From the start, we have been obsessed with creating amazing products. The business of making and selling products to others evolved out of our passion for designing, constructing, and wearing great clothing ourselves. What started as a shared hobby eventually turned into something much greater. Our founders, Derek and Jason, met in 2005 while working together in a different business where they had the opportunity to design and develop products around the world.
As their friendship grew they discovered a mutual love for tailored clothing, classic styling, and the type of accessories that make life rich and full. The dream of B&R originally began with the idea of building products they would personally love to own, and then creating a way to share those products with others. In 2009 they founded Beckett & Robb, and immediately set about finding the greatest tailors, artisans and craftsman where passion, tradition and excellence drive the way they make their products.
Today we have an extensive network of workshops and factories throughout western Europe. It continues to be important to us to work with people that are as passionate about their craft as we are. More than just business relationships, the friendships we have built with our suppliers renew our commitment to sharing their work with our clients around the world. It is our good fortune to offer products made with incredible skill and care from Italy, England, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Scotland and France.
It is very important to us that every client has an amazing experience, from beginning to end. Once you've scheduled an appointment you can trust you are in capable hands. We start by discussing your needs, where you plan to wear your new clothing, your current wardrobe, your body type, your preferences, challenges you have experienced, and much more. This process helps us focus on your specific situation.
All of us at Beckett & Robb remember the first time we put on a B&R suit. It's exhilarating to have something made from scratch for you—fine craftsmanship applied to a garment with fit and details that are all yours. Made expressly for you. We still feel the excitement and anticipation while waiting for a garment that’s been commissioned. We are inspired every time we see our clients go through this experience for the first time, and each subsequent time afterwards when they have something new made. We want everyone to have that experience.
Ensuring a superb fit is a critical part of our process. We promote a timeless fit that lies somewhere in between skinny and baggy. Our goal is to strike that delicate balance where the suit is both flattering and comfortable. This is something that will be unique to each client. To accomplish this we have to go much deeper than a few token measurements. Our system is robust and detailed, allowing for extremely nuanced adjustments to accommodate even the most challenging body types.
