“Tailor of the 21st Century.” Tony Parsons, GQ Columnist & Best Selling Author

“She has great flair and style. She is personable and never pushy. She has a great eye as well as technical expertise as a tailor. She does not over-sell. She knows what works for middle aged men. Her Bishop’s Stortford shop is stylish and has a good atmosphere. We have developed a good rapport and I trust her judgement, which is essential. She won’t bullshit me – and I appreciate that!” Jason Cowley, Editor, New Statesman

“I have been using Alexandra for many years. She is excellent, a great balance of the “customer is always right” with some challenge to get me out of comfort zone on my wardrobe.” Adam Freeman, Ex- Partner, Linklaters

“I can only speak in superlatives. Alexandra Wood is sensational. One of the things that sets her apart is the time she takes to talk to you about what you want.

On your first meeting/fitting, she will truly take the time to talk through your style icons, your ambitions and what you’d like to achieve with your appearance. The entire experience is truly bespoke: you never feel like anyone else’s style is being imposed on you, or like you have to try to fit into someone else’s house style. Instead, Alexandra makes sure that the suit is perfectly moulded to you, whilst at the same time offering you her invaluable insight and style guidance. I wouldn’t go to any other tailor – she is (pun intended) absolutely a cut above!” Luka Krsyljanin, Barrister

“I came across Alex via personal referral and as I was coming out of corporate life as a day to day exec and becoming a chairman or NED of fintech and software companies I wanted a change of image. I found her incredibly engaging and easy to chat to and she came up with lots of suggestions and tips. As a result I became more confident wearing fitted shirts, suits, jackets, dinner suits and more casual stuff to give a much more subtle and flattering outline and help me look more modern and less corporate without becoming mutton dressed as lamb so to speak! Discussions and fittings about clothing options for different work and social situations were relaxed and empathetic. Alexandra genuinely wants to find a look that makes you feel your best and most confident self. I recommend her unreservedly.” Scanes Bentley, Company Chairman

“You can’t tailor-make situations in life, but Alexandra can tailor-make you to fit any situation. First class and highly professional, she’ll make you a sharper you.” Thushara Polpiteye, Director at Astute Law

“Fantastic experience and customer service from start to finish. Alexandra really understands how to create a suit the makes you feel as a good suit should. ‘Amazing’.” Danny Crates, Paralympian

“Alex is a pleasure to deal with. Fantastic customer service and top quality products. Alex intuitively understands what styles suit and my husband Ashley is delighted with everything she has made for him. Happy to highly recommend!” Pippa Hall, Investment Manager

Alexandra is an excellent tailor, who lends you her good taste while taking into account what you like and don’t like. The suits and shirts she has made for me were so good, I have been back and ordered more twice! Helier Drage-Smith, Managing Director, Rothschild

I have now had four suits made from Alexander Wood and they are by far the best I have had to date! The attention to detail is exemplary; the cut is flattering and fabrics are some of the best you can buy. She provides great advice on style, colour, shape and texture –all done with smile on her face .

The new shop in Bishops Stortford is sheer magic; tasteful decor, beautiful ambiance and a cafeterie of coffee to add to the shopping experience

P.s I usually let her choose the lining as she has an eye for colour that always looks great! Kevin Morris

“Alexandra made a bespoke Wedding suit for my Groom and it was perfect in every single way. We attended her London and Bishop’s Stortford branches for fittings and both places were extremely accommodating. We highly recommended her services and will definitely look to use again for another special formal occasion. Emma x” Emma & Jon Bolton

“The minute you slip on any of the beautiful jackets or shirts designed and made Alexandra Wood you know right away what you have been missing. My jackets now fit like a glove, they look stylish and make me feel great wearing them. I never stop being thrilled at the lovely compliments I get for Alexandra’s shirts when I wear them. Alexandra has a thoughtful and professional but friendly way of spending time with me, always making sure everything I have is just right and naturally she has a great eye for not only my size, but for what will and then in fact does look great on me.” Chris Barnado, Director of The Wand Company

“The experience at this tailor’s is exceptional. I had Alexandra make me a made to measure suit for my wedding, and I am so pleased with it. Alexandra was excellent in the consultation helping chose fabrics and style to suit me and the wedding. When I tried on the finished suit it was perfect and made me feel $1M. I highly recommend and I will be back again in the future.” Luke Nicholls

“Amazing quality suits that everyone will notice” Stephen Gallagher, Director, Dotmatics

“For his 50th birthday, my husband’s friends all chipped in to buy him a bespoke suit – Pete loves suits but had never had one tailored especially for him. The suit was to be a surprise and when I contacted Alexandra by email, she was enthusiastic about the idea. And I was enthusiastic about the fact that Alexandra was a woman, as there aren’t many on Savile Row!

The day of the first fitting, I brought Pete up to Alexandra’s showroom, which luckily is discreetly marked, so he had no idea where I was taking him. When we arrived, Alexandra had a room set aside with champagne and sweets, so it felt like a celebration. She did not rush us through choosing the fabrics or taking measurements, and we stayed on and chatted with her afterwards – she is a lovely, friendly lady. The suit was completed on time so that Pete could wear it with pride to his 50th birthday party – it was a big hit! If you’re thinking of a special gift for the man in your life, you couldn’t go wrong with a bespoke suit made by the talented Alexandra.” Glenda Richards

“Perfection! Alexandra tailored the three piece wedding suit and tailored shirts for me and my best man. From the beginning, we were made to feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed, unlike in some tailors. Alexandra was patient, polite and understood what we were looking for without overwhelming or complicating things for us. She is clearly very experienced and knowledgeable. The quality of the material and the fit was unlike anything I had worn before and I felt the best I had ever felt in a set of clothes, which was very important on my wedding day. The Bishops Stortford shop is stylish and we never felt rushed there. I’d recommend Alexandra and the team to anybody looking for casual or formal tailoring, they won’t disappoint!” Joel Swift

“I discovered Alex in late 2018 and wish i’d met her sooner! She’s now made a variety of different clothes for me and everything is first class in terms of quality. She’s got a great eye, a very warm and personable approach and is brilliant fun to work with. The ready to wear pieces are very fairly priced compared to higher-end high street designer labels; bespoke pieces are obviously a little more expensive but can’t be faulted in terms of craftsmanship. I own a mixture of both, and Alex is now my first port of call when I need something new or want to create something specific. She’s the perfect blend of expertise and accessibility, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” Stuart Russell

“Superb service and suit to match. After much searching for my wedding suit I came across Alexandra Wood website and was instantly hooked. Once I had met Alexandra for our first consultation any fears I once had were put at ease.
Alex could see my vision and easily put it together so I could imagine the final piece.

Alex produced an amazing 3 piece midnight blue tuxedo for me which looked amazing. I experienced so many compliments on the day. The suit itself was everything I had wished for and the quality was second to none.
I was looking for something slightly different but nothing outrageously bold or flashy. I was also looking for my groomsmen/usher to wear black tuxedo’s so the difference in suits would strike a right balance and compliment my suit. I had a rather large party (10) and all the suits were fantastic. The service went well beyond expectations when on the eve of the wedding Denis urgently arranged alterations to some of my groomsmen suits and even met half way between locations to deliver. This certainly saved the day for 3 of the chaps.
I cannot thank and recommend Alex and her team enough.

I now have the urge for my work suits all to be Alexandra Wood creations.” Chris Hancock
