Tarelli the tailor

 Tarelli is the small tailor shop on Broad right by the Dolphin Tavern and the Cleaners. I decided to go there to get a coat taken in a little bit, but mostly because I love the way the shop looks.

The shop has been there since he was a kid, it was his older brother's, who then passed it on to him. He loves tailoring, he said he made no money from it, and he should be retired, but he loves tailoring.

So there he is, opening when he wants to, and closing when he wants to, and taking in pants. His suiting fabrics were all laid out to be touched and looked at.

His patterns hung behind the counter like they have been for the last 30 years. He showed me his old style book, that he still uses till this day.
