Michael Pendlebury is a tailor who's one part of a father and son business in Manchester where he specialises in denim and bespoke suit tailoring.

In his lively city centre shop his customers often bring in garments they have found in thrift shops nearby, always looking for various alterations.

Michael, known locally as The Denim Doctor, started sewing when he was eight years old. Since then, he has graduated from making repairs to his favourite teddy to running the family business.

Michael is passionate about vintage clothing, not only because of its value for money, but also for the rich stories behind every item.
