Since the firm’s inception in 1906, Anderson & Sheppard’s mission has been simple, focused and immutable: to be the tailor of choice for men who wish to dress in comfortable, understated elegance. For well over 100 years, we’ve stayed true to that mission, crafting bespoke clothing for some of the world’s most notable men in business, government and the arts. Should you decide to honour us with your business, be assured that you would receive the selfsame quality and attention they did. The following sections will introduce you to some of today’s Anderson & Sheppard team members, many of whom would be involved in creating your bespoke garments.
Anderson & Sheppard has a team of over 60 loyal staff, each committed to his or her chosen field of front of house, cutting or tailoring. The exacting particulars of our house style and practices mean that we tend to train and grow our team from within, ensuring a continuity of tradition, precision and pride in our craft—principles to which we have been steadfastly committed since we first opened our doors.
