A life tailored around clothes


Edgar Pomeroy is a tailor based in Atlanta, Georgia. His clients include Fortune 500 executives all over the US.

As a child growing up in nearby Savannah, a historic Southern town near the Atlantic ocean, he found his love for clothing by watching his father get dressed every morning. Mr Pomeroy was given his first suit at the age of eight.

In this First Person account, Mr Pomeroy talks to the BBC's Franz Strasser about what it takes to make the perfect suit for men who already own so many.
