English cut is a blog from Thomas Mahon, Bespoke Savile Row Tailor, London. I’ve been reading Thomas’s site since Hugh McLeod dropped it on me. Clive Thomson from Slate properly identified why I think it’s so appealing… “After all, suits have many of the things that geeks particularly appreciate: Intense levels of engineering, an obsession with structural elegance, physics, totally wicked gear that’s used to create them, topographic geometry, and materials science that burrows right down to chemistry and – these days – nanotechnology. And when it comes to ties, my god, you’ve got the most awesomely realized application of knot theory on the planet”.
