Just spoke to Mum she can remeber where you are but like you can't remeber the name. None of the one's mentioned before rang a bell. I remeber one off Argylle St but not near the cross and the Tailors name was Taylor.

Oh Dexter, ah didnae go tae pub's in those days! Noo let me think......Around about 1967-69, the shop was on Argyle Street opposite the Candleriggs, a couple of shops down to the right (looking from the road) there was a toy shop, that mended dolls, (I remember my mammy taking me there with my broken doll when I was about 4 and telling me that my dolly had to into hospital for a wee while to get better)

We might have a breakthrough.....My husband thinks it may have been Edwards.....I still have a strong feeling that Tom featured in the name....maybe that was the name of the man who did the measuring Ha!Ha! Or maybe the one in Partick Cross and the one in Argyle were two differfent tailors altogether!!!!

Ah! well, one day when we're clearing out the loft I might come across the old HP payment book with their name on it!

The tailor you're looking for is Hector Powes, I think! Seem to remember them having a shop in Partick around 50/60s

Have been looking for bespoke tailor on Google and your message came up. Think this is far too late but my husband used to get his suits made at Dick and McGeechie (not sure of that spelling) but don't remember the names of the tailors.

There was a Tailor who had the slogan,' Tailor of taste, out at the shoulder's and in at the waist'. laugh.gif

My husband used to go to Jackson the Tailor. Now if he wants a new suit he goes to Slater's.

Claude Alexander Parkhead was where I had my first made to measure suit, then Hepworth (changed their name to Next in the 80's) Cant remember if Hepworths were in Union Street or Argyle street?

Red Rooster.... Hepworths was in Union Street am certain of that as I was in there many times for a suit in the late 70s?? I can see the shop front if I imagine it but I cannot see exactly where it was on the street.... but I know it was Union Street because thats where all my favourite shops were then.
