Last week’s Savile Row Field Day was an unqualified success, with weather that one could never hope to expect in mid-October and all the sheep staying in their pens. The open doors and events at various tailors also went down a storm, with the tours nearly all oversubscribed.

Congratulations to Anda, Poppy and the rest of the organisers on a great event for the Row. Now the quest is on to find another event that is equally effective in drawing the curious public through the tailors’ doors.

Pictured are Derek and Sunna, the two tailors that made my Anderson & Sheppard suit. Derek is an old hand, having been at A&S for 25 years, while Sunna is an apprentice. Look out for the latter on A&S’s upcoming blog.
