Choppin and Lodge, Something different? Possibly?   Richard Wainwright would like to think so! His approach to bespoke clothing is unerring, detail and precision are key factors in his work and applied to everything he does Together with master cutter Malcolm Jackson they bring the heritage values of quality and service with modern twists on design and presentation. It's the unique mix of classic, clean tailoring with fabric and design that is personal to the customer. It's true bespoke tailoring.

Whilst we can advise on style, cut and colour, and are well at home with traditional design, we will be delighted to work with you to bring your own ideas and thoughts to reality. Our love of experimenting with new designs and blending different influences is what separates us from the masses.
