David Shane Moore commenced a life of tailoring at the tender age of seven. Encouraged by his grandparents he learned to sew and spent many hours pedalling away on an industrial Singer sewing machine (which is still used in the business today) making little bags and teddy bears. He soon progressed to making clothes and formalised his early acquired skills training in Fashion & Design at Llandudno College.
David then went on to train as a tailor and gained a wealth of understanding and new skills in the tailoring trade. He worked for a number of well known companies and eventually took over the family’s 45-year-old business in 2006.
The Village Tailors is founded on traditional family-honed skills dating back over 50 years
In 2007 David relocated to Hawarden and opened The Village Tailors, which has grown from strength to strength mainly by word of mouth and on the recommendations of its customers from the Flintshire area, Chester, Manchester and North Wales.
In January 2012 The Village Tailors relocated to a larger shop and in September 2015 it moved to even larger premises, at Kentigern Stables, Rectory Lane, Hawarden, Flintshire, North Wales CH5 3NN.
These days you’ll see we are busy making bespoke mens and ladies suits and shirts, wedding dresses and mother of the bride outfits.
