Summer 18 at Richard Anderson

Summer linens and bright coloured accessories are the theme for this glorious season at Richard Anderson.


It is believed that flax was cultivated as far back as 1000 BC in Ireland, and it was once compulsory for all farm hands to learn how to grow this versatile plant, thanks to its abundant uses within medicine, food, oil and textile production.

As one of the earliest woven fabrics, linen’s inimitable qualities of high absorbency and durability have seen it stand the test of time. Prevailing as a favourite during the warmer months due to its hard wearing, breathable nature.

This summer we have partnered with a cloth mill in Huddersfield showcase a unique range of interesting colours in stunning 12oz linen. Teal is a very interesting shade for a suiting option, the dry handle and subtle texture of linen give it an extra element of charm, whilst a sportier style slanted pocket gives it a versatile touch.

The ability to wear this suit as a sports coat with pale coloured trousers makes these a firm customer favourite.


Add a touch of colour to classic suitings with our range of rich coloured felt braces. These braces are exclusively made for Richard Anderson Ltd by Albert Thurston; who was the first to sell these practical accessories from his boutique in London’s Haymarket in 1820.

The stunning colours have a subtle texture and white leather and brass fittings. Braces are a staple in any gentleman’s formal wardrobe, they have also made a resurgence of late within more informal settings, contributing to an extremely fashionable accessory.


Meticulously crafted in a ribbed knit from luxurious cotton with a small blend of nylon for comfort, these mid-length socks reach the top of the calf which ensure they do not bunch throughout the day. The rich spectrum of colours are perfect for both formal and casual looks and give the wearing the ability to add a touch of character to traditional navy or grey suit. The socks are made exclusively for Richard Anderson in Leicestershire, England.
