Hardy Amies was born in London in 1909. He lived and worked in France and Germany before returning to London to work as a couturier. During the war he served as an intelligence officer in the SOE and in 1946 he founded his own fashion house. His salon was one of the few which would rival the great dress houses of Paris. He was dressmaker by appointment to Queen Elizabeth II and was knighted in 1989. He died in 2003.
'This slim, witty book is much more than a treatise on the Englishman's suit ... it is wonderfully enjoyable reading, rather like Galahad at Blandings ...' Auberon Waugh, Daily Telegraph
