Synopsis: A Kitchen Confidential for the tailoring trade, written by one of the world's most successful and celebrated tailors—crafter of suits for Kiefer Sutherland, George Michael, Bryan Ferry, and Sir Ian McKellen, among many others

A witty and candid inside account of life on Savile Row, where the world's finest handcut suits are made, this is also the true-life story of a boy who left school to start work on a pittance and rose to the pinnacle of his profession. In 1982 for a £2,000 (approximately $3,100) yearly salary, the 17-year-old Richard Anderson became an apprentice at Huntsmans, the most venerable of Savile Row tailors, and 19 years later, he opened his own eponymous business on the world-famous "Golden Mile," where he hand-cuts exquisite suits for a global clientele. Training in the art of making pants and coats that could cost as much as $15,000 was a grueling game, but Richard persisted to become the youngest head cutter in Huntsman's 150-year-old history, and here he reveals the consummate craftsmanship and perfectionism that goes into a handmade suit and the years of sweat and work it takes to learn it. Readers are introduced to an extraordinary cast of characters who peopled Huntsmans from the boardroom to the backroom, as well as clients who range from politicians to music icons and Hollywood movie stars.

About the Author: Richard Anderson has worked on Savile Row for more than 25 years. He is master cutter, managing director, and cofounder of Richard Anderson Ltd, the youngest bespoke tailoring house on Savile Row. One of the most influential figures in American fashion. André Leon Talley is a contributing editor of Vogue, a judge on America's Next Top Model, the author of A. L. T.: A Memoir, and has been featured as one of Out Magazine's 50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America.

Book Description Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1982 for the princely sum of GBP2,000 a year the seventeen-year-old Richard Anderson became an apprentice at Huntsmans, the most venerable of Savile Row tailors. Nineteen years later he opened his own eponymous business on the world-famous Golden Mile , where he hand-cuts exquisite suits for a global clientele. In Bespoke he does for the world of tailoring what Kitchen Confidential did for the world of haute cuisine. With him we learn the consummate craftsmanship and pefectionism that goes into a hand-made suit and the years of sweat and graft it takes to learn it. Training in the art of making trousers and coats that could cost as much as GBP10,000 was a gruelling game, but Richard persisted to become the youngest head cutter in Huntsman s 150-year-old history. We meet the extraordinary cast of characters who peopled Huntsmans from the boardroom to the backroom -- the debonair Colin Hammick, the grumpy eccentric Brian Hall and Dick Lakey, the heroically overworked leg man . Not to mention the no less colourful clients, who ranged from politicians and peers of the realm to music icons and Hollywood movie stars. Frequently funny and told with great candour, Bespokeis a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes on Savile Row. You ll never look at a suit in the same light again.
