About Savile Row
For almost five hundred years, this quiet and civilised street in Mayfair has played host to generations of the most talented artisans, lovingly dressing gentlemen and ladies of taste in some of the finest bespoke clothes the world has ever seen. From Winston Churchill to the Duke of Wellington, and from Fred Astaire to Elton John, the countless list of statesmen and celebrities to have graced the Row goes on. Named after Lady Savile, the wife of the 3rd Earl of Burlington, the road was built between 1731 and 1735, and is justly famous as the home of men’s tailoring. It is the only road in the world that is synonymous with this form of clothing and – delightfully – is so well-known that in Japan the word for a suit is ‘sebiru’, a corruption of ‘Savile Row’.
Every Savile Row suit starts life as a two-dimensional length of superfine suiting cloth, transformed over time to fit the customer precisely to his requirements, fulfilling entirely an individual’s vision for their own clothes. Every suit is unique, made to the customer’s exact measurements, drafted into an individual paper pattern from which his chosen or ‘bespoken’ cloth is cut. The suit will then be handmade, with the cloth shrunken, stretched, pressed, stitched and structured into a perfectly form-fitting three-dimensional garment.
