Stories of Sartorial Icons by Savile Row’s Master Tailor
We are delighted to announce the launch of Richard’s new book. As always, we celebrated the occasion with a party at 13 Savile Row; it was wonderful to welcome our friends, customers, family to our home. The evening was superb and we feel honoured to have such good friends.
The book is now officially launched, so if you would like an autographed copy, you can buy it through this web site.
In the book Richard introduces the traditional craft of cutting a bespoke suit and garments, showcasing twenty-five classic menswear designs that have been creatively adapted in new and unusual ways for the modern gentleman. Richard tells the story of each piece, from a rakish red and white seersucker coat to a show-stopping black sequined dinner jacket, and explores the fascinating history of the diverse fabrics and cuts. Original sketches, patterns and photographs reveal the time, dedication and precision that go into creating a truly custom-made piece.
