Roderick Charles was founded in 1992 and today has six branches located in London for the convenience of their customers, predominantly serving the City and the West End. The Jermyn Street store, identifiable by its smart, racing car green shop sign and classic gold lettering, is the only one of their stores open on Sundays.
Specialising in made-to-measure business suits, Roderick Charles is a modern men’s tailor with a branch on Jermyn Street. While practising traditional craftsmanship, they have adapted it to accommodate the tastes of 21st century audiences and new, innovative fabrics including a few specially designed to keep well while travelling. Many of their fabrics are British milled and include Scottish tweeds and Yorkshire worsted.
They are also one of the most reasonably priced in the area, with custom suits starting at £899 for a two-piece, and additional trousers or waistcoats costing £299 each. While they are widely popular with businessmen, they also gladly offer their services for formal eveningwear and country styles.
In addition, you’ll find a ready-to-wear line covering suits, shirts, coats, jackets and knitwear. Their accessories selection includes belts, cufflinks, socks, handkerchiefs, scarves, and leather goods for everything you could need for sharp dressing. Look out for sales and offers to pick up refined English style for an even better price.
Their staff are knowledgeable, not just on styles and fits, but also caring for your garments. Speak to the staff in store for advice on the best way to hang and press your suit, and dry cleaning instructions, to ensure long-lasting quality.
Synonymous with good taste, the tailor has sponsored classical musical director, composer, and pianist Ross Leadbeater. Roderick Charles has provided his suits for many of his concerts, which have been held in some of the UK’s most beautiful venues.
