UNIQUE IN ENGLAND
In 2006 Lutwyche rescued the last remaining luxury tailored-clothing workshop (which dates back to the 1930s) in England.
Since then, it has been re-established as a world-leading workshop and Lutwyche has become an internationally established brand with flagship premises in London and New York as well as being carried by Saks Fifth Avenue across America and Canada.
THE HEART OF BRITISH TAILORING
The workshop not only makes for the Lutwyche brand but also makes clothing for many of the stalwarts of Savile Row as well as world renowned luxury British fashion houses.
At the heart of Lutwyche is integrity and supporting the age old trade of English tailoring is of the upmost importance.
A NEW GENERATION
When Lutwyche acquired the workshop, the highly skilled artisans constituted an aging workforce. Their skills need to be passed to a new generation, so the Tony Lutwyche Academy was born
Due to the noticeable decline in new talent entering the industry, Academy schemes are an incredibly important part of the tailoring world.
Tony Lutwyche Academy Collection
Whilst teaching the next generation of Lutwyche tailors, the Academy has created a collection of outstanding ready-to-wear pieces.
Each suit made by the Academy is checked thoroughly by the experienced cutters and tailors as well as the quality control team before being made available to purchase.
The Future of Made in England
By purchasing an Academy suit, you are supporting the next generation of skilled artisan workers.
You are helping to honour heritage and continue the legacy that has been built over hundreds of years.
The Collection: How it Works
The collection is available to browse through by size, colour and pattern online. Once you have selected a piece you like you can make an appointment in our flagships in London or New York or the workshop in Crewe or, by arrangement, one of our team can visit you in London or New York. You will then be measured to ensure the right sizing and then the sleeves and trousers will be finished off to the correct length in the workshop. The suit will be ready within 7 days.
