Brands & Retail

Chester Barrie

Chester Barrie was first established some 75 years ago with the expressed aim of creating tailoring that offered the quailty and fit of Savile Row but readily accessible. It is an approach the brand continues to uphold today. Chester Barrie is a well recongnised tailoring brand with distribution in Europe and internationally.

The business was founded by Simon Ackerman, an Englishman in New York who wanted to sell classic British tailoring to the American market. He set up his factory in the north of England in 1935 and opened on London's Savile Row two years later; this acted as a base for a burgeoning international business. Savile Row is the cradle of modern tailoring. From the early 1800's to the present day it has been home to the finest bespoke tailors as they have developed their craft, creating handfinished, beautifully-styled suits, jackets and coats. Chester Barrie is firmly part of this high quality tradition.

After the Second World War Ackerman sent his son Myron to run the business. It was his drive and energy that propelled the brand onto the international stage, taking it into Harrods, El Corte Inglés and Old England in Europe as well as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman in the USA. The Chester Barrie name thrived throughout the rest of the twentieth century and the Ackerman business expanded into Italy with the launch of soft tailoring line d'Avenza.

Today the brand is growing again, building on its heritage for the modern world. We currently have 20 retail outlets in major UK and European Department Stores as well as wholesale distribution in the USA.
