A classic Huntsman suit is easy to identify. Renowned for the elegance and perfect proportions of its slim line, single button designs, it’s little wonder that England’s World Cup-winning team of 1966 donned bespoke Huntsman suits for the occasion. Over the years, it has also garnered a reputation for its gorgeous house tweeds,which have been woven on Scotland’s Isle of Islay for the last 80 years. Unusually for a Savile Row tailor, Huntsman also offers a women’s bespoke service under the guidance of dedicated cutter Anette Akselberg.

Although Kilgour has been established on the Row in one form or another since 1882, the company is often noted for its modern aesthetic. Under brothers Fred and Louis Stanbury, who introduced the technique of a structured chest piece to Savile Row, Kilgour became the toast of Hollywood, with the likes of Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison and Frank Sinatra clamouring to get their mitts on the brand’s incredibly elegant silhouette. More recently, former creative director Carlo Brandelli inspired a new generation, ensuring that the Kilgour suit has remained a coveted must-have.
