Saville Row Banner.jpg

True bespoke tailoring

WHAT makes a Savile Row tailor different from any other? Training and a passion for making fine clothes. Some may be less practical than others, some may concentrate upon fittings or cutting or may manage everything. Some are not in the Row itself but are part of its fraternity. But they all desire to create clothing individually measured, fitted, made and finished for the individual customer. And they are backed by the traditions and ambience that has been built up in the Savile Row area over a couple of centuries.

That's what makes them special.
