make a new home back here in Lincoln. Now, I have been back here for 12 years. It’s certainly proved to be the best decision I could have made!
I am very fortunate to still have a really strong bond with Savile Row and friendship with old colleagues. I can pop down to the row and be made to feel very welcome, it’s as if I never left, and then come back to my country home in beautiful Lincolnshire. I guess you could say that I have the best of both worlds!
