Young Ladies About Town
The girls living and laughing their way around London, meeting lots of fascinating folk along the way...
Savile Row Style
Yesterday, right in the middle of London Collections: Men, I found myself at the regally splendid Spencer House in St. James's.
There the bespoke tailors of Savile Row, along with London's best shirt makers and hatters, presented the modern face of elegance. And gosh, did they do it in a dashing fashion!
Staged as a series of still-life sequences, the dapper models were found by fires in shooting coats, sat decadently at dinner in formal dinner suits and reading in the library in velvet.
Anderson & Sheppard, Antony Sinclair, Bernard Weatherill, Davies and Sons, Dedge and Skinner, Ede and Ravenscourt, Edward Sexton, and Gieves and Hawkes were all represent, between them covering everything from white tie glamour to shooting wear.
So whether your chap is a discerning dandy or you just want a Downton-esque gent in your life, Savile Row is clearly still place to go.
