The tailor who'll dress Dubya
No designers, no chic styles. A humble Delhi store will take care of Bush's wardrobe, writes Summi Gambhir.india Updated: Mar 01, 2006 14:37 IST
When the President of the United States visits India between March 1 and 3, his sartorial needs will not be met by any couturier.
Rather, Grover Cloth House, a humble store at Khan Market, will take care of his wardrobe.
George W Bush will have a tailor at his disposal 24x7 during his stay at ITC Maurya Sheraton.
Co-ordinated by the US embassy, the designs have already been forwarded, and tailors of the store are working overnight to deliver.
There will also be a notice put up on the 12th floor of the hotel for accompanying officials to avail the service of the tailor, should they choose to.
Established in 1962, the store is run by Yogesh and Ashu Grover with their father.
They claim their clientele consists of ministers, counsellors and ambassadors — particularly diplomats from the UK, the US, Russia and Italy.
The store also did the outfits of Chelsea and Hillary Clinton during their 2000 visit.
