On the Street…Savile Row, London

22017londonfw

This is Tanaka, the very knowledgeable salesperson at @josephfashion in London that helped me buy my first pair of elastic waist, grey wool flannel pants and ,ironically enough, I bought them on Savile Row.

 

Shouldn’t every salesperson that sells clothing have a tape measure around their neck at all times?

    He is gorgeous – I love his ‘bashful’ expression at being photographed. The Great British Reserve!

    First off, noticed he didn’t go for a trend or a look. Just a really well tailored suit with a simple white shirt. Interestingly no tie. To me elegance like this requires a tailor. You rarely get this with off the peg.

    Not necessarily. My father, grandfather and great grandfather were master tailors and they would place the tape measure on a table near where a client would stand. They would rarely wear a tape measure around the neck unless they were at their tables actually using it cutting a pattern.

    Salesmen that wear tape measures smell of pretentiousness.

      As a salesman, I fully agree with you and thank you for your forthrightness.

    You are right of course but not every salesperson
    deserves a tape measure as insignum

    Light and mid-grey wool flannel pants are widely regarded as a menswear staple due to their versatility. And rightly so. But a trim fit is essential, to avoid any draping or bagginess whatsoever, and the crease is important enough to warrant buying your own trouser press.
