"Savile Row since 1992. We were considered anti-establishment, but now we're the so-called New Establishment.
SIGNATURES: “Contemporary Savile Row tailoring and modern British menswear. And we like to use colour.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “What has become known over the last twenty-one years as our ‘modern classic’ tailoring: one or two-button jackets with deep side vents and a slightly higher armhole for a slim, definitive silhouette.”
IDEAL CLIENT: “Someone who puts a bit of themselves into our clothes, someone who really brings them to life."
“Our autumn/winter 2014 collection salutes the Edwardian Boys and the new dawn of the dandy, the sharp-edged, highly stylised explosion of self-expression that shocked a nation and shaped the brave, unbridled new world of British street style. Proud and provocative, the Edwardian Boys took their slick, sculpted look from the immaculate officer class and their tailors of late 1940s Savile Row, making it their own with a streak of urban attitude and piercing splashes of peacock colour.”
ONE PLACE IN LONDON THAT ALWAYS INSPIRES YOU:
“I’d have to say the auction house Christie’s, which is just around the corner from where I live and work on King Street, St James's. I don’t know of another place in the world, let alone London, where you’ll come across a more fascinating, never-ending array of art and artifacts.”
BEST THING IN LONDON TO DO FOR FREE:
“Walk. There is no better city in the world in which to take a stroll than London. From grand Mayfair through the sprightlier streets of Soho to Lincoln’s Inn Fields and on to the Diamond District of Hatton Garden. That’s a typical wander for me, and I have never failed to notice something I haven’t spotted before.”
