COLOUR, CUT & DESIGN
"Richard James was founded on Savile Row in 1992 by designer Richard James and his business partner Sean Dixon with a simple if cunning philosophy that remains to this day: to produce classic men’s clothing of exceptional quality and push the boundaries through colour, cut and design.
THE CAPTION READS: 'MENSWEAR FOR EVERY OCCASION'.
Richard James respected the two hundred-year history of tailoring on Savile Row and each of its perfectly practiced traditions, but set out with a not always quiet determination to do things its own way.
"Richard James was the first bespoke tailor to advertise in the style monthlies and the first to art direct a TV advertisement. In the short film screened for the first (and last) time in London cinemas, a young man is shown dressing himself beautifully in a suit, shirt and tie before jumping to his death from the top of a high-rise building.The caption reads: 'Richard James: Menswear for every occasion'.""
