Classic clothing that pushes the boundaries

Since setting up his shop in Savile Row in 1992, award-winning designer Richard James has become a leading figure in contemporary tailoring, with his bold, progressive take on a timeless craft. He specialises in a clean, slim silhouette, and is no stranger to colour  and unusual materials. His work has been featured on the covers of magazines, in design exhibitions, and on display at the V&A.

Using the finest materials and craftsmen in Italy and the UK, Richard James designs menswear for celebrities like Sirs Elton John, Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney, and Messrs Beckham, Law, and Cruise; but he also designs the ready to wear Mayfair collection that’s available to John Lewis customers.
