You Can't Hurry Craft

Patrick Grant Runs His Very Now Businesses with Traditional Values

Posted by Gestalten—01/2015

Craftsmanship is in more demand than ever, and small manufacturers are experiencing an overwhelming renaissance. Creative Director and fashion designer Patrick Grant’s passion for clothing, craftsmanship, and British brands led him to take over Savile Row bespoke tailors Norton & Sons in 2005. Featured in The Craft and the Makers, Grant and his intergenerational staff at Norton & Sons embody the strength of long-standing tailoring traditions with remarkable success. Grant also relaunched the historic British sporting and military tailoring house, E. Tautz in 2009. Gestalten.tv met him there to talk about how the spirit of handcraft shapes his businesses.
