Published to celebrate 175 years as one of the finest tailors on Savile Row, Huntsman reveals its rich history of making impeccable clothing for the most discerning clientele in the world

Huntsman was founded in 1849 and is still famous today as one of the finest—and most innovative—bespoke tailors in London. Huntsman’s clients range from royalty to film stars, and include Queen Victoria, Clark Gable, Grace Kelly, Coco Chanel, Hubert de Givenchy, Bill Blass, Lucien Freud, Brad Pitt, Elizabeth Taylor, and Edward Enninful, to name just a few. The brand also served as style and location inspiration for the Kingsman films, starring Colin Firth and Taron Egerton. As well as its history, the book reveals each stage of ordering and making the perfect bespoke suit, which involves 80 hours of hand work, and a practical style guide for anyone who wants to know what to wear for the right occasion. Sumptuous photography by Simon Upton illustrates the quintessential town, country and holiday settings in which one might wear Huntsman

With a foreword by Dame Glenda Bailey, former Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar, an introduction by veteran style writer, Nick Foulkes, and a sparkling text by author Tom Chamberlin, editor of The Rake magazine, this is an essential and inspiring guide on how to dress to perfection
