Reviews

'[A] fascinating book with a serious message about the real costs of fast fashion.'

-- Deborah Bogle * Adelaide Advertiser *

'evocative travelogue and eloquent tribute to the craft of tailoring - in particular a homage to the coat's creator, John Cutler - as well as a spectacular window into the rarified world in which a genuinely bespoke creation bests an uber-designer label any day.'

-- Rebecca Tansley * North and South *

'[A] lively journey . . . Traditions of bespoke tailoring (and other related crafts) are skirting the edge of extinction. Noonan's delightful story makes us hope they endure.'

* Publishers Weekly *

'[A] rich, entertaining read, paying tribute to craftspeople dedicated to timeless quality in a mass-produced, fast-fashion world.'

-- Daniel Herborn * Sydney Morning Herald *

'[U]tterly beguiling account of ... the rarefied world of bespoke tailoring and centuries-old craftsmanship ... an inspiring, often sad, altogether illuminating David and Goliath story of small family businesses pitting their talents against the tide of history.'

-- Bron Sibree * West Australian *

'A fabulous story, brilliantly told ... I couldn't have enjoyed it more.'

-- Bill Bryson
