If your clients won't be heading to London until the summer but need a Savile Row suit much sooner, they should head to Chicago's Waldorf Astoria or New York's Pierre Hotel this month for the Gieves & Hawkes trunk show. They'll be able to enjoy bespoke tailoring, bespoke shoes and, for the first time, made-to-measure suits and shirts as well as a selection of accessories, all straight from No. 1 Savile Row, London.
While customers will have more than 3,000 types of fabrics from around the world from which to choose for their unique suit, we're most impressed by the $40,000 Vicuna suit. The cloth keeps the wearer warm in winter and cool in summer—perfect for New York's extreme temperatures!
Bespoke shoemakers carréducker will be on hand to create contemporary leather shoes starting at $4,000. Customers can choose a style or have a design created for them; the shoes are handsewn and delivered with bespoke shoe trees. (We hear the Mayfair collection in triple-A grade box calf is tops.)
The trunk show will offer made-to-measure tailoring and shirts, with over 2,000 tailoring and 600 shirting cloths to choose from; as well as a selection of ready-to-wear ties and accessories.
The Trunk Show will be held in New York's Pierre Hotel on March 22 and 23, and in Chicago's Waldorf Astoria on March 19 and 20.
