The English Drape is a cut that enables many active rakes, like those who are photographers and filmmakers, to work. Unique to Anderson & Sheppard, it’s not a military cut but a civilian cut. It was developed by Frederick Scholte, the Dutchman who was the Duke of Windsor’s cutter in London. Scholte was working in Savile Row and trained Per Anderson, who was active before 1906 and then joined with Mr Sheppard to create this venerable company.
