Now Reading: A Tailoring Studio in a Vintage Airstream by Huntsman
Written 12 months ago by
Huntsman, the renowned Savile Row tailor, recently launched its Huntsman Airstream Mobile Tailoring Studio in Pebble Beach, California. The first of its kind, the mobile tailoring studio will bring Huntsman’s exceptional bespoke tailoring service from London directly to the doorstep of Americans across the country.
The vintage Airstream creates a unique and innovative way to immerse the public in Huntsman’s legendary sartorial style, along with the opportunity to get greater insight into their iconic personalised tweed creation process.
Inspired by classic Americana and complete with patterns of famous patrons like Paul Newman, Katherine Hepburn, and Gregory Peck, the vintage Airstream, lovingly restored by Timeless Travel Trailers of Denver, brings the bespoke Huntsman experience one receives at 11 Savile Row to cities across America.
Balancing the traditional with the modern, the Huntsman Airstream Mobile Tailoring Studio allows an entirely new audience to tap into the elegance and craftsmanship that defines why Huntsman is widely considered the best of the Savile Row tailors. Those fitted for fully bespoke suits will have their order within ten weeks, the time required for perfection.
Upholstered in bespoke Huntsman tweeds with a bedroom that cleverly morphs into a full fledged fitting room, complete with the classic triptych mirror, the Airstream provides the full capabilities of the bespoke suit experience.
“I have always been an Airstream enthusiast and have spent many trips travelling the roads of America,” says Pierre Lagrange, Huntsman owner and chairman. “Mixing the quintessentially British bespoke that is Huntsman with an American modern icon like the Airstream is exciting and indicative of the new ways Huntsman is bringing the classic brand into the modern world.”
The Airstream will pop up throughout the United States over the next year, with planned destinations such as Burning Man, Denver, Augusta, Louisville, Houston, Dallas and Miami, amongst others, and is available upon request for those Huntsman clients wishing to participate in this unique, immersive bespoke travelling experience .
