Description


This book documents the growth of the tailoring industry in Leeds from remarkably small beginnings in the mid-nineteenth century. Developments in manufacturing and innovations in retailing practices brought spectacular success, but beginning in the 1960s, the industry suffered an equally dramatic decline caused by managerial failure to invest in human resources and by competition from cheap imports.
