Jasper Littman creates bespoke mens suits and works from his studio on Savile Row. I thought it would be interesting to ask Jasper Littman about his background and creativity.
So what is your creative background?
I didn’t study any creative subjects at university but I was trained at Kilgour (Savile Row) to understand and appreciate the importance of balance and silhouette.
The aim when designing a new cut was always to flatter the wearer, as well as being distinctive enough to look very different to an off-the-peg suit.
What other career paths have you taken?
Who inspires you both locally and universally?
Locally I’m inspired by the old guard on Savile Row – the cutters and coatmakers that have forged Savile Row’s reputation over the years. Universally I’m not sure.
What would you like to achieve in the future?
I’m aiming to grow the business to the point where my cut is easily recognisable to the sartorially minded and is established as a permanent fixture in London.
Can you recommend a creative website you love?
As an amateur photographer, I enjoy looking at other photographers accounts on Flickr and Zenfolio.
Do you have a “get to work” album? (music that helps get you motivated to create!)
I have to work in complete silence, sadly. Music distracts me.
