Savile Row’s Lee Marsh launches Online Jacket Tailoring Course April 2021

Accomplished Savile Row tailor Lee Marsh, based in Nottingham, is proud to announce the launch of his fully online jacket tailoring course.  Marsh’s first video series, Making a Bespoke Blazer, will launch on April 1. Later this year, a series on waistcoat making is also planned.

With over twenty years of experience at the heart of London fashion, Marsh has developed this educational service with the goal of providing those looking for apprenticeships and career in the trade with the best training possible.

Through a combination of instructional videos and one-to-one Zoom sessions, the course seeks to improve access to the industry and address the rate at which tailoring apprentices obtain permanent roles.  At present only a few, 6 in 40, get a permanent role per year.

The twelve-part video series will explain the step-by-step process of bespoke jacket making in a detail never seen before. Viewers will learn how to pattern match, cut, make and sew patch pockets, and much more. The private Zoom lessons, meanwhile, will offer more personalised help to those that desire it. Whether they are looking for assistance with particular skills or styles, or would like to benefit from Marsh’s inside knowledge of the industry, he is happy to oblige.

Lee Marsh had this to say about the course:

“There is a lack of information available on bespoke jacket making. In my experience, unless you are one of the lucky few to get an opportunity to work on Savile Row or at any other tailoring house, there are only a few good courses you can attend and be trained by a Savile Row tailor.

“Whether they are jacket-making beginners or early in their career, I know that this course will help a lot of people who want to improve their knowledge of tailoring. This makes it so much more accessible for everyone.”

The course

Learn how to pattern match when cutting out Jacket with your pattern.

How to cut make and sew patch pockets, outbreast welt, collar and sleeve matching on checks.

How to deal with plain cloth.

Private Zoom lessons via 2 way camera system, for students that need extra classes on particular areas or different styles.

Additional private lessons, students can benefit from inside knowledge on how to get into the industry or set up their own bespoke brand.

“Lee Marsh is a refreshing, creative and experienced tailor who is passionate, hardworking and willing to share his wealth of experience with the next generation of tailors.”  Lee Dawson BEM, Managing Director, Samuel Brothers (St Paul’s) Ltd

“Learning from Lee was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had. He taught me the most prestigious tailoring techniques throughout my apprenticeship, and always gave me the time I needed to learn them, which has enabled me to become a coatmaker working for multiple houses on Savile Row. I couldn’t be more thankful”  said Hannah Cooper, jacket maker at Norton & Sons, 16 Savile Row

“Working and learning with Lee is a great experience. He is devoted to his students, giving them all his time and expertise. His knowledge has truly had a positive impact on my journey in bespoke tailoring” said Adam Lester, online student, USA/Canada
