Xenia Hejda - Bespoke Shirtmaker

At the same time as I met Salvatore and studied his books, I was also introduced to Xenia Hejda, who was making my friend's shirts at the same time. Xenia does full bespoke shirt making - that is, she does not use a block, each component is hand cut, with two to three fittings to get the cut right. She uses french seems on the side and can do any detail you like. Her prices are NOT CHEAP though. So buyer beware, unless you have the money you won't get the honey.

Prices start from $325 a shirt. If you take her your own fabric she can do a shirt at $250.00. I think this price is too high but I am told her workmanship shows itself in the final product.

Salvatore Finocchiaro - Bespoke Tailor - Sydney.

Every now and then you find a gem right under your nose where you never expected it to be. As you may or may not know, Holland & Sherry cloth is located in Bathurst Street, Sydney. Today a good friend of mine asked me if I'd like to meet his tailor. It turned out he worked in the same building as H&S.

Salvatore is a typical Italian bespoke tailor. He does not use a block, he uses the best canvas, the best felt and he has the best fabric books. Loro Piana, Scabal, Zegna, Holland & Sherry to name but a few. I would suggest going and seeing him. Prices start from $2200 for jackets. Around $4k for a suit.

Tass Revisited and a new look from Sydney

I very much like the look of the guy on the left. He looks a little Russian adolescent, or maybe Polish, I can't quite make out where I have seen a look like that. I think it might remind me of my school book texts depicting Russian revolutionairy youth culture during Glasnost.

Above, ever the cad, Hayden Kemp sports the new Tass Revisited bow which is made from a Mogador silk which is made with a cotton warp and a silk weft giving a punchy brilliant finish to the silk. There is very little stock, so numbers are very much limited.
