In 1974 Samuel left school to be a designer, but with limited opportunities available he turned a job in the local clothing factory, Ideal Clothiers, into a spring board to becoming a bespoke tailor.
He worked his way through the various departments the machine rooms, cutting room, assistant to the buyer. Always wanting to progress and learn until he was eventually invited to became assistant designer to a man named John Lewis who was brilliant at his profession and could see the potential in Samuel and his desire to progress.
So he started him on the road to becoming a bespoke tailor, through a tailoring course at the local college run by Bob Cockril who taught Samuel to put his genuine talents into action. Shortly before the factory closed in 1981 Samuel was working for himself from home. He managed to build up a loyal cliental and eventually opened a shop in the high street, Samuels the Tailors in 1988.
Having been in business now for over 35 years Samuel has kept his business unique in the sense that he is the sole tailor and all customers benefit from his knowledge and experience, making clothes that are unique to the individual with an outstanding level of service- all in all the best that you can get.
