Richard Anderson began his career at just 17 years old as an apprentice to Colin Hammick at Henry Huntsman & Sons in 1982. His professional rise to the top has been nothing short of impressive—at 34 years old he became the youngest head cutter in Huntsman’s 150-year history. And in 2001, Richard Anderson opened his eponymous bespoke tailoring shop located at 13 Savile Row.
Upon my recent visit, I was warmly welcomed by Richard Anderson’s co-founder Brian Lishak. He recalled pleasant memories about his unrivalled 57 years of experience on the row.
I also had the luck and pleasure of catching the master-tailor Richard Anderson himself, just back from a recent trip to Tokyo. He shared some of his recent (and very interesting) endeavors of a made-to-measure service at Isetan Mitsukoshi, one of Japan’s largest department stores.
It was a special experience to witness the finest standard craftsmanship at the Richard Anderson shop. Here are a few pictures of my visit.
