Saw this on the Anderson and Sheppard blog.
"If you are a young, diligent, enthusiastic and committed about becoming a Trouser Cutter we would be delighted to hear from you." Although ageism is alive and well in the U.S. a job notice by a reputable company would never list an age requirement.
THE TROUSER DEPARTMENT – APPRENTICE NEEDED
Here in London the front door bell in the shop has felt like it hasn’t had a break since last Christmas. The year has flown by and we continue to be grateful to all our customers, established and new, for their trust and loyalty in what we do and make.
In addition to our work in London, we are delighted to say we have had two more successful trips to the United States, one in May and the other in October.
We have a specialist trouser department led by Head Cutter John Malone with Oliver Spencer cutting alongside him. Oliver started as an under-cutter in 2008 and, thanks to the steerage of John Malone, has become a highly respected Cutter in his own right. He now has his own customers, and has not only been cutting for a number of the London Collections: Men for Anderson and Sheppard, but has also been consulting on the ready to wear trouser collection for our Clifford Street Haberdashery.
With ever expanding demand, we are looking to expand the department and are ready to recruit an additional member of the team. If you are a young, diligent, enthusiastic and committed about becoming a Trouser Cutter we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please send your CV and covering letter to:
Mr. John Malone, 32 Old Burlington Street, London, W1S 3AT
