I work at Anderson and Sheppard as an apprentice coat cutter. I’ve been there for just under two and a half years.
How did you get into bespoke?
From a young age I developed a strong interest in the details that come together to make true style. As a child I was fascinated by watching my dad tie a particular tie knot, and the way he dressed for work.
What do you like about Savile Row?
I love the sense of history – the knowledge that the world’s most stylish men have graced these pavements.
Describe your style
My style is fairly reserved and conservative. I prefer my cut to be typical Anderson and Sheppard: a fuller chest and gentle shape, though with a slightly slimmer leg. I like simplicity; a single-breasted grey or blue suit with a white shirt and a dark tie is what you will find me in most of the time.
What’s your favourite style aspect of a suit?
What’s your favourite cloth and why?
What’s your favourite piece of tailoring you own?
My grey flannel suit.
What tailoring are you going to make yourself next?
This is a tough one, but probably a single-breasted navy hopsack in a 12/13oz weight. The detail of the weave has more interest than a typical serge and it hangs beautifully.
What’s your favourite accessory?
I have a beautiful pair of Trickers penny loafers that come out on special occasions. The colour is described as espresso and is a wonderful shade.
What do you wear at the weekend?
I lead a pretty active lifestyle outside of work and I tend to be fairly casual: a pair of vintage Levi’s, some Superga 1705’s, a plain t-shirt and my wool baseball jacket from House of Billiam.
What designer brands do you like?
I particularly like brands such as APC and Our Legacy who work with elements such as design and cloth, found in traditional tailoring, for a modern audience.
What high street brands do you like?
I think Uniqlo is good, particularly for knitwear. There is a really good choice of colours, and the prices are very accessible.
What’s top of your clothing wish list?
A classic Burberry trench coat for Spring and a WM J Mills cargo bag.
What blogs or websites do you read?
Permanent Style, The Selby and The Sartorialist.
