Join us at the charming setting of the Old Woollen for a fantastic evening with TV Presenter and judge of the BAFTA-nominated BBC series, The Great British Sewing Bee, Patrick Grant. Patrick will be in conversation with William Gaunt about his career which spans almost two decades in the fashion industry.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to hear the talented Patrick Grant and get a signed copy of his new book ‘The Savile Row Suit.’

Savile Row is the home of bespoke tailoring. This short street is home to many of the world’s finest tailoring houses, a street where for over 200 years royals, rock stars, and giants of the business and political worlds have come to have their clothes cut, sewn and fitted. Patrick Grant, co-owner of Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons, describes the long-standing traditions of craftsmanship that are maintained in the workrooms of this quiet corner of London’s Mayfair – a fascinating and uniquely storied world. He celebrates the extraordinary ecosystem, from the British weavers and cloth houses to the trimmings merchants, that allows Savile Row to flourish. Grant shines a light on the captivating story of Savile Row, the painstaking processes required to create a bespoke garment, and the story of his personal experiences on this most famous thoroughfare.

This book details, for the first time, the complete tailoring methods of several of Savile Row’s finest sewing tailors, providing a detailed step-by-step manual on how to hand-make a pair of trousers, waistcoat, and coat in the Savile Row style, and a shirt in the style of one of Jermyn Street’s finest shirt makers. Richly illustrated, this book gives an insight into a highly discreet and rarefied world of craftsmanship.

Patrick is the co-owner of Norton & Sons and the co-owner and Director of Community Clothing. He won Menswear Designer of the Year at the 2010 British Fashion Awards.
