Mr Richard James is a contemporary Savile Row men’s tailor who favours clean, slim silhouettes, exclusively single-breasted jackets and bright flashes of colour that run throughout the collection, which also includes covetable shirts and accessories. Walking down the Row you’d never miss two of his shop: one with ready-to-wear clothes and another one is bespoke boutique. But what is good that now you can shop his brand new collection on Mr.Porter incl. the special items made only for this online store.
A year ago, MR PORTER collaborated with Richard James on a casual sportswear collection that paid homage to that most celebrated of heritage fabrics, Harris tweed. Being thoroughly pleased with the results – and finding the sentiment echoed by MR PORTER’s customers, they’ve asked the Savile Row tailoring house to work with them again this season. And this time the theme is corduroy. And what we especially love is velvet stuff: shirts, pants, vest etc.
Being lucky I (Pavel Boyman) met Richard almost year ago and was amazed by his models and philosophy of sophisticated, but comfortable gentlemen’s wear. This collection only prove it in a fresh way.
