The recent international release of James’ latest book – Savile Row: The Master Tailors of British Bespoke. The UK launch was held at The Savoy Hotel on The Strand was a bit of a who’s who of the Savile Row scene. I saw many familiar faces from my years in and around Savile Row, and the book itself is beautiful.

The Savoy Hotel’s re-opening after a quarter of a billion pound refit, I had the privilege of working with James on reproductions for the Signature suites (Winston Churchill, Marlene Dietrichts, ) the archive at the Savoy. Having flown back from Tokyo, leaving my ‘just married’ wife behind (and missing out on our planned family trip to a natural hot springs in Hakone), stepping into the at the time unfinished hotel quite jet-lagged and beginning the task of scanning almost 100 historic photographs, some signed, from the hotel’s famous guests. I can’t complain, always a pleasure working with Mr Sherwood (and the lovely Mrs T as she is now known).

Royal Ascot and other TV archives – I have yet to see the footage that I will be putting online but I’m sure there’s some good entertainment to be had of James commenting on the fashion trends during Royal Ascot.

There will also be the latest issues of The Rake and probably some other features such as the latest London Louis Vuitton City Guide.

James’ blog has also become one of his favourite things, aside from technical frustrations from broken laptops, technology seems to be blending well with Savile Row at the moment. Have a look at www.james-sherwood.com/diary
