Making Savile Row Fun and Effortless For Busy Professional Men.

ABOUT ALEXANDRA WOOD

As the first female Savile Row tailor to design, tailor, and offer style expertise to busy professionals, Alexandra Wood has added a much needed modern twist to what’s often deemed a stuffy, traditional environment. With features in elite publications like GQ, Tatler, Forbes, and Square Mile, she has become the go to for bespoke tailoring and style direction for the discerning professional man.

Finding tailoring that not only fits, but that looks good can be tedious. We ensure it’s fun and enjoyable.

The perception of traditional tailoring often comes across as elitist, reserved for the upper echelons, and devoid of personal touch. But at Alexandra Wood, we challenge these conventions. We treat you like a King, but don’t expect you to be one.

“Voted one of the best Savile Row Tailors 2024 “Looking for a bespoke suit exactly the way you want it? Since 2007, that has been Alexandra Wood’s mission” to find out what the customer wants, and build upon it. While respectful of Savile Row, Alexandra Wood prides itself on its open-mindedness.”

”He was easily the best-dressed man in the room (once dubbed “GQ Man” by the Guardian). Even with his plate overloaded from the buffet, Umunna was looking good. Partly it is the way he carries himself – calm, relaxed, supremely confident – but also it is those bespoke suits he wears from Alexandra Wood on Savile Row.” Tony Parsons, GQ

”Her bespoke pieces have been worn by politicians, actors and film directors, as well as being named ‘’Tailor of the 21st Century’’ by GQ. This success has been hard won and thanks to 13 years experience. Alexandra has plenty of wisdom to share on the art of navigating a male-dominated environment and finding success on your own terms.”

”Alexandra isn’t your usual tailor. For one, she’s a woman – one of the first on Savile Row, and still something of a rarity on the storied street. Driven by a desire to make the world of men’s tailoring more personal and less intimidating, Alexandra began her tailoring career in womenswear, Alexandra quickly found she had a hidden talent for mens tailoring.”

SHOPPING TRIPS WITH MY DAD

My Dad and I would shop together from primary school age. He’d set me a budget each season and encourage me to purchase investment pieces. It was our time to bond and rather than concentrate on my own purchases, I would encourage him to buy expensive quality clothing and shoes that I thought would look cool on him.


These moments were about bonding, and they ignited my absolute love for men’s design and transformation. These days he’s seen wearing head to toe AW… 

THE AW BACK STORY

After a few years working in luxury retail stores; such as Harvey Nichols and Harrods, I eventually started my career in women’s tailoring at the age of 21 at Shanghai Tang, where I was the youngest and first female bespoke manager ever hired there which was thrilling. I redesigned their entire bespoke collection, which was featured in Hello magazine. I was lucky enough to have designed a collection for a private jet company, Fascinating Aida, Pianist Wu Qian along with members of the Royal family.

However, I quickly turned my eye to men’s tailoring after a female client requested that I make something for her husband. This mixed with my love of my shopping trips with my Dad made it all make perfect sense. From then on I loved making men look dare I say – Sexier!

I enjoy the simplicity of a man’s wardrobe, yet there’s so much scope for an innovative, classic and classy wardrobe that I still feel is very unexplored.

WHAT MAKES AW DIFFERENT?

I love making men feel good inside and out.

Hearing our clients stories and what’s important to them all forms important information about how I choose to design for our clients. Tailoring has the capability of transforming how men look and feel and is massively under-utilised. It’s only when they know the difference that they can truly understand and appreciate it.

I also wanted to create an experience, a feeling and energy that I felt lacked from Savile Row tailoring as we know it. It’s prehistorically been hierarchical, snooty and intimidating.

My grandparents were very wealthy, and had two homes; one of which was on Jermyn street. They’d take us to the Waldorf for dinners and shop at luxury boutiques, yet I always felt deeply uncomfortable because they were intimidating which took any enjoyment out of any experience. All of these memories formed my beliefs about how I wanted my business to be run.

Now, clients leave our design home saying- “That was the best fun they’ve had spending so much money.” That to me is a total joy. I created a tagline ‘Be seen the way you deserve’ which has multiple layers of meaning. Looking good is both an inside and outside job and I want our clients to feel liberated, energised and to look incredible.

WHY BUSY PROFESSIONAL MEN?

My very first client was a Barrister who is now a KC. From this point onwards, I designed sharp suits for Chuka Umunna who landed on GQ’s best dressed list twice, which is a first for a politician. With so much PR around his image, I quickly became the go to for successful men to look ‘more’. 

Confidence is sexy and attractive and tailoring is the perfect form of clothing to exude this. When done well of course!

I now design bespoke tailoring and offer style direction for the man who has no time or inclination to place the time into finding clothes that fit, look good all whilst making it effortless and enjoyable. I utilise all of my talents to steer professional men into looking as successful they deserve to be.
