  • mhm So I had a great day today because in my hands, I got some new suits from Mr john Kent, who is the Savile Row tailor?

  • Who is the guy that has made me infamous, I guess because of these suits that appeared all over London and on the billboards, etcetera.

  • And john, he's just a gem of a man.

  • He's got to be in his late seventies or early eighties, uh, kind of an east end geezer who became one of the best tailors in Savile Row.

  • Uh, he has a royal warrant from his uh, majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh, the late prince Philip again.

  • Um, he rest in peace and uh, he always used to tell me great stories about tailoring out Sean Connery or bing Crosby and today we went over there and did a bit of a photo shoot for a special suit that john is making for me, that we're gonna be doing a whole article about and it was just great to see him.

  • He's actually been a guest on London Rio.

  • I had him in my studio about a year, year and a half ago and got his whole story.

  • And the reason I'm smiling is because john represents everything I love about London.

  • He is a man whose craft is in his D.

  • N.

  • A.

  • And it's the DNA of London that's in his craft and he's one of these business owners that we're gonna lose if we're not careful about what we do with this economy and we're not just losing a business here or a business there were losing the very D.

  • N.

  • A.

  • Of this incredible, incredible city and the knowledge john has just can't be replicated.

  • You can't get it at some chain store next week.

  • It has to be held and cherished and we do that by protecting our most valuable asset the economy of London.

  • And that's why I go on and on and on about me wanting to rebuild the economy.

  • That's why I've created things like the congestion charge holiday and business rates going to zero to save people like john Kent who is struggling alongside with every other business in the west end in London to make it through this lockdown struggling, which is why I try to order as many suits as possible during this lockdown Because I want to keep people like John Kent in business and I also want to bring him 20 million people when we do our great celebration in August.

  • So he can just sell more suits and show the world that London leads the world when it comes to our fashion and everything else we do.

  • And so it was great to see john today, I did a short video, You can watch it on some of my channels.

  • He is an absolute gem.

  • I love john, I love him like a father.

  • And um, we built this relationship up over the past couple of years of me just being a customer and um, I just treasure him for everything he embodies.

  • And he pulled me aside today and said, brian, I see what you're doing and I see you going all out and I just appreciate you so much.

  • He said, I tell all my friends and the people, I stopped, I said, this young man, he means well and he wants what's best for London and he said, brian, you gotta get this guy out of office.

  • He said, he's killing our city.

  • He's just killing our city.

  • And I said, john, that's exactly what we're doing.

  • That's what I dedicated my life to do this past six months and that's what's in our manifesto.

  • I showed john the manifesto today.

  • He loved it.

  • And so it's been a wonderful day.

  • My team was there as well.

  • And they just loved being around john and uh just someone who's uh really, they're just, there's so much into their craft that it becomes almost who they are and that's their contribution to the world.

  • And um I love people that serve and that's what john does.

  • He serves the world through his work, his craft, his passion.

  • And you would have thought today was the first suit he made for me in his life and he treats each suit like the first suit.

  • And I think we can learn so much from this man.

  • So john if you're watching this, God bless you sir, uh and please, I got a lot more suits I need.

  • So please stay around, we're going to get this economy back on track.

  • We're gonna get you booming with business and the world will know that this is the great city, We lead the world in fashion and that you are one of the many, many great assets and great business owners that make this city the best in the world.

  • And I'm gonna make it my mission in life to make sure that everyone knows these things.

  • So thank you, john God bless you.

  • God bless everybody.

  • And um, yeah, just so much appreciate everything that you do.

  • Let's take London in a new direction on May six.

  • Let's make it happen.
