Like many of the tailors on the Row, Huntsman has a distinctly old-school charm about it but it is a business that many use through generations. Once a pattern is created, it is regularly altered to meet the changing needs and shape of a client. They even keep the patterns after a client dies and hang them in the ceiling as a memorial. Often a family member will come in and say they want the same cut or cloth as a relative and so the patterns live on.
Outside Hunstman sat not only the E-Type, but the new Bentley Mulliner Bentayga Outdoor Pursuits. It wasn’t all about classic cars: as well as the Bentley, a new Czinger 21C hypercar was hosted by Norton and Sons, the McLaren Artura made its public debut with Oswald Boateng, a Morgan Super 3 was outside Dege and Skinner and of course the latest Aston Martins were displayed in front of JP Hackett.
