New Blog – Luciano Barbera Blog

The famous weaver, Luciano Barbera, provides some illustrated insights to his family business, as well as his views about clothes, and tells some stories on his new blog, which more or less revolve around clothing. So far, there are just a few posts, but I hope he will post continuously so we all can enjoy his wealth of knowledge.

Matthew Farnes – The Savile Row Artisan

After having worked numerous years for Huntsman, as well as the London Legal Dress authority, Ede & Ravenscroft, Matthew Farnes decided to start his own tailoring business in Sackville Street, London last year.

He also started a blog where he regularly shows pictures of his work, provides style advice and simply reports about a tailor’s everyday life.

    I have the london cut book.
    I’ve already paid to reserve my copy through pay-pal.
    Is there a copy in french?

    Cher Guy, I do not know whether there will be a French version but I doubt it. As far as I can tell, there will be a UK Version of the book which is called Savile Row.
