Savile Row no longer suits Prince of Wales
18/07/2008

With the number of tailors in Savile Row declining and criticisms from the likes of Giorgio Armani that it has not moved with the times, the home of bespoke tailoring has suffered a further setback.

Unfortunately they are a little stuck in the mud. Their suits are superb quality, but the cut is the same as 40-50 years ago and they can be reluctant to use modern fabrics. It would be a great pity if they all closed down though.

Mystery surrounded the tailor concerned.
A Clarence House spokesman declined to comment and Fayed, whose brother Ali owns Turnbull & Asser, the provider of shirts for the Prince, would say only:
"If Prince Charles wishes to emulate my elegance then he's most welcome.
After all, I have heard that imitation is the highest form of flattery."

As if employing the same tailor is a kind of imitation.

I saw that and had to chuckle. Fayed, to put it nicely, is rather plump and quite simply does not have the bearing, so I don't think Chales is imitating Fayed.

With Prince Charles now using same tailor as Ali Fayed, [is this Tailor actually employed by Ali in one of his shops?], and Prince William being a friend of Camilla Fayed [and, who also attended Diana's memorial service], it seems they still maintain a cordial connection with the Fayeds, regardless of the morbid obsessions of Mohammed al Fayed.

Prince Charles has been buying his shirts and ties from Turnbull & Asser for decades - long before the Fayeds ever took it over. In fact I wouldn't put it past them to have deliberately targeted Turnbull & Asser for a take over just so they could try to claim some sort of association. After all Prince Charles took his custom away from Fayed-owned Harrods years ago.

They have certainly made the last 10yrs a nightmare for the royals. Hope Prince Charles does a rethink over his suits

They certainly need help, with more and more closing down. I do however feel there is a genuine need for the bigger out of town shops.

It is a great pleasure for me that so many of you have been able to give up your very precious time to come down to these woods today to have a look at the horse logging side of life. As some of you may realise, I have become Patron of the British Horse Logging Association, of which I’m enormously proud.

Thank you for this article milla Ca. It is wonderful that Charles and Camilla honour our troops in this way and I am pretty sure that the 'boys' appreciate it!

The Al-Fayeds seem to have developed a bit of a record in buying up trophy British "insitutions" and running them to the ground. eg The Punch M<angazine - since shut down; Fulham Football Club - struggling; Harrods - struggling, compared with Selfridges and Harvey Nicks (incidentially both of which are owned by foreigners!)..... Moral of the story: if the Al- Fayeds are buiyig something, it will surely be struggling in a few years!!!
