Effortless and a real pleasure”


Some kind words from our valued clients.

I had used two different tailors in the past, but was in the market for a new contact.   

I had a direct approach from  Laura Gatehouse, and have to say the service is fantastic. The quality of the work is excellent and very detailed, and there have been a wealth of suggestions for finishes, linings, buttons and general tailoring style.   There is a large choice of fabrics to work through. I have found the service to be very fast and efficient for fittings through to the final try on. One big bonus is that the tailor comes to you, which really does help (although it can be dangerous to go shopping in the office, I have found!)

I have taken delivery of four suits, one jacket and one dress, and the finish and quality far exceeds the suppliers I had previously.  Laura’s suits are now my “go to” wardrobe for travelling.

I cannot recommend Laura and her firm enough.

The Ascot team have made being smart, stylish and comfortable in the office completely effortless and a real pleasure.

I look forward to each on-site visit and always seek John’s expertise to help me select the patterns and materials that complement my body shape and my taste with the latest trends – blending classical with twists of contemporary styling – and a perfect fit every time.

John follows up frequently to ensure that the cut and sizing of all pieces remain comfortable which has kept me a loyal, happy customer for several years - a fully bespoke and 5-star personal service - Thank you!

Laura is a professional clothier who has provided me with excellent tailoring advice and support for some years now. Given that she comes to me she definitely takes the stress out of getting quality clothing that fits perfectly.

I have been using Guy and the team at Ascot since I saw their advert in the Woodend School Fete program a few years ago. It is so convenient to have Guy visit me at home and I have been delighted with his advice and with the quality design and fitting of the bespoke suits and shirts they have made. I can highly recommend them to Colts coaches and parents"

I have been working with Guy and Ascot for a little while. He has walked me through the process and delivered the quality items that I am enjoying wearing. To be able to do all my business and casual clothing in the luxury of my home is very comfortable and convenient.

Quick email to say thank you very much for my new suits! As ever, they are excellent.

I think you’ve been making suits for me for around ten years now and I have never been anything other than delighted with them, as they are always exceptionally comfortable and easy to wear.

I have found that a well-cut suit encourages me to carry myself with a little more poise and confidence, and helps to project a good impression to new work contacts. I have no doubt that wearing your suits has contributed to my professional success. I’ve worn them to a couple of weddings in Italy and have received compliments on them – and the Italians know their stuff! I have also taken to wearing a suit jacket on some more informal occasions, and find them to be comfortable and practical. As mentioned above I am a firm fan, and would not now dream of going back to off-the peg.

I also much appreciate your advice and opinions when choosing clothes – you have excellent taste and deep knowledge, and I know I can rely on you to steer me clear of any horrific mistakes! (but you’re still not going to talk me into a monogram any time soon…)

The polite, confident and truly experienced advice I receive from Ascot Tailors is outstanding. This service as well the suits, shirts and ties are of the very best quality.

 Exceptional quality matched by exceptional service - the best way to deal with your tailoring needs.

Being taller than the average gent, I’ve worked with a number of tailors over the years to try and put a wardrobe together I can be proud of. The results have been mixed to say the least, particularly when it has come to smart casual attire. I placed an order with Laura - initially for a pair of smarter jeans - after being impressed by the professional manner she and her colleagues demonstrated on the phone. The finished product is absolutely amazing and another pair is on the way, following the completion of a shirt order, which has been equally superb. Dealing with Laura couldn’t have been easier and she has effortlessly (it seems!) created a fit that flatters my body shape. Unsolicited compliments attest to this. I couldn’t recommend Laura highly enough.

Laura is a very detailed clothing consultant, ensuring every aspect of the final suit, shirt or other item fits exactly. If it's out by half an inch then back it goes to ensure a perfect fit. She's always got a range of interesting ideas to talk about, including why they will or won't be appropriate for you - obviously a natural.

I first became aware of Laura when looking to upgrade my business wardrobe. On meeting for the first time I knew I had made the right choice. Laura has amazing knowledge and passion for her business and offers a unique consultative professional yet friendly service. She'll make recommendations for you based on establishing a clear understanding of your needs, your personality and your budget. She delivers every time and she makes the effort, often travelling half way across London to ensure you get your new outfit for a particular time or appointment. I have no hesitation in recommending her services to others as she is what every serious business women needs!

This could have been just another commission, and that would have been fine. John could have just done the necessary quality work and left it at that, and that would have been fine. But he didn't. John managed to treat me and my relatively modest needs as a personal project that required his undivided attention and was as important as any other. John was able to make me feel cared for and valued and his enthusiastic perfectionism was duly noted and greatly appreciated.

Instead of making me just another customer, John and Ascot the Tailors invited me along on a project that was just as important to him as it was to me. Thank you.

Henrik H

John and the team have done an exceptional job in creating bespoke suits for my unique requirements. He has nailed every brief with the highest of quality and flair. I highly recommend Ascot The Tailors for the most discerning business person.


I bought two pairs of tailored jeans from John. The experience was great and the jeans are the nicest I have ever owned. I look forward for my next opportunity to add to my wardrobe.

I ordered a tuxedo suit and shirt through Ascot Tailors for my wedding and couldn't have been happier - the suit and shirt fit perfectly, the quality of the fabric used was excellent and I was very impressed with the overall service. John was exceptionally helpful from the fabric selection through to the design of the suit , also arranging fittings appointments during weekends and keeping me updated on progress. The whole experience was quick and easy.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a bespoke suit and shirt made.

Jack A

Standing 6'6" tall it has always been difficult finding that perfect fit. Having bought and altered many suits "off the rack" I finally decided to bite the bullet and have 2 suits custom made. John is an expert and was able to guide me through the process of creating something truly bespoke. I am very happy with the finished product and the service I received from Ascot tailors. I will definitely continue to expand my wardrobe with John.

I highly recommend Ascot the Tailors, specifically John Styles. Having experienced Ascot’s suits, I can’t bear wearing ill-fitting off the rack suits anymore. John’s customer service is exceptional. Here is a typical transaction with John: You contact him (phone, text or email) and tell him you could do with a suit. He will come to you and show you his extensive collection of fabrics and accessories (lining, buttons, coloured button holes), consult with you regarding your needs (heavy or light fabric, how formal) and measure you up. If it is not convenient for you to have John to come to you, he will set up an appointment in a professional location.

When the suit is ready, John comes to deliver the suit to you and has you try it on to ensure it fits right. If there are any issues with the fit, he will take it away to be fixed. John keeps your details on file so that for every suit you buy, they will learn what works for you and what doesn’t, so that every suit you buy will be even better than the last.

Also, if you happen to lose or gain weight and require a re-fit, or if it just doesn’t feel right, John will come and adjust the suit for you free of charge – it’s part of the service. Ascot’s prices are reasonable for the extent of the service you get. Sure, it is more than you would pay off the rack at a cheap suit store. But the product you get is a suit of superior quality, tailored to fit you perfectly, with the convenience of never having to leave your office and getting cost-free and hassle-free adjustments when required.

I am one very happy customer.

I received my first suit from John this week and I could not fault the service or product! A very happy customer!!!
