Richard Cole is rightly proud of his heritage as the great-grandson of Abraham Cole, who took over 'The Famous' in Cheltenham in 1896. Richard himself joined the business in 1999, becoming Menswear Director in 2007 and, with tailoring in his blood, he is very proud to bring this tradition to new life and to new and existing clients with a contemporary twist.
Richard is dedicated to continuing the legacy of highest quality tailoring, personally selected using his 15 years experience and also offering advice about shirts, ties and accessories to complete the outfit.
The importance of customer service was instilled into Richard from a young age and he recognised the strength of the business was offering something not available elsewhere on the high street - a truly personal service and superb quality menswear.
Richard wants his clients to enjoy the process and considers it his job to make finding the right suit less daunting, stress free and enjoyable so that you end up with the perfect garment for you. He offers no obligation visits and can provide semi bespoke tailoring, wedding tailoring, personal tailoring, evening tailoring as well as an off the peg service that includes alterations. If you can't fit in a visit to his premises, then he can visit you and your bride at home, so you can both be involved in the process.
Visit Richard at the wedding fair to have a chat about how he can help you find the perfect suit for your wedding day or any other occasion. As Richard says "There is nothing better than a well dressed, well suited man" and I think we can all agree with that!
