Savile Row is the world's iconic address for the best in bespoke tailoring, and home to legendary Gieves & Hawkes, suppliers to the British military for more than two centuries and furnishers to elegant gentlemen today. The company began by designing attire for Britain's most illustrious officers, including Admiral Lord Nelson and The Duke of Wellington, as well as ten generations of British royalty, from King George III in 1809 to Princes William and Harry today. As masculine attire evolved after World War I, Gieves & Hawkes added civilian clothing to its repertoire, applying centuries of expertise in creating hand-made garments-proportion, cutting, fitting, and quality fabrics-to the finest bespoke tailoring. This volume traces the rich history of tailoring, drawing from Gieves & Hawkes' vast, unpublished archives of client ledgers, garments and accessories, and photographs. Including today's bespoke tailoring and ready-to-wear collections, this is an indispensible book on classic men's style and fine tailoring.
