Savile Row Concours is back – and better than ever!

Savile Row Concours is back – and better than ever!

David Gandy with some fans on Savile Row today

Patrick Grant and David Gandy were top of the bill when the second Concours on Savile Row kicked off in style today. After a successful debut last year, initial signs are that the second edition will be even more popular. Patrick Grant, the man in charge at Norton & Sons, talked animatedly about his enthusiasm for Made in Britain and David Gandy entertained the crowds with his love of motor cars and the success of his Wellwear clothing business. The two-day event, which continues tomorrow, brings together the world of luxury tailoring and the finest collector cars you could hope to see. With Savile Row closed to traffic, the public are free to stroll among the cars on display as well as enjoy the craftsmanship from the expert tailors. More than 40 world-class cars are on display, from pre-war thoroughbreds to the latest electric hypercars. The event starts at 10am and finishes at 8pm on each day and there will be tours of tailors available. Several big names in the car design and tailoring worlds will be speaking on the main stage, and there will be live music too.
