George Brummell History
George Brummell, the Englishman of Fashion known as "Beau" Brummell and famous for his friendship with the Prince of Wales (later King George IV), was the undisputed leader of fashion at the beginning of the 19th century.
George Brummell was born in 1778 in Downing Street, London. He created the then fashionable style of men’s dress, with perfectly fitted and tailored individually made bespoke garments.
This look was based on dark coats, full-length trousers rather than knee breeches and stockings, and, to complete the look, immaculate shirt linen and an elaborately knotted cravat.
George Brummell is credited with introducing and establishing as fashion the modern men's suit, worn with a necktie. He was the epitome of a ‘beau’ or ‘dandy’, paying particular attention to his physical appearance, and claimed to take five hours a day to dress. This meticulous style of dress and personal presentation was referred to as dandyism.
Tailoring has been associated with Savile Row since the 19th century, when George Brummell, who epitomised the well-dressed man, patronised the tailors congregated on the Burlington Estate, notably around Cork Street. By 1803, some were occupying premises in Savile Row.
Brummell's name became associated with elegant style and good looks, and he gave advice to the future King on how to dress.
Following in the tradition of George Brummell for perfectly fitting and tailored, individually made garments, George Brummell Bespoke Tailors in London aim to be the iconic bespoke tailors of the 21st century.

Bespoke Tailoring Service
※We offer a comprehensive choice from hundreds of the highest quality fabrics, mainly from English and Scottish mills and supplied by Savile Row's top cloth merchants.
※He will take approximately 20 measurements of the client, from which he will cut a paper template using an intricate cutting system.
※The item is then trimmed using the highest grade materials possible, from the inside body canvasses to the linings, from horn or mother of pearl buttons to matching silk twist for the hand-made button holes.
※The inside canvas is called a loose canvas, forming a 'soft shaped' mould which the tailor needs to take particular care making up because it needs to retain its shape for as long as the coat is worn.This is very different from the usual construction nowadays which sticks the canvas on to the cloth using heat treatments and glue, which means they are unable to retain the shape and style which is associated with Savile Row.
※In addition, when clients change shape it will not be necessary to make a new template because we can alter the existing one; please
be aware that our suits incorporate inlays that allow outfits to be made bigger by 3 inches (7.5 cm) to cater for the expanding waistline.
※This very labour-intensive process will take a minimum of 60 working hours to complete. We pride ourselves in our product, using traditional and reliable construction methods to produce an individually made suit by hand which exactly meets the needs and demands of our clients.
※The customers who custom more than 10 sets of suits , we will provide the door- to- door service for you.
