“Anderson & Sheppard have had a presence in the area since the turn of the last century. They may be over 100 years old, but they blend a century of bespoke tailoring with contemporary touches and perfect detailing. It was perhaps gaining a musty Dickensian air until 2005 when the owner’s daughter, Anda Rowland, breezed through the doors to become the first female principal on Savile Row. It is also an absolute pleasure to watch the exceptional John Hitchcock, head cutter and managing director of the company, in action when you visit.” —Jasper Conran, creative director of the Conran Shop 32 Old Burlington St., 44/(0)20-7734-1420.
