Anderson and Sheppard, one of the most important names in British tailoring, has taken a lease of new premises on Clifford Street from the Pollen Estate.
Kitchen La Frenais Morgan and Drivers Jonas Deloitte acted on behalf of the Pollen Estate and Pilcher Hershman acted for Anderson and Sheppard.
Anderson & Sheppard will use the premises to sell ready to wear classic casual clothes including jackets, shirts, knitwear, ties, belts and accessories all made to the highest specification and sourced wherever possible from the UK. Hats, cufflinks, gloves and other small goods will also be sourced from across the world.
Anderson and Sheppard has served style icons over the years such as Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper and Douglas Fairbanks Junior. Today amongst their customers are the Prince of Wales, Ralph Fiennes, Brian Ferry, A.A. Gill and many more of the worlds most famous and elegant men.
The shop will complement the tailor’s bespoke only operation located close by in Old Burlington Street.
The century old firm was a strategic choice for the Pollen Estate which also owns significant proportion of the properties in Savile Row. The Anderson and Sheppard addition to Clifford Street together with the recent letting to Drakes at 3 Clifford Street compliments Savile Row and strengthens the important link with Bond Street.
The new store totals approximately 2,000 sq ft and has been acquired on a 10 year lease at £130,000 per annum.
