On a visit to one of his tailors today, the Prince Of Wales tried his hand at some sewing. Prince Charles visited Turnbull & Asser factory as part of an extended programme to promote the best of British manufacturing and engineering. Deep in concentration, the Prince Of Wales managed to operate the machine and add some threads to a garment.
Afterwards Clarence house tweeted: “The Prince tries his hand at sewing at the Gloucester Turnbull & Asser factory, he did a good job!”
Turnball & Asser are one of the Prince’s preferred tailors after the Prince stopped wearing bespoke outfits and instead began wearing made-to-measure suits.
Prince Charles was named the best dressed man in the world by Esquire magazine in 2009 and has always been complimented on his choice of threads.
Turnbull & Asser, known for their colourful shirts, was named as one of his preferred tailors. They have had the royal warrant from their shirts from Prince Charles since 1980.
The Prince of Wales has a very select pool of tailors he uses and has remained largely loyal to the brands.
