When he left

Mr. Alexandre used to work here, from 1962 until he died in 2016.

From the street, looking through the window, it doesn’t look like this place is abandoned. He might come back. Someone might come back for their bespoke suit.

If you read Portuguese, please head to Blog dos Alfaiates, Mr. Alexandre’s story is there along with other stories about other masters of elegance.

  1. Mysterious story! I found myself wondering why there was a baseball bat lying on the floor. Did Mr Alexandre die of natural causes or did that pesky baseball bat have anything to do with it??? Really liked this, thanks 🙂

    1. The current state of the shop / atelier is a complete mystery; there’s a lot I don’t understand about the objects and the way they are placed. Mr. Alexandre did die of natural causes; I’m glad the bat was not involved . Thank you for stopping by 🙂
