Richard James was founded on Savile Row in 1992 with a simple, clear philosophy that remains to this day: to produce classic, refined clothing of unsurpassed quality and push the boundaries through design, colour and cut. The first of the more fashion orientated ‘New Establishment' tailors on Savile Row, Richard James is credited as having done much to revitalise the reputation and fortunes of what is widely acknowledged to be the world centre of quality tailoring.
While Richard James' collections centre on its slim, clean-lined ‘modern classic' tailoring, they include a full range of casual wear, knitwear, outerwear, footwear, shirts, denim, luggage and markedly individual accessories. This progressive take on the timeless has seen Richard James win both the British Fashion Council's Designer of the Year and Bespoke Designer of the Year awards. The name Richard James remains synonymous with contemporary Savile Row tailoring and modern British menswear, but with stockists throughout the world and a slick global ecommerce operation in addition to its two Savile Row stores it is now a brand with a distinctly international outlook and appeal.
