LONDON — Richard James, the Savile Row tailor and a fixture on the London men’s calendar, is broadening its reach far beyond Mayfair.
The label, which opened on Savile Row in 1992, is notching annual growth of 10 percent, and plans are afoot to open a second rtw shop, in the City of London in September. The 800-square-foot store, which will also offer a made-to-measure service, will be located on Brushfield Street, off Liverpool Street.
