Since Clerkenwell London opened our tailoring service in 2015 we have had the honour of dressing some of London’s most elegant men. We follow the traditions of Savile Row and dress the individual client, providing made-to-measure suits and shirts that reflect and highlight the personality of the client, enhancing good features and disguising flaws. 

Our lead Tailor, David Newell practised on Savile Row for nearly 10 years and excels in the traditions of the discipline, resulting in him training others to equaling standards.

Made to measure suits

David Newell is well-versed in the traditions of the Savile Row cut; finely waisted with narrow shoulders, and also the more contemporary styles of Richard James, Ozwald Boateng and Mark Powell who are constantly pushing the boundaries of traditional tailoring.  This rich source of inspiration coupled with Italian sartorial influences, gives our suits a multitude of styles, cuts and tricks of the trade to be able to create the perfect suit for every client.

We have an extensive fabric book hand-picked from the finest British and Italian mills. Whatever style you desire for your next suit, David Newell is available to guide you, determining your needs and skillfully interpreting them to create the suit you have in mind.
