Why buy from The Tudor Tailor

Since 2005, The Tudor Tailor has reinvested all its sales income into new stock and developing new books and products. Our prices are calculated to cover costs (including a team of five part-time specialists) and make a small profit so that we can plan and invest in new projects. There are several new books on 16th century themes on the starting blocks along with The Stuart Tailor, which will concentrate on the years 1604 to 1714.
