The Richard Anderson style is classic at heart but designed to suit each individual. A true bespoke tailor makes for the personality of the customer and guides him or her in matters of taste, never allowing the clothes to become more prominent than the person. Richard Anderson clothes have their own voice but they never shout.
The subtle craft of a Savile Row tailor, present throughout Richard Anderson’s work, is to create a garment that is sublime in style, perfect in make and that seamlessly becomes a part of the customer’s persona. The customer should be recognised for who they are, not what label they wear - Savile Row tailoring is not about labels, in fact the only garment label on a Richard Anderson suit is on the inside of the inside pocket.
