London Suit Tailoring, the Best of the Best

No longer are clothes purely functional, providing warmth and protecting modesty, clothes are now fashion statements, a projection of an individual’s perceived self. This applies particularly to the ever popular suit, which, more than any other garment, is seen as an expression of one’s individuality and status. Made-to-measure London suit tailoring and bespoke suits, in particular, exemplify this concept of expression by offering superb quality and unique styling; these meticulous techniques have raised the tailoring bar of excellence.

The true birth of bespoke suit tailoring in London is generally, with some justification, claimed to be the ‘child’ of Lady Dorothy Savile. For it was she, who, in the eighteenth century, gave her name to the iconic street Savile Row! The row was originally built to house the gentry, usually military officers who were most determined to maintain and project a dashing appearance. So it was that Savile Row soon received the accolade as being ‘the golden mile of tailoring’. The concept of fashion had well and truly arrived in the UK!
