At No. 32 Savile Row, The Service is re-imagining craft, luxury, and bespoke tailoring in a contemporary lifestyle concept that provides a contemporary twist on the world’s finest textiles and tailoring combined with the Row’s first artisanal coffee shop.
The Service represents the spirit of bespoke tailoring and the highest commitment to craftsmanship and materials, while providing a dynamic platform for discussions and events on design, heritage, luxury and master craftsmanship. Enjoy Sipsmith cocktails while exploring embroidery demonstrations with Hawthorn & Heaney, and discover current collections as well as vintage textiles from the archives of Huddersfield-based cloth merchants Dugdale Bros, who have been supplying to Savile Row for more than a hundred years.
Henry Poole & Co. has been offering the very best in fine British tailoring since 1806. Now join them as they open their doors for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour with Managing Director, Simon Cundey – seventh generation of Henry Poole & Co. Discover first hand their cutting and fitting processes with demonstrations from Under Cutter, Charlie Button, and gain access to their historic archives dating back to 1846, with clients including Edward 7th, Napoleon 3rd and five Prime Ministers including Disraeli and Winston Churchill.
Spanning seven generations on Savile Row, Henry Poole & Co has come to define traditional tailoring with a modern approach. Having dressed industrialists Vanderbilt, and JP Morgan, as well as major cultural figures like Brahms Stoker and Sir Henry Irving, Henry Poole has created a classic aesthetic that spans generations by emphasising the traditional making processes that are the hallmark of bespoke tailoring, while embracing innovation – most recently with their use of new materials, such as Gore-Tex, in a daring re-imagination of bespoke tailoring.
H. Huntsman & Co.
At No. 11 Savile Row, H. Huntsman & Co has been setting the standard for bespoke menswear since 1849. Now, they open their doors to share the process and values that have distinguished them as one of the world’s leading tailors, with clients including royalty, Prime Ministers, business leaders and Hollywood stars.
Come experience the workings of one of Savile Row’s most historic workshops by learning about H. Huntsman’s elite craftsmanship approach, the cultural significance of its history and legacy, and the intimacy of its bespoke process, which spans not just weeks, but generations. And see how H. Huntsman is still tailoring its place in the modern age, for instance with an intimate first-hand look at the world’s only 11.9 micron 1PP graded wool, which many have called the finest wool ever produced.
Cad & The Dandy
Cad & The Dandy are seeking to redefine a modern approach to bespoke tailoring, and in a series of tours, join Founder James Sleater and Head of Ready-to-Wear, Oliver Mumby, to explore their bespoke operations at No. 7-8 and their new flagship ready-to-wear store at No. 13 Savile Row
Start at 7-8 Savile Row and experience a fully equipped contemporary bespoke workshop with master cutters and tailors working on client commissions as well as film and media projects, including the latest Hollywood blockbusters. In a series of guided tours and informal talks, they will show and explain the workmanship that goes into not only client pieces but also pieces for the big screen.
Explore the Cad & The Dandy’s new hand-made RTW collection, which is made entirely by hand, and experience Savile Row’s most modern and progressive approach to craft, which reflects not only the history of Savile Row but the future of bespoke tailoring for a contemporary market.
Dege & Skinner
Come along to No. 10 Savile Row to meet William Skinner, the fifth generation of Skinners in the bespoke trade, as well as their Head Cutter Nicholas De’Ath, who made the uniforms for the recently televised Royal wedding and Tom Bradbury, Savile Row’s youngest Head Shirt Cutter, known for his superb pattern matching on colourful summer shirts.
Dege & Skinner have long been a watchword of bespoke tailoring to the highest standards. Now, they open their doors to share their process and history. On display will be the stunning Tudor-inspired uniform of the Yeoman of the Guard, Her Majesty The Queen’s official bodyguard in England, as well as a replica of the Page Boy outfit worn by His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge for the wedding of Harry, Duke of Sussex to Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.
