Savile Row is a street in Mayfair, central London, running between Vigo Street and Conduit Street. Built between 1731 and 1735, it was named for Lady Dorothy Savile. In the 19th century it became known for its tailors and developed a reputation as the London destination for upper class gentlemen’s outfitters. Whilst none of the original shops remain today, it is still famous for its tailors and a Savile Row label is a mark of a suit of the highest class. Some famous Savile Row tailors include Gieves and Hawkes, Hardy Amies and Henry Poole & Co.
