How to make a Savile Row Suit (Part 1) – with Anderson & Sheppard | FASHION AS DESIGN

Follow the making of a bespoke three-piece suit in the style of Savile Row at the helm of one of the best British tailors, Anderson & Sheppard. – Behind a drawn curtain, a master cutter takes an initial series of 27 measurements: 20 for the jacket, 7 for the trousers. From these measurements, the cutter fashions a pattern in heavy brown paper. At the cutter’s table, the cloth is cut in using heavy shears, and the many pieces of fabric are rolled for each garment into tiny packages, which await the tailors.

Being an apprentice on Savile Row is great fun. There''s people come in everyday, you meet different people, different things to do, and it''s just a different job to what most people know or do and not many people know too much about it so it''s great to learn the trade as well, that you can keep with you for the rest of your life.

I think it''s really important to train the youngsters. We get lots of enquiries and we fortunately get to choose the best then teach them how to cut and how to make the best clothes that they possibly can. It''s more an art form than just putting a suit on somebody''s back, we have to make sure it''s the best it can possibly be.
