Encouraged by his grandparents and Aunty, David Shane Moore learned to sew at a young age 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/ Liverpool and Savile Row London.
David then went on to train as a tailor and gained a wealth of understanding and new skills in the tailoring trade, and eventually took over the family’s 55-year-old business in 2003.
The Village Tailors is founded on traditional family-honed skills dating back over 55 years.
In 2007 David relocated The Village Tailors to Hawarden, 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 London 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.
Over time The Village Tailors extended its reach by opening branches in St Asaph and Mostyn.
These days you’ll see we are busy making bespoke mens and ladies suits, as well as shirts, wedding dresses, and mother of the bride outfits.
