British Sartorial Excellence in London's Most Stylish Street

      
London at Park Lane, England

Savile Row – located in the heart of Mayfair and just a short walk from Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane – is synonymous with traditional and bespoke men’s tailoring. Known to sartorialists the world over, ever since its first shop opened in 1785 the area has been the destination of choice for the finest made-to-measure suits, which take can each take up to 80 hours to complete. Its craftspeople throughout the years have been favoured by many a famous name, be it the great and good of Hollywood or the British aristocracy. Three of the four suits worn by the Beatles on their iconic Abbey Road album cover were made in Savile Row, while tailor Henry Poole is credited with introducing the dinner jacket or tuxedo.

Now home to both established names such as Hardy Amies and Gieves & Hawkes as well as younger talent such as Ozwald Boateng and Thom Sweeney – based out of nearby Gilbert Street – London’s most stylish area continues to be a bastion of British tailoring. The Concierge team at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane can arrange visits to the tailors as well as organize tours of many of the ateliers located on Savile Row.
