The passing of a New Zealand sartorial icon
It is with sad news (thanks to a tip from Murray Crane) that Malcolm Heard, a former Saville Row tailor, who set up shop in New Zealand some years ago, has passed away. I had the pleasure of spending a day with him and Brendan, his business partner, in the making a a TV episode about bespoke. Malcolm had strong opinions about mens tailoring, but were always reinforced with an incredible knowledge of the finer details of how a man should wear a suit. Such skill, gleaned from years of working with the worlds finest tailors showed in the work he produced. As they say, he was the real deal.
