Never Mind the Quality, Feel the Width
1967 - 1971
Manny Cohen (John Bluthal) and Patrick Kellyn (Joe Lynch) are partners in a tailoring business in the East End of London. Manny is Jewish, while Patrick is an Irish Roman Catholic. The two struggle to reconcile their differences while trying to earn a decent living. Father Ryan (Eamon Kelly) and Rabbi Levy (Cyril Shaps) are usually on hand to act as referees and to offer lots of unwanted advice.
