The traditional British Bespoke suits originated in the 19th century from the same place where Ashish & Pawan of Knights & Lords have trained in their craft of making Custom Suits, Savile Row – London, a place where the first Bespoke Tailors set up shop and inevitably gave birth to the Quintessential British Bespoke Clothing. In 1860, Kind Edward VII was said to have placed a custom suit order with one of Savile Row’s best and the first Bespoke Tailor – Henry Poole & Co. – for a tailless smoking jacket cut from fabric traditionally used for the more formal tailcoat. This gave birth to the act of commissioning tailored suits where you could design your own custom suit as per your own specifications and personal preferences. Today this street in central London’s Mayfair, called Savile Row where Ashish & Pawan of Knights & Lords Dubai have trained from, remains the preserve of the highest excellence in bespoke tailoring in the world.
While the double-breasted tailored suit is undoubtedly an invention of the British, it is the single breasted suit – with a single row of buttons down the front – that is often referred to as the classic British tailored suit style. Set apart from other forms by its contoured and fitted look, the traditional British Bespoke Suit cut harks back to its origin in the practice of hand-cut custom suits from Savile Row, the spiritual home of bespoke tailors Ashish & Pawan of Knights & Lords.
