Bespoke: Savile Row Ripped and Smoothed is the true-life story of a boy who quit school to become an apprentice on Savile Row, home to London’s most venerable tailors, and wound up owning his own Savile Row house (Richard Anderson, at 13 Savile Row) on the world-famous ‘Golden Mile’, where he hand-cuts exquisite suits for a clientele including royalty, politicians, literati, business tycoons, and media stars.
Witty and told with great candour, Bespoke is a fascinating behind-the-scenes exposé of life on Savile Row from one of the world’s most celebrated and successful tailors.
