Modern menswear, no matter the niche, has no shortage of destination-worthy shops. But London's Savile Row, home to some of the sartorial world's most iconic temples of tailoring, is particularly special. Tailors took to nearby Cork Street in the late 18th century and migrated to the now-famous Savile Row beginning in the early 1800s, cutting and sewing luxurious custom suits by hand to a customer's precise size and specifications. The street hosts some of the world's finest tailors to this day, from legendary shops that have been in business for more than two centuries to newer shops with little history but plenty of skill. Below are a select few with particularly compelling histories, though they are by no means the only tailors deserving of attention; every shop on Savile Row is impressive in their own right, and all are worth visiting should you ever find yourself in the area.
