Dates of existence
Savile Row tailor Kilgour has its origins in two firms, T. & F. French and A.H. Kilgour. In 1923 they merged to become Kilgour & French with brothers Fred and Louis Stanbury joining in 1925. They were renowned for their elegance and smartness of cut and the house was renamed Kilgour, French & Stanbury in 1937. In 1970 the company incorporated Bernard Weatherall, a tailor known for sporting and equestrian wear. From 1977 to 1982 Tommy Nutter was with the house and in 1981 introduced a ready-to-wear range called Tommy Nutter for Kilgours.
In 2003 the company relaunched as Kilgour with menswear designer Carlo Brandelli as Creative and Design Director. He worked with the house until 2009 and then again between 2013-2017.
