Our Client Stories

5 min read

Tailoring is an experience, there’s no doubt about it. Having something designed and made for you is something incredibly special. It’s emotional, tactile and highly personal. It requires a relationship with your tailor built on trust and an understanding of personal style. We’ve created the Gentlemen Series so that you can hear directly about our clients’ experience with the team at Richard George Tailoring, and how their style has elevated as a result.


In the first installment of the series, Andrew discusses his linen suit. Linen is a great choice for summer, and with Andrew’s work often taking him to warmer climes, he needed a business suit that would be breathable but still professional. Linen is also a vegan fibre, and more sustainable than cotton. Learn more about Andrew’s experience.


Brazilian-born Rafael talks about his relationship with Richard George Tailoring and his classic black pinstripe suit, Egyptian cotton shirt and 100% silk tie. Rafael has a style that is unique; poised, pristine and professional he is often complimented on his Richard George attire. Learn more about Rafael’s experience.


Softer, but with no less style or class, Rowland’s double-breasted chalk stripe suit speaks to formality and sharpness. New to tailoring prior to coming to Richard George, Rowland describes how he found the experience. Learn more about Rowland’s experience.


Rob’s three-piece country check suit is created using tweed from British mill Porter and Harding. It evokes classic British pastimes; days at the races or other British field sports. Rob gives an emotional tribute to how Richard George Tailoring has made him feel over the years. Learn more about Rob’s experience.


Best known for his acting work, Toby Alexander Smith is no stranger to the sartorial world. Toby’s suit and coat from Richard George are modern and wearable. The dark olive-green hue of his suit is unique, and gives this double-breasted suit a contemporary look. Toby’s wool and cashmere coat is formal enough that it can be worn together with the suit, but the raglan sleeve detail enables it to work just as well with a more casual look. Learn more about Toby’s experience.


A classic navy suit to finish our Gentlemen Series; Derren’s suit, made with fabric from Loro Piana is classic, versatile and lightweight. Derren explains how the details of the suit really matter, and how the guidance of the Richard George Tailoring team lead him to elevate his style. Learn more about Toby’s experience.
