E Tautz : Patrick Grant

E. Tautz was founded in 1867 by Edward Tautz. In 1968, E. Tautz was incorporated into Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons. Headed by creative director Patrick Grant, E. Tautz was re-branded in 2009 and launched as a ready to wear label to wide critical acclaim. 
Tautz tweed is woven in the Outer Hebrides and according to Tautz folklore the knitwear is knitted by eight grannies in Wales. 
Modern dynamic design is blended with quality classic fabrics and Savile Row tailoring.
Patrick Grant is from Edinburgh and trained in Leeds and Oxford he has a passion about menswear and has been known to state that 'the state of British menswear made him want to cry'.
Excitingly for Scotland the company is moving to the Isle of Harris in 2013 and making tentative steps into womanswear.
