On A Roll But Doing It Solo

Roger Shamoun of Zimma Tailors said to me as I tied some bow ties in his window, 'it's hard, I'm a one man band' and I felt like turning to him and saying 'brother, give me a hug, I'm a one man band too'. Ideally, it would be good to turn a one man band into an ensemble, begin a trio, make it a quintet - but in these economically uncertain times, people are doing it tough and there isn't any cheap labour going around that you can use willy nilly, so you need to make the most of your skill sets. 

Roger is of course the brains behind a very astute looking tailoring business located in the Ivy complex off George Street in Sydney's CBD, diagonally opposite Peter Alexander. What Roger is good at is made to measure suiting which he works off new blocks that he designs each season. He also does interesting one offs for customers, like this red woollen shawl lapel evening jacket. If you are in the city and have a spare moment, drop in to see Roger's tie collection, his pocket squares, the suits and of course, our bow ties which have just arrived.
