Bespoke Apprentice Website

By Colin on 10th May, 2016


We are pleased to be part of which officially went live yesterday. The website has been developed to provide a platform for young tailors and cutters in UK companies to share experiences, display exhibition work and to provide information to anyone considering a career in the industry.

It was a great opportunity for our apprentice cutters, Max and Matthew and apprentice makers Finnan, Liberty, Emily and Ashleigh to get involved and share their stories. All our apprentices are on a long but fulfilling journey learning invaluable skills from experienced mentors, and we are very proud of how far they have come.

We often get young people contacting the shop to ask for advice about how to get into the bespoke industry, the website provides information on training, the processes involved and required skills. Learn more about colleges, careers, past events and what life is like for the new generation of tailors and cutters working on Savile Row and in The City.

Thanks to the CAPITB trust and all others who made the website possible. If you are one of those who wants to know more about becoming a bespoke tailoring apprentice or you are interested in reading the apprentices stories please visit the website here.
