What can it add to that solid foundation with its roots in the English tradition of tailoring excellence? What happens when you take the classic menswear code, created in Savile Row, and then interpret it in a genuinely contemporary way?
At Kilgour, the emphasis is on a modern, discreet, purist aesthetic, which prizes texture over colour, and line and proportion over embellishment. In the geometry and architecture of these clothes, there is British reserve as well as evidence of an essential global design lexicon. Distilling ideas of abstraction, symmetry and balance, and working in particular with the device of the dot, or circle, Kilgour is not retrospective at all. It treats its glorious past with respect while looking resolutely to the future.
Craft is used to achieve modernity, never to pastiche the past. The approach is scientific and systematic. These are clothes engineered to be functional and comfortable. And to look effortlessly chic. Kilgour draws influence from contemporary art, architecture, design, typography and music, lending the end result a sensual rigor that speaks of a quiet self-confidence, and an intelligent approach to fashion.
The man in the Kilgour suit will always be the best-dressed in the room, but he will blend with the shadows, and nobody will know what he is wearing.
Since opening its doors in 1880, Kilgour has been an exponent of the finest sartorial craftsmanship. Over the years, it has established itself as a tailor that embraces change. Its better-known clientele includes elegant dressers such as Cary Grant and Fred Astaire, and in more recent times, the likes of actors Jude Law and Daniel Craig, designer Karl Lagerfeld, architect David Adjaye and graphic designer Peter Saville.
