Douglas Millings was a defining tailor of the 1960s the man who dressed the Beatles. Josh Sims meets his son a chip off the old block. Arnold "Dougie" Millings (30 July 1913, in Manchester 20 September 2001, in London) was a London-based tailor known as "the Beatles' tailor".
Millings' shop was located on 63 Old Compton Street in Soho and began designing for British pop stars such as Cliff Richard, Tommy Steele, and Adam Faith in the early 1960s and made the collarless suits the Beatles wore at the height of Beatlemania in 1963 (inspired by Pierre Cardin) as well as their stage suits for the movie Help! Millings made more than 500 outfits for the band.A quote from Gordon Millings, Epstein told dad he needed a look that made the Beatles look like a modern group, rather than the rocknroll leather jacket look theyd had for their time in Hamburg, Millings recalls. Dad had no idea who Epstein was and, of course, at that point nobody had heard of the Beatles. It was the kind of thing that the like of Pierre Cardin was doing at the time, too. So thats what he came up with, these jackets with half-inch braiding on the edges, flared cuffs and a three pearl button-fastening, and tight, flat-fronted trousers with no pockets to keep the lines lean and because Epstein said he didnt want the band members to have pockets to put their hands in.
