Team

The Anderson & Sheppard team comprises of over thirty loyal staff, each committed to their chosen field of front of house, cutting or tailoring. The exacting particulars of our house style and practices means that we tend to train and grow our staff from within, ensuring a continuity of tradition and precision, as well as pride that has remained virtually unchanged since the firm’s inception in 1906.

Our senior directors share over 100 years of experience at Anderson & Sheppard between them. Colin Heywood, the firm’s Managing Director, began his career with the company in 1990. He oversees the front shop team of William Lo, Martin Crawford and accounts clerk/oracle, Stuart Gymer.

Our cutting team has collectively dedicated over a century and a half of experience to our bespoke customers, imparting their skills on to our undercutters and apprentices, securing the continuity and quality of our tailoring.

Danny Hall, Head Cutter and Master Tailor, followed his uncle into the trade and trained at Anderson & Sheppard as a coat maker before undertaking his coat cutting instruction from Mr Pitt. He has served the company for 30 years and is supported in the coats’ department by Senior Cutters, Leslie Hayes and Leon Powell and apprentices, Matthew and Max.  

John Malone joined the firm over four decades ago and manages the trouser department. He trained and developed Senior Cutter, Oliver Spencer, who in turn now mentors his own apprentice, Samuel Labone.

Our tailoring workshops host our team of over 40 coat makers, trouser makers, alteration tailors, finishers and apprentices, all of whom work exclusively for the company. Anderson & Sheppard is also one of very few bespoke tailoring houses to employ a full time trimmer. Michael Bisson ensures that every garment we produce has the perfect combination of component pieces.

 

Colin joined the firm in 1990 and is now Managing Director. He travels to the United States with our Head Cutters twice a year to see customers.
Danny Hall is one of the most senior staff members, having been at Anderson and Sheppard for twenty nine years. He is a coat cutter but also has over 6 years experience in making coats.
