13/10/1962: Pratt, Manning and Co of Trinity Street, Cambridge’s oldest bespoke tailoring firm, is to close. It was established in 1865 by Thomas Pratt and acquired by Aid H.T. Wing in 1897. Until the First World War about 80% of the trade was from undergraduates who ordered three or four suits at a time. Today students on grants cannot afford high prices for hand-made clothes and they rely on professional and business men for their trade. Customer’s patterns and records will be transferred to their London office and a cutter will visit Cambridge at regular intervals. (Cam. News)
