Savile Row tailor enters administration

Savile Row tailor Sartoriani has gone into administration after its owner was declared bankrupt, according to reports.

Sartoriani, which opened an office in London in 2008 and also has offices in New York and Los Angeles, has left customers out of pockets, The Times has reported.

Owner Ricky Kripalani has not been in touch with staff for more than two months while staff have not been paid since November.

Sales director Peter Opie, who was running the New York office told the newspaper: “It’s disappointing. It’s also surprising as we were making money. We made over $2 million (£1.3m) in New York last year.”

Etailer A Suit That Fits has taken over any enquiries for Sartoriani. The company said it plans to buy suits that have been made by Sartoriani to make sure customers still receive any outstanding suits. It will charge an administration fee to cover the costs.

Sartoriani was unavailable for comment.
