Scott Langton created his eponymous collection to be a preferred menswear brand for the contemporary man.
Scott started his fashion career on the factory floor, working as a sewing machine technician at I. J. Dewhirst in Thatcher-era, Great Britain. He received his degree in fashion design, moving on to a Masters degree at the Royal College of Art, apprenticing under Richard James on Savile Row. He was brought to US soil by streetwear icon Russell Simmons where he served as head designer of Phat Farm. He quickly crossed over to lead design at Sean John and then ECKO Unlimited. His own street wear creations, Artful Dodger and Under Two Flags, were each acquired by Iconix and Jay Z, and GTFM, respectively.
Scott returns to his roots with this collection, and, although tailoring is synonymous with suiting, he set out to incorporate the tradition, quality and exacting standards required of fine tailored garments into a complete contemporary offering, updating classics like outerwear and trousers, while refining casual fashion offerings such as hoodies, T-shirts and denim. Top quality materials and exceptional handcrafted details are the trademark of the brand. Scott Langton finds inspiration from the world that surrounds him and the lifestyles of young professional men who go from the office to client meetings at Soho House.
The goal is simple: to create a luxury menswear collection that combines both innovation and style, providing for the modern man’s needs. Scott created the Scott Langton as the perfect version of his own wardrobe. Every nuance is in line with today’s fashionable gentleman: evolved, well traveled and stylish; demanding items that allow him to stand out in a sea of those blindly following tradition.
Everything in his life is elevated and forward thinking. This is why Scott Langton is his trusted brand.
