3 min read

The traditions of tailoring, redefined through the lens of modernity, Richard George’s “Modern Tailoring” collection for Spring/Summer 2024 is a convergence of tradition and innovation.

This collection beautifully blends exquisite craftsmanship with functional design. Let’s take a closer look at the standout looks that bridge the past and future of tailored fashion.

The Prince of Wales Check

In cloth synonymous with the British Royal family, this double-breasted suit – crafted from exquisite fabric by British Mill Dugdale Bros – boasts a fully canvassed jacket and structured roped shoulders, it’s a commanding silhouette that is brought right up to date by the 11cm wide lapels and beautiful clean lines throughout the double-breasted drape.

The Relaxed Blush Suit

Soft, modern femininity radiates from this relaxed, blush pink double-breasted suit, in light virgin wool for both comfort and graceful drape. Accented with a self-fabric belt and styled with an off-white cotton and silk T-shirt and court sneakers in matching blush pink, this is the pinnacle of casual summer tailoring for women. Versatility could be ensured by styling it with stilettos and a shirt for a weekday business look.

The Active Teal Hoody

This teal blue hoody features cutting-edge technical materials from Como’s Olmatex mill, offering flexibility and breathability. The contrast cord adds interest and ties in with the rest of the look; tailor-made chinos in a greige cotton, with a small amount of stretch for comfort and movement. The sporty runner sneakers compliment the look and ensure off-duty style is crisp and put-together.

The Reversible Gilet

Utilizing innovative fabrics from the same mill, Olmatex, this versatile reversible gilet combines informality with practicality, instantly elevating what’s underneath. It’s the details that individualise this gilet; the lack of pockets ensures a clean, modern aesthetic, along with the contrast zip in a vibrant teal.

The Business Pinstripe

A contemporary twist on the business suit in light grey pinstripe from Italian mill Reda, this look is sleek, with a minimal waistband and wide lapels giving it sharp corners and smooth lines. Styled with a tie, this is power dressing with a feminine edge.

The Midnight Navy Suit

An indispensable element of the modern man’s wardrobe, this midnight blue suit is in a twisted wool from British Mill, Dugdale Bros. The high twist lends the suit durability, but the weave is open and, as such, makes this the perfect navy suit for summer. The high shine nickel buttons sourced from one of the oldest button-makers, Benson and Clegg, enable the jacket to be worn separately, as a blazer.

The All-White Suit

A vision in white, this suit and matching summer coat are crafted from vegan-friendly, opaque fabric offering a look that transcends seasons and occasions. The double-breasted jacket is just two-button closure, which is feminine, cinching the waist and drawing the eye in. The mother of pearl buttons offer an opalescence that compliments the slight lustre of the fabric. The epitome of timeless elegance.

The Men’s Pink Velvet Jacket

Prepared for summer nights, this eye-catching pink velvet jacket is perfectly paired with off-white wool trousers, offering a distinctive look that’s both luxurious and playful. The bib lapel of the jacket is a distinctive feature, unusual and classic. The velvet house-slippers are personalised with the wearer’s initials and nod to the 19th Century pass-time of retiring to the drawing room for cigars and brandy.

The Classic Navy Blazer

Transforming the high twist navy suit jacket into a stylish blazer, this look is completed with a Panama hat, which can only be referred to as such if it is handmade and bleached in Ecuador. The white shirt, silk tie and white trousers create a classic and refined summer look.

The Sage Green Suit

Revolutionizing women’s tailoring with the addition of shorts, this sage green ensemble is accessorized with a linen shirt and a belt created with printed silk from Carnet with just a hint of the equine. The wool of the suit ensures comfort and the sage green is a hue deliberately chosen because it flatters many colourings. The addition of the skirt as an option gives the suit more versatility, allowing it to be worn formally.

The Pale Blue Linen Suit

Stand out this summer with this pale blue linen suit, paired with a graphic silk camp shirt, which warrants closer inspection. It is both tastefully whimsical and fashionable. The blue of the linen is an azure summer sky, and the classic single breasted style is infinitely wearable.

The Green Technical Suit

Fashion meets function in this casual yet stylish green technical suit, designed for both comfort and contemporary flair. It is lightweight and designed to give an air of sprezzatura to the wearer.

The Women’s Boating Blazer

Showcasing the collection’s adaptability, this ensemble pairs white trousers with a high-twist wool navy blazer by Angelico, adorned with a silk neck scarf in blues for a quintessential maritime look.
