As a part of Put This On‘s third episode from the second season, host and menswear aficionado Jesse Thorn heads to London’s legendary Savile Row to spotlight the city’s tailoring industry. Linking up with historian Peter Berthoud, Savile Row’s evolution from 16th century manufacturing is explained in detail while expert tailor Richard Anderson speaks on his time at London’s renowned Hunstman, and Norton & Sons director Patrick Grant touches on the city’s roots as the center of men’s fashion in the early to mid 1900s. Finally, the superiority of the Savile Row suit over the ready-to-wear offerings now dominating the menswear arena is highlighted by the three gentlemen.
