NPR interview of Thomas Mahon

Last week Chris Lydon of Public Radio International conducted an radio interview of Savile Row tailor Thomas Mahon. An MP3 file of the 52 minute interview was archived on RadioOpenSource.org and can be downloaded by following the link above.

An interesting interview but Lydon could have conducted a better flowing and more engaging conversation with Mr. Mahon. He spent perhaps too much time with call-ins rather than tapping into the background, experiences and stories of his guest. That's a bit ironic since the reason for his interview is Mahon's use of blogging to converse and engage with potential customers. Nonetheless it is a worthwhile interview to get a better sense of Mahon's approach to tailoring.
