Cad & The Dandy acquires Swedish King’s suit maker

Savile Row’s biggest tailor Cad & The Dandy has acquired Scandinavia’s oldest tailoring house, Götrich.

Established in 1730, the family-run Götrich business has dressed every Swedish King since its inception.

This new venture will secure both the future success of Götrich, and promote brand Britain’s manufacturing/menswear sector overseas.

Expanding into the Swedish capital, Cad & The Dandy is flying in the face of Brexit by expanding into Europe, spreading the reputation and reach of Savile Row to Scandinavia and beyond.

Established in 2008, Cad & The Dandy have gone from recession start-up to the largest tailor in the UK. Stateside expansion is also set to follow in spring, with two New York store openings.

James Sleater, founder of Cad & The Dandy, said: “Buying a business with such a fantastic heritage and illustrious customer base, past and present, further combines our passion - to drive the craftsmanship, reach and secure future of Savile Row.”
