Royal wedding fever is in full-swing! With all eyes on what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be wearing on their big day, we take you behind the scenes of professional footballer Chris Porter and Cheryl Cunningham’s own fairytale wedding.
The pair jetted off to the South of France to hold their wedding ceremony in a grand Gothic cathedral followed by the reception at a majestic Chateau.
The groom opted for a Scottish plaid theme to his attire with a traditional tartan bow tie. Chris wanted to take the theme even further by complementing his bespoke waistcoat and jacket with the accessories!
However, the tartan fabric was too thick to use as a lining to the garments. The solution? I created an exact copy of the tartan and printed it onto a lightweight fabric that was used to line the waistcoat and suit jacket.
The cufflinks were also handmade in the lining fabric and then customised even further with the Groom and usher’s initials embroidered on.
Father’s Day, a time to honour and show thanks to the father and father figures in our lives.
To complement my bespoke offering I have a range of unique and luxurious accessories that would make the ideal gift for Father’s Day. From ready-to-wear shirts to sterling silver and diamond cufflinks, hand-stitched leather bags, or a gift card, there is something for any discerning gentleman.
I’m also excited to be the exclusive UK stockist of beautifully hand-crafted leather shoes by Roque Vicente, and offer luxury men’s parfum by multi award-winning fragrance specialist Roja Dove!

There’s a very easy way of sprucing up your summer wardrobe and that’s by investing in a bespoke jacket in a lightweight or cool wool fabric. Wear it with jeans, a tee, shorts and sandals or with shirt and tie. There are so many ways to get the most out of it to create a look that’s perfect for any occasion from a wedding reception to a weekend away.
I recommend an unlined jacket as it’s so cool in summer, in a classic colour such as navy to see you through from summer to autumn.
My design studio in Shoreditch offers a personalised service that allows unique details such as a custom printed lining, to match your favourite colour, a unique pattern, or even an illustration of your pet!
My newest design concept, the ‘Julien’ jacket (as seen worn by Thom Evans and Ryan Libbey), sports a detachable hood – ideal for the unpredictable British summer weather. I also work closely with the leading mills in Italy to offer super exclusive limited edition fabrics such as this metallic camouflage or flame pattern.
Stephen Williams London – Bespoke Jackets from £695
Ryan Libbey, best known for his starring role in Made in Chelsea, is also a fitness coach and model.
With a professional rugby player’s build, it’s difficult for Ryan to find off-the-peg clothing that fits his tall and muscular physique. I work with him to create garments that not only fit but perfectly sculpt his assets.
From a formal tuxedo suit to a striking red cashmere overcoat, print shirt or sporty hooded blazer, Ryan always looks the part in bespoke Stephen Williams London!
The ultimate lot for the stylish chap – a limited edition ‘bespoke jacket in a box’. Each plush handcrafted leather box holds enough fabric and lining to cut a bespoke jacket.
The winner of the lot will simply book an appointment to be fitted for the jacket. He will receive British tailor Stephen Williams’ quintessential high level of personal service to choose style, fit and details such as stitching, buttons, monogramming and more.
The event is one of London’s most successful charity auctions and a night like no other that raises money to support people living with HIV.
Former rugby star Thom Evans is one of the sharpest dressers I have the pleasure of working with. Whether he’s sitting front row at a catwalk show or meeting his mates down the pub for a few beers on a Sunday, Thom always understands the importance of dressing to impress.
Below are a few snaps of Thom wearing bespoke garments I have made for him over the past twelve months.
