New Name, Same Content

Craig shares the detail behind his decision to change from That Dapper Chap to Eldred Grove

As William Shakespeare once said “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” and that’s the first thing I want to let you know. While the name has changed from That Dapper Chap to Eldred Grove, I will continue to offer the same insights, share details of great products and experiences and discuss topics of interest. The name is the only things which has changed. Now to tell you why!

The smartly dress, handsome young man above is my Maternal Grandfather. He was a bit of a cheeky chap and always ready with a joke. He was a hard worker and my inspiration. His name was Eldred and he committed suicide when I was nine years old. I’ve thought about him every day since and still miss him. View Post

A Bespoke Shirt From Hemingway Tailors

Craig shares his experience with Hemingway Tailors and shows off his new bespoke shirt

As men we wear a lot of shirts and we’ve all seen those guys in ill fitting, baggy monstrosities, sagging at the collar and too long at the arms. On the flip side we’ve also seen the ones where the buttons strain and gape at the chest. All utterly dreadful, and all to be avoided, unless you want to look like you been at the dressing up box.
A well fitted shirt says a lot about a man. It shows that you take yourself seriously and care about your appearance. That said, allow me to introduce Hemingway Tailors.

With an office in South London Hemingway offer bespoke tailoring to London clients

With over ten years behind them offering men’s and women’s tailoring services, access to the world’s finest fabrics and over 90 years of tailoring heritage, Hemingway Tailors are a good choice when looking for made to measure or bespoke tailoring.
With a head office in Leeds and one in South London I headed over to meet them. Nestled in a pretty little courtyard in Kennington sits Hemingway Tailors. I met with Mark Banks, a tailor for 14 years Mark provides a personal tailoring service to Hemingway’s clients in London. Mark recognises the changes in tailoring and knows that advances in technology has helped produce a consistently high standard in his industry.
