Dege & Skinner has been handcrafting exquisite bespoke clothing for men for more than 150 years...and counting!

Managed by the fifth generation of the Skinner family, Dege & Skinner at number 10 Savile Row is simply bursting at the seams with talented makers of all ages. 

Senior bespoke cutter Nicholas De'Ath cut the pattern for The Royal Lancers military uniform that was shown at the V&A Museum's recent exhibition titled, 'What is Luxury'. 

Produced when two Regiments of the British Army amalgamated in 2015, this stunning uniform will be on display during London Craft Week 2016.

On the ground floor their team of bespoke cutters specialise in the creation of civilian, as well as military clothing and in the brightly-lit workshop underneath the shop, the trouser makers and coat makers can be seen hand-stitching all manner of exquisite bespoke garments before being sent around the world to loyal customers who have sought out Dege & Skinner's fine bespoke tailored clothing for many years. 

Unique to Savile Row, all the bespoke shirt patterns are physically cut at the back of the shop, before being made-up in the basement workshop.
