Langham Place, Fifth Avenue Welcomes Savile Row Tailor Richard James

Langham Place, Fifth Avenue Welcomes Savile Row Tailor Richard James
From May 12-16, 2014 guests of Langham Place, Fifth Avenue will have unparalleled access to this contemporary London-based tailor to book custom shirt and suit appointments in one of the hotel's luxe Residence Suites. (The Richard James team will return again for the second part of their residency in Fall 2014.)

Guests are also invited to take advantage of the Langham Place, Savile Row Package, which includes accommodations at Langham Place; a 60-minute Executive Indulgence Treatment at The Spa at Langham Place, Fifth Avenue; and either a 10% discount on Custom Tailoring from Richard James, or, if the guest chooses the Made-to-Measure services, a free pair of slacks. Rates for the Langham Place, Savile Row Package start at $660 USD.

Cut from an individual pattern and pieced together in-house by hand, a custom made Richard James suit represents the ultimate tailoring experience, a unique garment that, while cut to flatter, will also reveal something of the character of its owner. The Made-to-Measure service neatly bridges the gap between bespoke (custom made) and ready-to-wear and offers the client a quick and efficient way to have a suit made to their own specifications. Involving a single fitting during which the client chooses the style of suit as well as the fabric and finishings he would like, this is a streamlined service that doesn't cut back on quality.

Created especially for the gentleman traveler, the Executive Indulgence treatment at The Spa at Langham Place includes an oil-infused soak for feet to soften the soles; rejuvenation for tired, overworked hands; and a relaxing massage for hands, feet and scalp to leave the guest feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the busy work week.

Guests who wish to book an appointment with the Richard James team during this unprecedented residency at Langham Place, Fifth Avenue, may do when booking their room or through the hotel's Guest Services' team while at the hotel. Appointments are not guaranteed and are based up on availability, on a first-come, first-served basis except for guests who book the Langham Place, Savile Row package. Guests who choose the custom suit option will also be offered the opportunity to book before Richard James Fall dates are announced at Langham Place, Fifth Avenue.

Langham Place, Fifth Avenue is centrally located at 400 Fifth Avenue, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 36th Street. In addition to a full-service spa, The Spa at Langham Place, the hotel also boasts a state-of-the art fitness center and the only midtown outpost of Julien Farel Salon, which offers both full and express services for business and leisure travelers on the go. Foodies will enjoy Ai Fiori, a Michelin-starred restaurant from Michael White's Alta Marea Group, located on the hotel's 2nd floor; and Measure, an all-day lounge featuring classic cocktails, an extensive wine and beer list, and Modern American classics with a British twist courtesy of Chef Jeff Seizer. http://newyork.langhamplacehotels.com

Since 1992 Richard James has quickly established a reputation for itself as a leading luxury brand that has set the standard for contemporary tailoring and menswear. The first of the “New Establishment” tailors on Savile Row, Richard James is proud to have contributed to revitalizing what has long been acknowledged as the world center for tailoring with its bold, progressive take on the timeless and traditional. The philosophy of Richard James is to produce classic clothing of unsurpassable quality, but to push the boundaries through design, color and cut, working closely with the best woolen mills and the most exacting artisans in Britain.
