Unlike Huntsman, Anderson & Sheppard do not produce ready-to-wear or made-to-measure garments. Concerned with easy movement and a natural body line, the cutters and pattern makers at A&S make the garment to fit the client. There is a greater sense of exclusivity, with a private consultation/fitting, and garments made to the style which you request. Much of the garment is hand sewn and padded, with the need to maintain the fluidity of drape and minimisation of seams. The silhouette is different to Huntsman with a softer shoulder (being cut slightly on the bias) and subtle definition on the waist. The aestheic is more one of elegance and classic masculine tailoring.
