Hidalgo Brothers in London
Marco Hidalgo discovered a natural passion for tailoring early on in life while working with his uncle and cousins in Ecuador. Then at the age of 24, with his new found knowledge and expertise he came to London to make his mark.
Having started out at Norton and Sons in Savile Row, Marco mastered his trade and gained valuable experience from their master tailors. Then by the end of the 1980's he had become self employed for Austin Reed and Burberry.

Pretty disappointed with the workmanship of the alterations. The quality was average. I chose a saville row tailer to alter my suit in the hope that the work would be of a higher standard than my local alteration tailor. I got the feeling I was an annoyance for them - granted, they make their money from bespoke suits, and alterations are probably not a big deal, but you still expect them to at least pretend to be enjoying their work. I had to take it to another tailor to fix the problems largely because i didn't realise I accepted a VAT free rate, so my ability to complain legally was inadvertently thwarted.
