Making The Cut With Dixon Anderson
by Hanna Lindon
Contemporary fashion based on classic values, Dixon Anderson’s exquisitely tailored suits are every Groom’s sartorial dream.
Choosing the right outfit has become a rite of passage for Grooms these days – and nothing breathes style like a Made to Measure suit.
That’s where high-end tailoring specialist Dixon Anderson comes in.
Gerry Dixon opened his East Grinstead showroom in December 2016 and his Made to Measure suit and shirt service are already proving to be immensely popular.
“It used to be all about the Bride’s dress, while the Groom was left to make do. Nowadays finding the perfect suit, shirt, tie and pocket square for the Groom and Groomsmen, has become increasingly important” explains Gerry.
The Made to Measure experience is very special, as is wearing the suit and shirt afterwards. Until you’ve worn a suit and/or shirt that genuinely fits you, it’s impossible to know how wonderful that feels.
Walking into the Dixon Anderson new showroom is like discovering a little pocket of London’s West End in East Grinstead. Until now, Gerry has always worked in the West End of London or Mayfair and, over the course of his career, has collaborated with top luxury brands such as Giorgio Armani, Corneliani, Ralph Lauren and, Savile Row Master Tailor, Richard Anderson.
Gerry’s expertise encompasses both classic tailoring and contemporary styling, a combination that translates to the feel of the showroom and to the beautifully made suits.
It’s easy to assume that a bespoke wedding outfit is beyond your price range but many branded off-the-peg suits can be just as expensive or even more expensive and often aren’t as good quality.
Made to Measure prices at Dixon Anderson start from £699 for a 2-piece pure wool suit and £100 for a pure cotton shirt.
“For customers purchasing five or more outfits, we offer a 20% discount,” says Gerry. “That effectively means you receive one suit free. I am also introducing a new and exclusive ‘Made to Order’ service, whereby customers who order five (or more) identical Ready to Wear suits can choose their fabric, linings, stitching and buttons and any number of style options. These suits start at £399 which represents a saving of £300 (compared to Made to Measure) and, over five suits, represents a saving of at least £1,500.
With Gerry’s design and style expertise on hand to help, you can now create a suit and/or a shirt that is beautifully cut, fits you perfectly and is completely unique. It’s the ultimate confidence boost for your big day – and you’ll be left with a classically tailored suit that will last for many more years to come.
