Since 1906, Savile Row stalwart Anderson & Sheppard has been making suits that are designed specifically for each client, be he the Prince of Wales or fashion royalty like Tom Ford. (The company has also dressed illustrious women, including Marlene Dietrich). With a distinct house style marked by a softly draped chest and naturally sloped shoulders, Anderson & Sheppard still has its master cutters take more than two dozen measurements for each new customer: 27 for the jacket, and seven for the trousers. One of the few things that has changed is its trademark address: In 2005 the shop moved off the Row to Old Burlington Street.
