Men's Business Panel
Transcript of Men's Business Panel
attitudes toward their clothes.
Men are more aware of fashion;
they're not afraid of it." Carlos Campos Perry Ellis Joseph Abboud Nautica Savile Row is a street in Mayfair London and it is the home of bespoke tailoring.
The first tailor appeared on Savile Row in 1785.
The row is filled with individual houses, all who have their own unique style. Work on Savile Row Tailors learn the old fashioned way, by working one on one with an apprentice.
Takes five years to learn the basics.
"If you can hold a needle, you can hold a job."
The work force is shrinking, with fewer and fewer high quality tailors, so the Savile Row Academy was started to train the future elite tailors in genuine bespoke standards. Problems on the Row As big name companies like Abercrombie&Fitch move in, rent goes up, and the tailors may be forced out.
Young people don't appreciate the high quality tailoring nowadays and turning a profit is getting tough.
However, the clients they do have stay for life. The tailors will travel the world to meet with their elite clients. The Basics Savile Row has fitted royalty and old Hollywood glamour, such as Clark Gable and Carry Grant. Napoleon himself was fitted with Savile Row bespoke. Churchill came for pinstripes. Valentino came for riding britches. •J.Crew Group, Inc. is an American multi-brand, multi-channel, specialty retailer
