The new – distinctly up-market – logo of Nathan Palmer Bespoke Tailoring is on the new  fitting room frontage at Royal Buildings, Stanwell Road

The Penarth based – but internationally known –  gentlemen’s tailor Nathan Palmer has  now officially opened his exclusive new fitting rooms in Stanwell Road – across the road from Penarth Town Council’s HQ at West House.

The lavish finish of the frontage – in Royal Buildings – brings a new and distinctly up-market tone to the Stanwell shopping area.

Nathan Palmer and his family moved to Penarth to live seven years ago after he’d  enjoyed a distinguished athletic career – representing Great Britain in the 110 metre hurdles and even beating  the record set by fellow Penarth sports star Colin Jackson . Mr Palmer also played  on the wing for various Welsh rugby clubs including Newport Gwent Dragons and travelled the world on the IRB circuit with the Welsh Sevens team.

As a rugby player Mr Palmer says he always found it difficult to find clothes that fitted him well and -” took it upon himself”  to study the science, technology and craft skills of designing and tailoring – gaining a BA honours degree in fashion in the process and  perfecting the elusive art of creating bespoke suits that are made to fit.

All his garments are hand-cut and hand-made in Penarth – a process which means precisely making and then assembling at least 30 different components of each suit;  a task which takes more than  80 hours of intensive labour.

Many distinguished showbusiness names now order their suits not from Savile Row, but from Penarth. Amongst his customers are said to be chat-show host Grahame Norton , international musicians Jason Derulo, Tinie Tempah, television personalities Mario Falcone and Charlie Simms and a large and growing retinue of famous sports stars.

    I miss Holders. Don’t think I’m in the £3k territory for a bespoke suit. Good luck though.

  5. snoggerdog says:

    do sports direct need to be worried?

  6. Mark Foster says:

    Would men in Penarth really pay £2,000 to walk around dressed like Graham Norton, Mario Falcone or Charlie Simms of the Only Way Is Essex or Tinie Tempah aka the rapper Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu?

    • Victor Y says:

      Clearly the shop is not exclusively for those who live in Penarth, as the list of existing customers proves, and no one is forcing you to shop there Mark, so what’s your problem?

    • Rubss says:

      Al the best Nathan, your a lovely person and an amazing tailor and you have worked so hard, can’t wait to pop in!!!
      I would certainly shop there! Or if even we need something sewn/hemmed/stitched etc Nathan is your man.

  7. Paul says:
