[Thomas awash in Xmas cheer etc.]
Yesterday was our second annual English Cut Christmas party.
Thomas and I hired an old 1960s double decker bus and ferried 50-odd people- an eclectic bunch of tailors, suppliers, customers and friends- down to Leeming House on the banks of Ullswater, for a slap-up meal.
It was so lovely I cannot begin to tell you. It’s been an incredible two years. As I said to my guests in my [mercifully short] after-dinner speech, who would’ve guessed that in such a short time, two under-employed mavericks- a marketing guy and a Savile Row tailor- would create such a wonderful little company?
In my opinion the cool thing about English Cut is not the product, or how much money it makes. The cool thing about English Cut is that it makes a lot of people very happy. And yesterday more than confirmed this.
That’s what it’s all about, really.
