Signor Francesco, Francesco Sr Tailors
Sr. Francesco still has the passion he had as a young boy; still committed to hand work and the perfect silhouette.

Today, Sr. Francesco embarks on yet another new chapter in his life. Partnering with LeatherFoot Emporium, he brings his contoured and lyrical style of personal tailoring to a new and wider audience.

What do you think is the future of tailoring? Do you see technology replacing the essential art of tailoring for instance, cutting, measuring or producing bespoke suits?
While technology may increasingly play an ever-important role in tailoring, especially on an organizational level, it is doubtful whether it will ever replace the keen eye and experience of the master tailor who must also be an expert in the nuances of human anatomy and movement of the body.
What is Francesco Sr Tailors unique value proposition and how do you acquire your customers?
