Tailoring in London is big in the fashion industry. Savile Row in Mayfair is known as the ‘golden mile of tailoring’ and is the perfect place for the finest London bespoke suits with made to measure London suits available from this renowned fashion area. This short street is home to some of finest London tailors. In the 19th century Beau Brummell patronised other tailors in the nearby areas and opened an entrance at the back of his father’s tailors, and ever since then tailoring has been associated with the area, with Beau Brummell being called the “Founder of Savile Row”. The term ‘bespoke’ is understood to have originated in Savile Row when cloth for a suit was said to ‘be spoken for’ by individual customers.
If you are in the market for a bespoke suit, you will need to undergo approximately 30 measurements in 3 or 4 visits. Patience is key.
