The Tommy Nutter Suit Created For Ringo Starr - On Display At Holland And Sherry
The Australian office for Holland & Sherry was kind enough to pass on some information about the suit which was recently part of the stamp collection issued in the United Kingdom which celebrates the UK fashion industry. The best stamp out of the batch was the Tommy Nutter suit designed for Ringo Starr in the 1970's. The suit cloth had to be reproduced for David Mason who owns the name for Nutters by the mills of Holland & Sherry who then loomed a replica fabric in time for London Fashion week. At the time when Nutter created the suit, he was working for Kilgour, French and Stanbury, which was then part of the Holland & Sherry group.
