James Sherwood just published at Thames and Hudson a beautiful book on Henry Poole called : The First Tailor of Savile Row (a book we will soon review on PG).
Meanwhile we thought it was a good idea to re-publish the link to a delicious interview James gave to BBC Radio 4 a few years ago about Winston Churchill and Henry Poole.
Sit back and engage yourself in a time when the golden age of tailoring prevailed.
You may recognize a name or two and feel a twinge of intrigue to discover the unique relationship between the renowned tailor and the famed gentleman.Follow this link and enjoy : Churchill 'never paid for his suits'.
