Companion satires on the contrasts between English and French tailors. The English tailor is a small, anxious, shabby individual. He holds an extensive pattern book and has a tape measure protruding from his pocket. However, the fashionably dressed French tailor minces along, grinning ingratiatingly, holding a large muff and an umbrella under his arm. BM 4748 & 4749.
