Savile Row Tailor

At Souster & Hicks there are three bespoke tailoring options:

With many years of experience, the Sousters (Geoff, Scott & Wes Souster) have personally hand drafted, cut and fitted over 30,000 bespoke suits between them. The handmade bespoke suit service is known to be on par with the best bespoke tailors in the world and is very competitively priced.

Made to Measure

Using state of the art tailoring methods you have two choices for a made to measure suit.

Platinum label mens suits

Platinum label

is a fully canvassed construction that’s made in Italy, ideal for the person that prefers and appreciates the lighter weight softer feel. These suits feature some hand tailoring and are impeccably made.

Black label mens suits

Black label

is a half canvassed construction. Should you not have had a suit tailored before this will give you a great insight into the bespoke tailoring world, and you’re able to create a made to measure suit that fits, feels and looks better than anything off the peg. These entry level made to measure suits start from £750.

Our Tailoring History

Over the years we have become one of the most well-known and respected bespoke tailors outside of London’s Savile Row. In 1988 we were the very first bespoke tailors to feature on the BBC programme “The Clothes Show”. In the same year Geoff was elected as the National President of the Federation of Merchant Tailors by his Savile Row peers, making him the youngest bespoke tailor ever to hold this prestigious office.

Following in the family name both of the Souster sons, Scott and Wes, work in the business, sewing, drafting, cutting and designing. They’re now able to continue the future of the Souster name within bespoke tailoring.

What is bespoke tailoring?

Bespoke tailoring is when a suit or other type of clothing is created for a person, based on their individual body measurements and preferences. These preferences can include materials, specific button hole colours, types of lapel and lining options. A true bespoke tailor makes a suit that is crafted and sculpted around a man or woman’s body shape, spending many, many hours created a stunning looking suit. A great bespoke suit should almost feel like it’s not there and will make the person wearing it feel a million dollars!

What’s behind the word ‘Bespoke’?

It comes the verb ‘bespeak’, i.e. speaking for something. Its use in fashion has been mainly linked to men’s suits, although recent years have seen the term applied to women’s clothing too. Bespoke suits, shirts and jeans contrast with factory produced, off the shelf clothing that is found across our high streets. Once you’ve worn a bespoke suit and seen the quality of both fit and fabrics, it’s very difficult to go back to a ready to wear suit.
