Savile Row: The English Gentleman

The finest tailors on Savile Row celebrated ‘The English Gentleman’. And what could be more fitting than a presentation that displayed British style and sensibility at the Lords Cricket Ground.

The Long Room, said to be the most famous room in cricket was set with models on stools for viewing the gentleman’s sport of cricket. Dark khaki, tan and shades of cream in wool, hounds tooth and herringbone complimented the historic hall. The Committee Room, as its name suggests, showcased the formal standards of tailoring. Which are: clean, crisp silhouettes. The classic grey suit, Prince of Wales check and pale blue wool illustrated the classics are about quality materials and attention to detail.

The pavilion benches overlooking the beautiful grounds weren’t filled with spectators; however, they were the focal point for the phenomenal craftsmanship on display. The gents were dapper in a variety of attires fit for a British summer’s day; creating a colorful exhibit. Breathtaking hues of blue in flannel, wool, basket weave and hopsack; a solid display of slim fitting wool whites infused with bespoke cricket blazers and sweaters made sure the models were looking the part of a summertime gent.

British tailoring is still the standard to meet in my opinion and The English Gentleman certainly showed why. The details, the cut, the weight and the fit; with a mix of cricket and craftsmanship, the quintessentially British style will always remain ahead. Here are some photos taken by Maria Scard as we attended the presentation.
