Sexton is a living Savile Row legend and will make Savile Row quality clothing using the same method as on Savile Row; however, can not be called a Savile Row tailor while on Beauchamp Place.
You see to me that doesn't make sense.
How can a man be a Savile Row legend but not a Savile Row tailor?
Savile Row is not just a road, it's a style, a philosophy and a construction method. Sexton adheres to all of these.


Anyway I'm not actually calling him a Savile Row tailor I'm calling him an off-Row tailor. ;)

Joe Torre is a Yankees legend, yet manages the Dodgers.

The issue with 'off-Row' is how far does that boundary end. If Sexton opened a shop in Sydney and that was the shop he worked in, would you still call him 'off-Row'?

In my opinion, he should have opened on The Row, but that is another matter.

I knew you'd bring up a football reference.

I wouldn't call Sexton off-Row if he moved to Sydney no, but I don't think it's outrageous to call any tailor that's still in the UK off-Row if they spent some time on the Row.

The 'off' part of 'off-row' doesn't mean 'just off' the Row imo.
It means any tailor who is a proper SR tailor (i.e. they were trained there and worked there for a long time) who has left the Row and is therefore not 'on' it anymore.

Mr. Pipps, Three excellent suits. I would agree that from the back the blades look a little loose and the lower back very suppressed. To me this creates a bit of a contradiction, where either the blades should be taken in a bit or the lower back let out, which would compromise the silhouette. I agree with Alex that the work to balance the shoulders is very nice. When I saw the shirt only picture I was shocked at your shoulder angle and how it didn't show on the suits. My only other critique is that the sleeve may be slightly too large in circumference. As a matter of taste it just seems that a slightly more tapered sleeve would match the style of the waist suppression.

However, that said, I understand that Mr Littman is currently working on something which is an even greater step towards a bespoke-quality MTM garment. And I think I may be able to provide some new photographs on this precise topic sometime in the not too distant future!

I'll be very interested to hear more Mr. Pipps.
