Copenhagen is on my mind today for two reasons:
1. In a month I’m going there to participate in Reboot 7.0. A big blogging event, it should be lots of fun. And there will be a geek dinner in London with Robert Scoble 2 days before, on June 7th.
2. English Cut is going to establish a regular scheduled tailor’s visit to Copenhagen, every 4-6 weeks.
There’s a big Scandenavian tadition for bespoke. Mr. Anderson, of Anderson & Sheppard fame was Swedish. And Mr Halberry, the man who trained Thomas (arguably the greatest tailor of the twentieth century, by the way) also had a Swedish family/connection. Besides that, flights from Newcastle (our nearest airport) to Copenhagen are cheap and easy, courtesy of EasyJet.
Right now I’m just putting out feelers; it’s not offical yet on the English Cut website. First on my list is to find a nice, preferably small luxury hotel in Copenhagen. One not unlike The Hotel Benjamin, the hotel Thomas stays in when he’s in New York. Any suggestions?
Second on my list is figuring out how to get the Danish media interested in the story. Any ideas?
So that brings it up to 5 ports of call: Savile Row (London), Paris, New York, San Francisco and Copenhagen. Last on my list is Milan, which will come later. 6 ports of call will be plenty.
Anyway, as always, if you know any Scandenavians with a sartorial fetish, please spread the word. Thanks.
