Anda and Savile Row Bespoke outdid themselves yesterday, at the second The English Gentleman event. Held in the pavilion of Lord’s, there were dozens of suits on display from 19 different Savile Row houses. Most importantly, many of them had spent the time and money making the suits for the models, so the fit was impeccable.
For those that have never had the privilege of visiting it, it is hard to describe the quiet majesty of the Long Room at Lord’s (above). Beautiful raised chairs, enormous sash windows, with a few other spectators and a white picket fence between you and some of the best sport in the world.
Highlights among the suits included Chittleborough & Morgan’s peaked-lapel worsted grey, and the Anderson & Sheppard linen worn by everyone from John Hitchcock to Dougray Scott.
Indeed, for all the shimmering styling of the suits on the models, some of the best dressed were the guests, with Michael Browne of C&M wearing his navy seersucker and both Anda Rowland and Audie Charles from A&S in beautifully coordinated outfits. If anyone wants to know how to wear tailoring without appearing stiff, look no further than these two when they’re in a jacket.
