Tailoring

There is no fabric more integral to the tailoring industry than wool. As one of the oldest materials known to mankind, the inherent natural properties of wool have long been used to craft garments to the body, and through technical innovation and manufacturing developments, it remains a go-to no matter the season or style.

Tradition Reinvented

Despite mounting interest from consumers in the traceability of garments, there are very few brands that can lay claim to an in-house supply chain – from farm to fashion, as it were – given the complexity and expense inherent in managing all areas of the business. For Paris-based luxury menswear brand Cerruti 1881, it is a source of pride and opportunity for creative freedom that the bulk of its fabrics are developed exclusively by Biella textile mill Lanificio Fratelli Cerruti.

Shoot: Process of hibernation

There are few streets in the world that evoke such a sense of storied tradition as London’s Savile Row. As the home of British tailoring, the street in the capital’s Mayfair district is revered the world over for its unparalleled approach to bespoke tailoring, Palladian architecture and hordes of well-dressed men.Tailors began populating Savile Row and some of the surrounding streets late in the 18th century, with Henry Poole credited as being the first to officially open on the strip when he expanded his father’s tailoring business, one that still exists today. The term itself – bespoke – is said to indicate that a piece of clothing is to “be spoken for” by an individual customer, some of which have, over the course of history, included the current Prince of Wales, Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson and Napoleon III. In this ongoing series of profiles, we introduce the stars of Savile Row: the tailors, cutters and makers behind bespoke suiting, an important and enduring part of the global menswear market.
