On the eve of its 25th anniversary, contemporary Savile Row tailor Richard James has reaffirmed its commitment to bespoke tailoring as the heartbeat of the business.
Previously occupying three floors within its Richard James Bespoke premises on Clifford Street, the brand has now taken over the lease on the whole property, providing more space to enhance the customer experience.
A newly commissioned neon artwork of Richard James, in iconic arms folded stance, sits above the fireplace.
On the first floor, much of the space has been converted into the ultimate gentleman’s walk-in wardrobe. As well as a selection of bespoke examples to help customers and guide them through the process, is a rail of some of the brands best known pieces including the distinctive matching camo suits made by famous by Dustin Hoffman and Robert de Niro on the cover of George magazine in 1991.
The upward expansion means Richard James Bespoke now have two floors showcasing bespoke and made-to-measure tailoring, a customer lounge and bar, dedicated fitting area and over 15,000 English and Italian cloth samples to show.
The new changing room is full upholstered with a slate grey 16oz English-woven herringbone cloth, complimenting dark grey walls.
The evolution of Richard James Bespoke coincides with the impending launch of the brand’s first US store on Park Avenue in New York.
