A bespoke Tailor

Shot with Olympus E520
Time was when you would find a tailor in most localities; having a first suit made was a rite of passage, Not many places like this now. It's hard to image going into Marks & Spencer and ordering a custom made suit as you could from Burton's. This tailor is hidden away from view in the alleys, behind Cornhill (see yesterday) - Castles in Castle Street.And todays useless fact is that "Bespoke" just means to order - to bespeak - the suit.
