Company description
The Big Red Building, which is Gold’s Factory Outlet has a unique history. Unusually for today, it remains a family business with a long tradition in tailoring and menswear retailing. The owner, Warren Gold, runs the business with his son Jamie and a staff of experienced and well versed individuals. Warren is one of the pioneers of the fashion revolution in menswear that took place in the 1960s. Together with his brother David he opened his first Lord John shop in Carnaby Street in 1964 from where in just a few years they built it into the first ever national and international chain of modern fashion menswear outlets.
They not only took Lord John to all the major cities in the UK, but also to Europe and to the USA. With Lord John, Warren also created the first retail brand in fashion menswear, “Lord John of Carnaby Street.” In his persona as Lord John, Warren was a prominent member of the 60s and 70s London scene along side his equally famous customers, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, The Kinks, Donovan, Engelbert Humperdink, Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, The Small Faces and very many others of the day. Warren, his Lord John shops and his ever changing innovative designs were rarely out of the fashion pages of the newspapers and magazines. Both leading manufacturers and retailers from around the world would come to Carnaby Street just to try to emulate the Lord John look in their own ranges and stores.
At a very early age Warren discovered that he had a particular interest in and flair for fashion. These factors, combined with his innate design skills, the influence of his father’s menswear retail experience and an instilled philosophy of always providing good value, good service and quality merchandise, injected originality and personality into the somewhat stale menswear industry. Later, after he sold the business to a public company, he again found himself in the role of pioneer retailer. Well before anyone else, again with his brother David, he op

Arguing staff - nothing Classic

, more than 2 years ago

I went here today. I was greeted by an arab man wearing a t-shirt and jeans. As I proceeded to browse the store, he was having a shouting match with another member of staff. This was extremely off putting. The store itself feels more like a glorified market place. The suits are all in racks coving all the walls - most feel second hand. I was so disappointed by this. The suits felt either old fashioned or excessively modern. there was nothing classic. The prices were nothing to write home about. The suit i tried on had a price tag of just under £80, which is very reasonable, however when looking at the cut, nothing that could not be gained for a similar price online with the likes of Burton/H&M/Asos. I was merely abhorred by the staff argument, who, although working ins a suit shop, were casually dressed and seemed to think it was appropriate to shout at each other about 'respectful speaking'. I would suggest to Mr Gold, that his staff should be dressed suitably for working in a tailoring establishment and to train staff to be attentive to the customer experience. I felt like I wasted my time. I though this place had a fantastic reputation, because of jingles and adverts I heard on certain London radio stations, I could not be more disappointed and surprised. I would like to lastly underscore that the atmosphere of the shop is not of an outlet of a tailors, rather a 'rejects' shanty stall. I would like to suggest that management order the suits bette, not just according to size, but also according to colour and visit some of the more refined tailors in Jermyn street or Sloane Sq and organise their store, as much as possible in that fashion. I would also like to suggest a development of the Classic Suit, not merely old-fashioned or uber-modern. If you want a cheaper suit find some F******* establishments across London.
