On the From Tailors With Love podcast this week I interview the legendary bespoke tailor of Soho, Mark Powell. Mark and I met at another podcast interview featuring Gary Kemp last week for the Journal podcast.
About Mark Powell
Mark Powell is considered a maverick in the trade and very much lives up to that moniker. In the past he has tailored for gangster Ronnie Kray, David Bowie and Mick Jagger.
He does ready to wear and bespoke and is very hands on with his store on Marshall Street in Soho, London.
On the podcast Mark talks about Douglas Hayward, Cyril Castle, Anthony Sinclair and Tommy Nutter amongst others. And also hints about his new project with British shoe brand Trickers.
