How Cad & The Dandy does things differently

It can’t be easy competing with some of the oldest names in tailoring. But Cad & The Dandy’s skilfully executed collections ensure that nobody puts this baby in the corner.
Cad & The Dandy

In comparison to most of Savile Row’s stalwarts, Cad & The Dandy is a mere fledgling. At just 12 years old, it’s the tailoring street’s baby brother, running around, disrupting the way things are done and seeking out a younger, more playful clientele than some of its siblings are used to. Whilst stores such as Gieves & Hawkes (founded in 1771), Dege & Skinner (1865), Huntsman (1809) have time on their side, tradition at their core and long-time clients on their books, Cad & The Dandy’s relative newness began attracting a slightly different crowd when it was opened in 2008 by James Sleater and Ian Meiers.

Twelve years on, Cad & The Dandy has succeeded as a flourishing business, not just serving the needs of its founders’ City squad but also of celebrities such as Kelsey Grammer, Chris Rock, Colin Farrell, Robert Pattinson, Noel Gallagher and Iain Glenn from Game of Thrones and several Royal weddings.
