Tucked away on Cross Street Islington is one of the best tailors you're likely to meet in the UK. Joe Allen has been in Islington for more than 30 years and in that time he's build a reputation as one of the best tailors and designers in the UK. You only have to look at his list of clients to get an idea of where he fits in to in the world of tailoring. The likes of Madness, INXS, Lulu, The Kooks to name a few through to members of the royal family have all have suits and dresses made and designed by Joe.
My reason for mentioning Joe today is that he has started running weekend course on how to become a master tailor. While he may not be a household name his reputation in the industry is second to none. The first he is running will be on how to make suit trousers running on Sundays, but give him a call as he will look to accommodate special requests for courses. This is a chance that doesn't come around too often and I have a feeling he'll be booked up pretty quickly so I’d advise giving him a call to have a chat.

Joe’s style is very personable and he’s a very easy person to get on with always like to smile and have a joke. This is a real opportunity to be taught by one of the finest tailors around.
