I was saddened by the news that Malcolm Heard of Preston & Maurice Tailors passed away yesterday.
Malcolm was one of New Zealand’s only Savile Row trained tailors and plied his craft for a great number of years in High Street.
Still working up until his death he was an expert on how a suit should be made and the importance of front balance, a lesson he gave me one day at least 15 years ago from his very messy and slightly dusty workroom.

We were lucky enough to feature in a program that recently screened with him.
