Brand: OZWALD BOATENG. Savile Row.
About the brand: Ozwald Boateng OBE is a British fashion designer of Ghanaian descent, known for his trademark twist on classic British tailoring style. Inspired by his father's suits, Boateng opened his first shop on Savile Row at the age of 23. Born in 1967 in Muswell Hill, North London, Boateng's parents had emigrated from Ghana in the 1950s. His father continued his career as a teacher, while his mother who was in the fabric trade in Ghana became a seamstress in London. His parents divorced when he was eight, and Boateng has two older siblings. Boateng was inspired by the immaculate suits his father wore, and received his first suit from his mother aged 5: a double-breasted in purple mohair. At fourteen, he found a summer job sewing linings into suits.
Savile Row is a shopping street in Mayfair, central London, famous for its traditional men's bespoke tailoring. The term "bespoke" is understood to have originated in Savile Row when cloth for a suit was said to "be spoken for" by individual customers. The short street is termed the "golden mile of tailoring" where customers have included Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson and Napoleon III.Who wears it: Richard Branson, Lewis Hamilton and Ranulph Fiennes plus many more.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASERS:
1. Please contact us first to ensure we post to your destination.
2. Please contact us for postage & packaging cost BEFORE purchasing the item. This is to ensure that you are comfortable paying the postage & packaging rate to your country.
Sending an item overseas may actually be a lot a higher that you would expect, this is because all our items have to be sent both tracked and insured, which obviously bump up the cost.

Please note the postage we quote is non-negotiable. We are aware that Royal Mail offers a small package standard international rate, however this service is uninsured and untraceable.

Before deciding to return the item, you have a statutory duty to take care of the goods in your possession. This includes any packaging which forms part of the goods. For example, card, pins, tissue paper, plastic bag etc. Basically the item must be returned in the exact same condition as sent out to you. E.g.: Bundling a suit creased into a tiny bag is not acceptable.
Please note that we closely inspect and security mark all items before dispatching, therefore any deliberately damaged garments will not be refunded but will be returned to sender.
If your purchase does not fit you and you require a return for a refund, we are more than happy to do so, however all of our items have been measured as accurate as possible. If you require further measurements to ensure the correct fit, please email us before purchasing the item.
Please also note we do not offer refunds on P&P. This will be the ACTUAL postage paid for the item to be sent to you, not the capped P&P rate that eBay set. (E.g.: a suit to the UK costs approximately £9.00, NOT eBay's capped rate of £4.00). Return P&P costs are to be met by the buyer.
