Steed in Sin City?

Steed in Sin City?

This Saturday, May 2nd marks the day of one of the biggest boxing fights of all time! Mayweather Vs Pacquiao.

Avid Boxing fans have been waiting years for this fight and it is finally here, live in Las Vegas, Nevada!

Everyone here at Steed will be forking our for this Pay-Per-View event which starts at 4am UK time. Possibly complimented by a few beers…

We will also be looking out for our friend, client and Former World Middleweight Champion, Darren Barker who will be wearing a Steed suit whilst working as a pundit covering the fight. Over a coffee last week he gave us his prediction of a draw. Stating that there is too much money to be made by all parties for there not to be a re-match plus the fact it’s just too close to call.

I’m actually one of the few who are in Floyd’s camp whilst also predicting a 11th round TKO win for Floyd.

Anyway, with all of the extensive coverage of this showcase, with Las Vegas once again being the backdrop, coupled with our few days of fun there for Dad’s (Edwin’s) birthday before we started our February trip, we’re considering the idea of introducing a stop in Las Vegas during our October trip.

However to take the plunge, just like when we added San Francisco to our full time schedule back in 2013, we would need to first gauge the interest in adding a 7th city to our itinerary. Then weigh up if it is viable and makes good business sense.

The idea is to go from San Francisco to Las Vegas, have a couple of days fun followed by a day of work and seeing any perspective clients before then heading on to Nashville.

Dad and I currently visit 6 cities in 16 days with only 1 day of respite so it would be nice to add a couple of days of fun in “Sin City” whilst being able to expand our U.S client base further.

If you are local to Las Vegas or a nearby city and are interested in what we have to offer, please get in touch with us via matthew@steed.co.uk

We would appreciate it if people could contact us in the near future so we can make a decision by August.

Enjoy the fight on Saturday!

Cheers,


Matthew & Charlie

Charlie Joins the Steed Team

Charlie Joins the Steed Team


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. 
Cheers,
Matthew
