This tour will last just over 2hours, and stay largely on Savile Row. We might not be covering that much ground, but Cindy will have plenty to talk about - introducing you to the history of British tailoring in the Golden Square Mile of menswear.
The tour will explain both how bespoke suits are made and how British tailors, royals, military heroes and celebrities have together set many of the prevailing fashions for Western men for hundreds of years, going back to the seventeenth century!
