Historical Redmayne clients ledger.
Five generations of family tailoring
S Redmayne Ltd began its tailoring dynasty way back in 1860. Samuel Redmayne built a business of over twenty five retail stores and the most modern tailoring factory in Europe. A great philanthropist who was known as the "best boss". Due to the decline of suit wearing in the 70's and 80's, Redmayne has since specialised in bespoke tailoring for a world wide client base. This is when a young, fresh faced apprentice turned up called Tom Mahon.
Fine tailoring is an art and personal expression.
The Redmayne suit formula is simple - a slim cut silhouette and a soft comfortable make; a suit which looks individual and is a pleasure to wear. A really special suit needs a story and heritage behind it, which we have in spades. This will ultimately become clear in the look and feel of the garment. A suit from Redmayne reflects both our 150 year history as bespoke tailors and the singular view of our Head Cutter, Tom Mahon.

Back to the future!
Redmayne is the company that launched the career of our Head Cutter and Creative Director, Tom Mahon over three decades ago. After his apprenticeship, he went on to further hone his skills as senior cutter at Savile Row's Anderson and Sheppard. Tom also penned the world's first tailoring blog, English Cut and founded and ran his own company of the same name for over 15 years. Just like Redmayne, his career and reputation has been built over the years on trust and experience. This tradition continues today as Tom trains here in our own workshop and teaching at university.
