Description

This uses much of the same material as The Road to Fashion, however, it is specifically made to advertise Jackson the Tailor. There are a few scenes and sequences which are different and will be noted. For other specifics, please see entry for The Road To Fashion.

[In 1952 Sir Montague Burton died, and in the following year, in order to provide for the future management of the company, Burton acquired Jackson the Tailor Ltd. Jackson was a much smaller business than Burton and at the time of its acquisition had about fifty shops. At present, however, there are eighty-two Jackson shops. The Jackson directors joined the board of Burton and the chairman of Jackson is now the chairman of the Burton group.]

The film begins with a man and a woman riding in a sports car driving with the top down. "The Road to Fashion" - Different models flash up on the screen in quite unusual outfits, but for those who prefer a suit, there is another option - Jackson suits.

Differing shots from the previous film include:
Different stress tests for the cloth and dye
Tailoring - different people measuring
Cloth selection in warehouse is now done by machines
There are Jackson labels on all of the clothing
The special skills shots have been changed
Export example is to Kenya instead of Paris
There is no dentist present in the employee welfare portion of the film
