TIM Arnold (pictured), the Soho Hobo, has released a musical tribute to the hardworking tailors of the West End.
The singer-songwriter’s new track features actor Phil Daniels and pays homage to the area’s historic connections with the tailoring industry, with quips including “It’s not a joke to do bespoke. To make a gent of every bloke.”
Tailors features in the song include Mark Powell in Marshall Street, with the line: “First up is Mr Powell, he’'s always on the prowl. We don’t do made-to-measure, comes the friendly growl.
“Tucked away on Marshall, always looks his best. His workshop is a castle, for the sartorially obsessed.”
The track, Ain’t Made to Measure, is out in July.
