Charlie Casey, Cousin to myself, Chris and also Nephew to Edwin has joined us here at Steed just a few weeks ago. Charlie has come on board with every interest of learning all about the "Savile Row Tailoring world."
Charlie has A-Levels in ICT and Business but chose not to attend University but to delve straight into the big wide world and start working. He's held other jobs which most recently included being a labourer for London construction firm so he certainly isn’t afraid of hard graft! However none of the jobs before really caught his eye or captured his imagination quite like what we do here at Steed.
Charlie is eager to learn the tailoring side of the firm and is currently learning under Matthew about the “Front of House” side of things in terms of learning all about the fabrics we deal with and most importantly our Steed House Style which sets up apart from the rest of "The Row". Whilst learning from Edwin and Matthew’s tailoring expertise and experience he is putting that into practise by learning to start to trim jobs up along with my brother Chris before then moving on to trouser pattern cutting with Matthew.
Along with that side of things he is also interested in helping Steed to grow both here in the UK and abroad with his valuable knowledge of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, tumblr, Pinterest etc. As we look to grow our social media interaction to bring everyone closer to the action, so to speak.
All in all it's great to have another close family member come on board with us which we hope reflects the way in which we like to do business with our customers. In a friendly, inviting and informal way to put everyone at ease. As exasperating as it can occasionally be working alongside your Father, Brother and now Cousin I really wouldn't have it any other way.
