Steven Hitchcock is a Savile Row Tailor making bespoke, custom, hand made suits in London, England.
Company description Experienced I have been in the Savile Row bespoke tailoring trade for over 25 years now, creating the finest menswear and ladies wear tailored suits. I served a full apprenticeship at Anderson and Sheppard where I was comprehensibly taught the soft tailoring style by my father, John Hitchcock. Unique I personally measure all of my clients and cut the paper patterns and suits myself in the traditional way here in our London shop. My soft tailoring creates soft shoulders, high armholes, unrivalled comfort and a unique stylish look for every individual client. Bespoke Tailoring All of my craftsman are the very finest Savile Row Artisan's you will find and have to meet my exacting standards. I am very proud to say that we stand and fall on our bespoke suits and do not sell any ready to wear or off the peg suits all of my suits are hand made here in London England in the true Savile Row bespoke tradition, with over 50 hours of hand work in every suit.
Steven Hitchcock started in the tailoring trade back in the year 1990 with tailors Anderson and Sheppard. The first four years training as an apprentice coat maker, then another five years learning to cut and fit. Steven Hitchcock was honoured in 1995 when Mr Halsey the Managing Director at that time invited him to join the cutting room. To my knowledge there has been no one else who has gone through this vigorous training. People have been taught to make coats and others have learnt to cut but it is rare to have completed both.
Steven has been in the tailoring trade for 25 years now. He has followed in his fathers, John Hitchcock footsteps in the way he has learnt his craft. John joined Anderson and Sheppard when he was 16 years old and was taught his sewing and cutting skills in the traditional way. He started as an apprentice trouser maker and ended up over 50 years later the head cutter and Managing Director of Anderson and Sheppard and for me the King-Pin of the firm, he retired in August 2014.
