4. Henri Urban
As you might have learned from the previous page dedicated to Claude Rousseau, this tailor had a very talented colleague at Joseph Camps’ workshop. His name is Henri Urbanczyk, shortened to Urban, one of the most talented of his generation.
After a few years at Camps, Urban settled on his own in 1967. He was so details oriented that he even counted the number of stitches on each face of the garment and made his workers do it again if it did not match!
His astonishing work speaks for itself. Look at these garments!
The fishmouth lapel is still there. So is the secret embroidered inner pocket. Have you noticed the slightly different lining cut than Camps’ school?
The suit is undated. The two check jackets are dated 1988.
We hope you liked this article and all these masterpieces from unsung tailoring heroes! We also could have talked about Gilbert Feruch, Cumberland, L. Larsen, Henri Nitlich, Chujko, Paul Portes, A. Rinzler…who all were incredible tailors.
See you soon on Vulpilist, the Sartorial Marketplace!
