A love of smart clothes drove Richard into a career in tailoring. His father cut a dapper figure in tailored suits with smart attire that enhanced his elegant look. While his mother and grandmother were distinguished seamstresses. Surrounded by threads, machines and creative energy, he took these ideas to heart.
In his late teens, after spending some adolescent years with a local tailor, he reached out for an apprenticeship with a master tailor on the prestigious Savile Row. His letters were rejected or ignored. As a result, he took himself to London to pursue his goal. Knocking on each door in person, he got more than his fair share of rejections! Finally, a master tailor said, ‘Yes’.
He catapulted his career with his personable determination. This approach has stood him in good-stead. From the position of master tailor for a tailoring business in the Midlands, he learnt about the business, travelling the world to mills and meeting significant business owners he built up his personal knowledge and a sense of style.
The moment was right in 2019 to step out alone and launch his own brand, Richard George. Suits are cut from the most exquisite cloth. He matches every part of his business to his own exacting standard. A quality brand that is beautiful from the inside to the finished appearance.
His philosophy is to make garments that will exist for longer than we could imagine. Suits can be handed down through the generations. Classic styles go on forever. The lining, the finish and detail are all the important. Seams, edges and some flair are all encapsulated within just one garment.
His approach is to sell accessories that match his own exacting standard. Handmade shoes are offered at Richard George along with handbags and leather goods that are a cut above other pieces. Located at the grounds of Dallas Burston Polo Club, Southam his business is thriving. Customers travel to have the whole magnificent tailored experience and leave with suits, jackets, ceremonial suits and Dinner Jackets with so much more.
