english cut documentary
Just before Christmas, the groovy cats at Border TV made a half-hour documentary of my frequent partner-in-crime, Savile Row tailor, Thomas Mahon. [The full Google video page is here.]
Cumbria for me seems a long way away from Alpine, Texas at the moment. Nonetheless, seeing Thomas in his element [Take it from me- they did a really splendid job of capturing his schtick] made me feel so proud to be part of the adventure. I highly urge you to give it a watch. Look for me making a cameo appearance during the dinner party in the second half. Rock on.
[Bonus:] I kid you not: One of the best Ladies' tailors IN THE WORLD is currently in NYNY till March 18th. Hurrah!

This is so much fun to see Thomas in his element. I'm happy to see the English Cut story brought to life with video.
I may not be able to afford one of these suits now, but because of this blog, which I've been reading for quite a while, I'm dedicated to owning one of these before I die.
So, Cumbria is your Mistress, and Alpine is your wife ?
But you'll never return back to New york because it'll burn your soul, am i right ?
New york then Cumbria then Alpine.. Hugh you're full of experience.
Great to see such a relaxed, cool guy doing what he loves on his own terms. Excellent.
Loved seeing this. Read about your adventures with Thomas for about 4 years and to see it all brought to life was like seeing a charming biopic on a friend you've never met. Wait, that's exactly what it was.
You came off dashing too, Hugh.
