In 2001, Richard Anderson became the first new tailoring business to open up shop on Savile Row in the new millennium. Founders Brian Lishak and Richard Anderson have spent their whole working lives on the street and were inspired by their passion for the trade to create a new generation of tailoring. Their years of experience are passed on to their meticulously-trained staff who have come from around the world to learn from the best.
Their customers travel from all corners of the globe too, and the team make international visits to Europe, America, and Japan throughout the year for those unable to make it to the Savile Row site. Famous names on their books include Sir Ian McKellen, who wore one of their bespoke suits to the Oscars in 2003.
The Richard Anderson house style is long, clean cut lines with a shape that accentuates the chest for a confident feeling. One-button jackets have high arm holes with no rope to elongate the sleeves and allow for easy movement. A slight flare at the hips and pockets and vents placed higher up create the illusion of a slightly longer body. The style has been crafted out of many years spent understanding the needs of modern gentlemen who love bespoke. Their suits are made with a minimum of 60 man hours in the workshop at Savile Row, never leaving the store until you come to collect it.
Their made-to-measure suits are completed with canvased linings, instead of the commonly used fused lining technique, for top-notch quality. Ready-to-wear suits, shirts, jackets, and accessories are also available.
