My highest paying customer is a Nigerian –Queen Elizabeth’s tailor

Shirt maker and owner of Grosvenor Shirts Limited, Karl Dunkley, was recently awarded the Royal Warrant by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. This makes him the Queen’s official tailor.
In a recent interview with a popular magazine,he disclosed thus:

 " We start with a range of classic shirts but increasingly we become more uptown, more interesting and more unique. We first of all start about a year ahead with designing of the clothes. Then we make a whole range of a collection – very limited edition. So there would only be 10 to 12 shirts designed for only one store and potentially they could be the only 12 in the world because they could just be uniquely made for that store"

 "Our shirts retail from about £95 to £140 (about N23,000 to N33,500 per shirt) , so they tend to be at a high level."

"My highest paying customer is a Nigerian.As an individual,he spends more than any other single customer...but I wont tell you who he is"
