Austin Leonard Reed opened his first store on 7th July 1900 on Fenchurch Street, London. He first learned his trade from his father, who was also a menâ€™s clothing retailer. Austin Reed focused on heritage and produced ready-to-wear collections for businessmen with little time to spare. The business really took off after the development of the flagship store on Regent Street. Since then, the company has evolved greatly and now provides business wear for women. With over a century of tailoring excellence, you can trust Austin Reed to deliver outstanding quality.
