My latest video tells the story of a visit to Savile Row with Matthias Roux and Matthew Rice of Casimi Guitars in 2017. It also features a sneak peak at a new track "Sabiro" which takes its name from the Japanese word for a suit which in turn takes its name from the heart of British tailoring. With me so far? Good!
I've long found Savile Row and its history to be fascinating, and there are many similarities with the world of guitar making, especially at the custom level. The word "bespoke" has its roots in Savile Row too. It's a much abused word these days (I even heard it used as a verb on one hideous occasion recently) but that, in essence, is what goes on in Mayfair as much as it does in Muizenberg.
Until next time, Stay Tuned
