Mayfair's finest establishments

Savile Row: A cut above the rest

Synonymous with fine tailoring, cutting edge fashion and catering for Royalty – not to mention the likes of Winston Churchill and Lord Nelson – Savile Row in Mayfair is the go-to place for bespoke suits of the highest quality.

Emerging as a prominent shopping street as early as 1731, it was due to men like Beau Brummell, who frequented Savile Row during the 1800s, that it became known as an international centre for the absolute best in men’s tailoring, a reputation which is still upheld today.

The 1960s saw The Beatles move into their Apple offices at number 3 Savile Row, the roof of which played host to an impromptu farewell concert in 1969.

Offering the highest quality in men’s tailoring and craftsmanship, there are many prestigious tailors, each with specific house-styles and trademark cuts you cannot find anywhere else. Take Huntsman for example, who have catered to film and television personalities, as well as members of the Royal family!

Huntsman’s distinctive style, distilled over a period of 160 years is one of many innovative design techniques undertaken by various tailors on Savile Row, which, in addition to producing a comfortable, tailored suit, helped shape new silhouettes and styles immediately recognisable as that of Savile Row.

For bespoke cuts as functional as they are dapper, visit any one of the tailors on Savile Row, Mayfair. Each tailor draws on unique styles and methods, reinforced by decades of tradition.
