Savile Row is a very special Coffee Table Book. I bought it as a research on my diploma thesis and how Savile Row influenced British fashion. It is very informative because it presents the modern Savile Row Tailors as well as the traditional ones and there are many pictures behind the scenes. Bespoke tailoring is a very British Thing, every man who can afford a suit like that goes there because they have the best garments, cuts and they still sew everything in London, not somewhere in China. You can watch the tailors work and see how your suit is made. I think thats very special and the book shows that. It also shows who the customers are – Prince Charles and James Bond have their suits made here as well as many celebrities like David Beckham and Sean Connery.
If you get the chance to visit London – You have to go to Savile Row and browse through the famous shops of Gieves & Hawkes, Alexander McQueen and Ozwald Boateng. And if you can afford it get a suit. It will be the best fashion investment of your life. I promise you.
