Traditional Deans shop blinds have been produced by our London factory since 1894. The blinds themselves are still made from the tried and tested handmade techniques of a tilted top board to the hardwood box and slotted screws for authentic fixing. However, all metal work is now powder coated, rather than hand painted, which gives it even greater resistance to wear and tear and the consequences of weathering and pollution. These particular awnings at Copperfield Tailors in Moorgate, in the centre of London, have also received very special treatment from our sign writers who have applied branding in genuine Gold Leaf. The application of Gold Leaf is, naturally, more expensive but there is no other way to keep your awning looking as good as the day it was installed for year after year.
The well established menswear shop in the City of London, Copperfields, offer extensive readymade ranges of suits and mix and match outfits. Made to Order suits are available as are ready mades & alterations are undertaken on site. The owners are consummate professionals who radiate enthusiasm for the craft and tradition of fine tailoring. Top service, top quality and a proper ‘old school’ tailor that knows what it’s doing. Alterations can be shortening trousers to basically re-cutting a whole suit bought elsewhere.
Moorgate was a postern in the London Wall originally built by the Romans. It was turned into a gate in the 15th century. Though the gate was demolished in 1762, the name survives as a major street in the City of London. Moorgate is well known as the birthplace of John Keats, one of the most renowned poets of the English Romantic movement. Keats was born in 1795 in the Swan and Hoop Inn at 199 Moorgate, where his father was an ostler. The pub has had its named changed in honour of this and is now known as “The John Keats at Moorgate”. At one time it had also been known as “The Moorgate Coffee House” and “The Moorgate”, located only a few yards from Moorgate station.
