Creators of unique bespoke suits for exceptional men and women, the master tailors of Savile Row have dressed the famous and infamous from all over the world, satisfying demand for the Row's touch of elegance and eccentricity. Icons of Savile Row's past include: Admiral Lord Nelson, the Duke of Windsor, Sir Winston Churchill, Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, and John Lennon. Costumers today demonstrate the Row's spectacular diversity: the Princes William and Harry, Mick Jagger, David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Pete Doherty, to name a few.The book, written by James Sherwood is a portrait of modern Savile Row, and contains detailed information on London's premier tailors, including images of Savile Row past and present. It presents both the style and story of a street that continues to inspire fashion: Ralph Lauren, Gianni Versace, Calvin Klein, and Tom Ford have all walked the Row while Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen were trained there.
