Bespoke tailoring in decline

Britain is one of the worlds leaders in fashion and design. But like many prestigious occupations Bespoke Tailors are in decline, Youngsters are not reaching out to learn this valuable craft. Bespoke tailoring skill level is high, the number of years to master this trade is many. With modern technology and the desire to have quick recognition in the limelight, teenagers are less likely to take up this craft.

Despite this luxury tailoring still carries on because of the demand for high quality luxury 1 off garments.  If you are looking for something of quality and uniqueness come and see us at Sean Pounds Tailoring. 01604 519575
