The Austin Reed Heritage

What is the most ‘manly’ mall in Riyadh? Jarir! Oh right, Jarir is not a mall. Haha! Hmn, that would have to be Localizer Mall don’t you think? After Localizer will have to be Granada Centre, one of our favorite malls as well. At least that’s where most fashionable guys are and through the years that the city center has been filling up with more people and establishments, most malls have gone towards the ring roads and most brands have opened up the “first of” their stores there. Take for example UK brand Austin Reed. It’s first store opened in Riyadh opened in Granada Mall late last year.

Welcome to Austin Reed Riyadh!

Welcome to Austin Reed Riyadh!

Founded by Austin Leonard Reed in 1900, Austin Reed (the brand) was the first menswear retailer to make ready-to-wear clothes that has the same level of expertise as made-to-measure. It’s first store was established in Fenchurch Street in United Kingdom followed by a bigger flagship store in 113 Regent Street in 1911. Today, Austin Reed known for its blending of traditional values with contemporary style is now a global brand delivering superior quality to over 100 countries. Not only did it continue to grow and innovate but it also got a royal following being granted two Royal Warrants as official suppliers and outfitters to Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and the royal family. Well, I’m not sure if you’ll look like a royal wearing their pieces but I’m sure you’ll feel like you belong in the upper echelons of society, haha.
