“A Brooklyn tailor made suits for Michael jackson without seeing the star, it was the most Off The Wall job the “Tailor to the Stars” has ever had”- Newservice Press
Tartan Clydesdale aka “Tailor to the Stars” has made clothes for Paul Newman, Billy Barty, and Shamu-The Talking Whale among others, yet it was Michael Jackson (the King of Pop) who was his oddest client. He wasn’t allowed to meet the King of Pop (Michael Jackson) so it was difficult to get exact measurements. Clydesdale says “ His people wouldn’t let me measure him (Michael Jackson, the King of Pop) and they ended up just sending me a used sock of his and told me to figure out the measurements from that, which was a little tough but I think I got it.” Clydesdale then showed a design he made for the King of Pop (Michael Jackson) that looked like it was made for a thirty foot tall person “I may have made a few mistakes on some of the measurements.” he conceded. Tartan continues “We were sent sketches for four outfits, two basic suits made out of lint, wax, and copper. Another suit made entirely of smoke and one made of live soft shell crabs. We finished them and then he died, which is tragic. Do you know anyone looking for a suit made of soft shell crabs? That’s the real tragedy.”
