My name is George Dyer and if you are thinking of coming down to see me in the shop, bell me and I'll 'guide you in' so to speak. I was born in Jamaica and raised in Peckham, South London from the age of 4, and I've been a tailor for the best part of 35 years, and over those years, I have made every style of suit, and covered every fashion going. Mods, Skinheads, Suedeheads, Teds, you name I've grafted it. I recently read a piece by Grayson Perry, and he wrote to be a craftsman was to be working-class nobility. I'll have a bit of that...I was recently asked to describe tailoring, and this is what I said...
The bespoke suit is made to the specific requirements for the client, using traditional hand cutting techniques,along with the traditional hand crafted tailoring methods. It is then fitted and honed to the mind and body of the client. Fashion labels dictate their own styles, and do not the client's personality. Clothes are my passion. Clothes, cloth and linings rule my life. Can't get enough of it.
If you feel that passion, you really should check me out, recent high profile customers have included the likes of actor Martin Freeman, singer Paul Weller, Suggs from Madness, actor Johnny Harris, broadcaster Richard Bacon, boxer David 'The Hayemaker' Haye, writer Paolo Hewitt , actor Colin Salmon, writer /broadcaster Robert Elms, singer Finlay Quaye, DJ Gary Crowley, musician Dennis Greaves, Ian Page from The Secret Affair and Rob Bailey of The New Untouchables - all having suits made. I have also made for hundreds of 'Faces' from the Mod/Skinhead scene. As well as this, I continue to produce fine City suits for Gents and Ladies at a third of the City/West End normal prices.
I cater for all tastes, I can make the suit you dream about.
