An Introduction to J.H. Cutler

Since 1884 J.H. Cutler, one of Australia’s and the worlds great tailors, has provided bespoke tailoring and shirt making services to discerning gentlemen throughout Australia, and across the world. This year J. H. Cutler, which has been owned by the Cutler family throughout this time, enters its 135th continuous year of business as a bespoke tailor and shirt maker in Sydney, with John Cutler OAM running the business from 1976 until the present day.

Over the years, leading identities from Federal and State politics, country families, business, the law, medicine, diplomacy and the world of entertainment and sport have enjoyed the benefits of tailoring skills based on the great traditions of England’s Savile Row, the home of bespoke tailoring.

In all, four generations of my family have assiduously maintained the exacting standards, the quality, the cut, the style and the fit that has made our name synonymous with exclusive clothing.

Today, as businessman, designer and cutter, my passion for discrete, personal service, old-world hand craftsmanship, and sourcing of the very finest of materials from around the world, continues to deliver clothes of timeless elegance and unparalleled quality.

Our traditional, hand-made bespoke tailoring includes suits for business and formal wear, jackets, trousers, blazers and overcoats. J.H. Cutler bespoke shirts are available by Single needle machine, sewn or pure hand-made bespoke.

CANVAS by J.H. Cutler is our contemporary approach to bespoke tailoring, directed by Sam Hazelton. Sam began working at J.H. Cutler in February of 2009 and has been developing his skills across all areas of our bespoke craft with passion and dedication. In 2014 the CANVAS by J.H. Cutler brand was conceived as a complimentary offering to our traditional pure bespoke craftsmanship. Hand cut and fitted by Sam, using a pattern he drafts from a client’s individual measurements, CANVAS offers an entrée into the world of bespoke clothing with a contemporary eye for detail and cut.
