John Ferguson, a Coventry bespoke tailor, who specialises in suits for gamekeepers has saved a men's outfitter's from closure. Mr Ferguson is a Lancastrian, aged 57 and came to Coventry to work after the war because he had married a Coventry Girl. He was apprenticed in a tailor's shop in Wigan and joined Harold Freedman's tailoring business in Coventry 36 years ago and became the owner in 1968. I became established providing suits for estate workers such as chauffers or gamekeepers, who needed a tailored suit as a uniform for their job," he said. He has taken over A. Morley's of Far gosford Street, the oldest men's outfitters shop in the city. It will mean a move just down the road from number 60 to 67. Morley's was established in 1910 and was run for 54 years by Annie Morley who died in her 80s. 18th February 1983"
