William Shearer

William Shearer, Tailor, 52, Gordon Street.

    Amongst the many notable tailors in Glasgow, Mr. William Shearer of the above address has for many years occupied a position of great pre-eminence. Established over thirteen years ago, the business was for some time carried on under the title of Farquhar and Shearer, when subsequently Mr. Shearer acquired the sole proprietorship.

    The premises consist of a most attractive shop and show-rooms handsomely fitted up, together with spacious workrooms, and warehouse. Each department of the establishment is under a specially qualified foreman. The showrooms are filled with a choice selection of goods of the finest quality and the most recent patterns. The establishment is patronised by the elite of Glasgow and its vicinity, Mr. Shearer numbering amongst his clients many eminent merchants, bankers, and distinguished citizens.

    Mr. Shearer possesses the advantage of long and thorough practical experience, and by his well-known integrity, commendable judgment, and spirited enterprise has gained the patronage of a very large and influential connection.
