Making men look their finest since 1906.
MAKING MEN LOOK THEIR FINEST SINCE 1906
• WORDS: C. STEWART
Savoy Taylors Guild first opened its doors over a century ago on London’s prestigious Strand with an aim “to supply high-grade outfitting for men, in commodious surroundings, giving honest value and exercising an unceasing effort to satisfy the wishes of its customers”.
This grand vision still stands today with modern men following in the steps of generations before them by counting on Savoy Taylors Guild’s brand of understated luxury to outfit them for business and leisure.
In the brand’s early days, Edwardian gents were delighted at the wide choice of the very latest styles they found in Savoy Taylors Guild stores. Today, its edited collection of modern menswear classics is crafted from highest quality materials with over a century of tailoring heritage stitched into every piece.
Every Savoy Taylors Guild suit is made from pure wool sourced from the very best British and Italian mills with softly milled finishes typical of heritage English fabrics. Likewise, patterns stick to British classics like Prince of Wales checks and fine pinstripes, but always with understated, modern appeal.
Hallmarks of traditional English tailoring are Savoy Taylors Guild’s signature, with boldly coloured torso linings, striped sleeve linings and luxurious trimmings straight out of the Savile Row playbook.
Another tailor’s touch is every suit jacket’s half-canvas construction. Adding this foundation layer to the shoulders and lapel enhances the form of the upper part of your suit and allows the cloth to drape properly. What’s more, it encourages the jacket to mould to your frame over time for a bespoke tailored look.
Craftsmanship is at the core of Savoy Taylors Guild tailoring and this extends beyond its suiting: elegant shirts come in a pure cotton cloth sourced from Italy for its smooth handle and natural lustre, while CEO-worthy ties are spun using traditional techniques in Italy’s Como, home to the world’s leading tie makers.
