„Good dressing is like having a love affair with your clothes, playing with patterns and teasing the colours into a harmonious relationship. „

Unique in the area, as the only menswear producer and retailer owned and managed by a London trained tailor, Simon Skottowe Ltd. produces fine bespoke pieces, develops his private label collections and retails an eclectic selection of some of the finest menswear brands from all around Europe.
Simon’s interest in sewing started early, when he was 7 years old, and quickly became an obsession. Textiles of all sorts held a fascination and he was instinctively drawn towards beautiful clothes. While studying for a Fashion Degree his interest became focused on tailored menswear and that has been his career choice for the last 30 years.
