We go ahead with the surveillance of the spring collections. A few weeks ago, we wrote about how the tailor Cifonelli begun to offer a clothing line and today we’ll look at another tailor shop that since a couple of seasons back produces ready-made garments. These are historic Huntsman from Savile Row in London.
Huntsman is probably the tailoring is most known from Savile Row. It is known for a typical British silhouette with marked shoulder, high cut armholes and tightly tailored waist which gives a very formal hourglass shape. Jackets are usually much longer than, say, the Neapolitan or Florentine and do in our view, clearly the best in formal garments dark suit or tuxedo.
The clothing collection for spring marked course of a similar aesthetic although adjusted to be slightly more contemporary feel than the tailor normally associated with.
Cutting and sewing is done by hand and exclusively in the UK which is a nice detail that is far from the case with all skräddares clothing lines. Prices are therefore relatively high for the clothing but in comparison with the company’s tailored garments they land at less than half the price.
Company shirts are produced in collaboration with another British company, namely Emma Willis and ties and other accessories are exclusively from the same group of islands.
New Creative Director for the season, Campbell Carey and his goal was to offer Huntsman Customer a versatile collection of staple goods for the British summer wardrobe.
Below you can see a short video from the campaign as well as pictures of several of the key garments.
