ABSTRACT
The article features Jack Taylor, the master tailor who dresses Hollywood stars in the Beverly Hills, California shop he opened in 1957. Taylor considers Frank Sinatra, Jack Lemmon and Charles Bronson among his best clients. Taylor opted to keep making bespoke suits just the way his shop makes jackets and slacks. He supervises a staff of tailors as they create his signature suits. Taylor still dresses Hollywood types from the old school such as Art Linkletter and Dennis Farina.
