One month ago I went with my class of “Fashion & Luxury Goods Management” to visit Henry Poole & Co shop in Savile Row.
It was an amazing experience get to know the employer and the whole staff of this store.
Henry Poole & Co is a family business now maintained by Simon Cundey, a gentilman who explained us very well the history of this brand.
We have also the opportunity to see the tailors working
There is a long bespoke process behind each garment.
The garment, in fact, is assigned to a particular highly skilled tailor where it is canvassed by hand and readied for the first fitting.
The tailor will stay with the client during their time as a Henry Poole customer, so giving consistency to the look and feel of all the client’s future garments.
