Before Richard James opened his shop at number 29 in 1992, Savile Row was a rather fusty thoroughfare trading on former glories.
Today it is a vibrant, world-leading menswear shopping destination, where classic meets contemporary.
We have a lot to thank James for, not least the trademark clean silhouette and the bright flashes of colour he brought to traditional men’s clothes.
To mark his 21 transformative years on the Row, we’ve selected 21 Richard James items that every man should have in his life. From James’ classic electric-meets-midnight blue suit to the ultimate holdall from his new luggage range to a proper pair of brogues.
