As part of the ‘Savile Row and America: A Sartorial Special Relationship’ exhibition that took place in Washington DC on May 14, 2015, Gieves & Hawkes revealed its unique, modern interpretation of the classic driving jacket. Commissioned by Bentley Motors, the jacket celebrates the heritage and artistry that both Bentley and Gieves & Hawkes represent.
No.1 Savile Row Head Cutter Davide Taub created the garment that was later displayed at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Washington DC. In bringing Bentley and Savile Row together, the jacket showcases the best of British craftsmanship and performance today, along with the rich heritage and storied history of the two brands. This partnership highlights two luxury businesses that share a history of handcrafted detail, and who both continue this tradition of uncompromising quality into the twenty-first century.
The Jacket will return to London and will be on display at No.1 Savile Row during London Collections: Men, June 12 to 15, 2015.
