Henry Poole & Co
During this interview with Henry Poole & Co we could not stop filming and asking questions.
I was amazed with their history and could not stop thinking if there ever going to be another clothing company that would have such an impact on not just the art & music & society but also on politics & country’s culture?
Even 200 years later they are doing the same, a bespoke & individual suit. They never tried to be fashionable because this is not what they sell. Everyone can sell fashion but not the style. This is why you should go to a craftsmen to get yourself a suit and not to buy one at the food shop.
I am not saying that only people on Savile Row could make you a nice jacket, there are a lot of skillful tailors in the city.
The point is, man’s clothing should be made FOR him. You should not be walking around the shops and trying to fit in different suits made by children in Bangladesh.
