We’ve both always had a passion for suits, which became more than just an interest after I had a number of fantastic quality fine woollen suits made whilst doing voluntary work in Nepal in 2005.
I remained friends with the tailoring family who made my first suits from Nepal and on returning to the UK, I met up with old schoolfriend David; together we decided to use our engineering and software backgrounds to simplify tailoring and bring back the idea of a local tailor for everyone. We trialled the idea of A Suit That Fits at Hampstead market and sold our first two suits within twenty minutes of opening. This was a clear sign that we had a viable business idea, so we then worked through the night to create a simple website that was just about able to make one of our uniquely customised suits. We rented our first studio near Liverpool Street Station using money loaned on a credit card, and David continued to work two jobs for the first six months to help get us started.
7 years after starting, A Suit That Fits has created over 50,000 bespoke garments and spans 34 studios, across the UK, Ireland and America, and we’re thrilled and very proud to be part of a fantastic and growing team of wonderful people inEurope, America and in Nepal.
It is all thanks to you, our wonderful customers, for your ongoing support and custom.
