James Shipton Bespoke is sharing premises with Nota Bene Jewellers in a new venture, in Hermitage Parade, off High Street.

The two businesses are run by James Shipton and Nikki Blowers, respectively.

Mr Shipton, 37, a married father of two, from Weybridge, has a lengthy career of personal tailoring behind him.

Mr Shipton said: "Whatever you go away with, nobody else has anything quite like it. I make everything specifically for them.

"I sell cashmere sweaters, but you can pick the size and colour. Even with the shoes, you can pick your own soles."

Nota Bene sells bespoke pieces of jewellery.
