“ Casual and formal apparel for men and women. „
"Savile Row" fancies a sophisticated shopping experience, but the reality is a street/flea market. My experience with them was ridiculous. Buying a shit online, after my credit card was authorized by my bank, HSBC, Savile Row delayed my order and contacted me asking me to further identify myself and to call my credit card company for more information. The reason? My credit card billing address was not the same as the shipping address. My situation- living in both London and New York, is known by my credit card company, and they authorized this transaction for this reason- the CC company knew both addresses and told SR electronically they wold be paid. Savile Row is treating me like some lowlife who can spend an hour or more of time satisfying some busybody clerk. So, if you're sitting at home idle, and want to buy an overpriced shirt that has a fanciful London name to it, then these may be your guys. But if you're busy and/or traveling, and need a shirt sent to your location, then head to the nearest shopping mall- it will be faster than dealing with these lowlifes.
After much hesitation I decided to purchase a formal shirt from here.15 working days later I have YET to expect it!No U.S tracking numbers or info or anything just someone saying I"should be expecting it" and "sorry for any inconvenience" may be different in UK but in US you can get a handle on shipment.Whenever I receive it I don't think I will be a repeat customer, as I will not have shirt for formal event on time.Don't go through same situation!
As someone who has to wear a suit, shirt and tie for work every day, then I am always on the lookout for somewhere I can get these essentials for a little bit cheaper than from a tailors or an expensive suit shop, but still at made with good quality. And I think I have found it, so let me share.
I know that some people are wary of buying clothes online as you can't fit them on. To be honest I would not buy a suit online, as personally I always need adjustments made to my suit trousers, but if you are the sort of person who fits into all suits, then nothing to stop you buying from this online retailer. I have bought a number of shirts from Savile Row and am very happy with the price and quality.
I like a double cuff on my shirts, as I like wearing cufflinks. Savile Row offer you the option of single or double cuffs on all their long sleeved shirts. It is also possible to have the length of the arm adjusted and they offer a range of 15 inch to 18 inch lengths, with lengths increasing by half an inch.
There are several styles of shirt available - classic, fitted, short sleeved, casual and slim fit. The prices for these shirts range from the cheapest in the Sale section being £15.00 (at the minute, but this can often change) There is also the Gold Label Collection. Shirts here cost £69.00 and are made with superfine 300 thread yarn count. Very luxurious and worth a treat. The cotton is very very soft and easy to iron on the Gold label collection shirts, but also with the standard shirts.
The shirts themselves also have styles within styles. There are the poplin shirts, herringbone shirts, button down collar oxford shirts, rounded collar shirts as well as all the various types of check and stripe. There is a very good range of styles and tastes catered for.
These range in price, but there is nearly always a sale on. They also email you regularly to let you know about different offers, which are always very tempting! In fact I just bought three shirts yesterday (which prompted the review) and for all three it cost £60, with the cheapest being £15.00.
They also sell good quality cufflinks which are available at a good price, ranging from £16.00 to £20.00. You can also get a cufflink and tie matching combo priced at £30.00.
There is a large range of ties available as well, again coming in a variety of styles and colours. They all seem to be priced at £14.00 at the minute which is quite competitive.
Savile Row also offer a wide range of casual clothes, such as polo shirts, jumpers and underwear. Their boxers are some of the most comfortable I have ever had, very soft!
Their delivery service is very good. Post and packaging is £3.95 or you can get special delivery for £9.00.
I would definitely recommend them. Savile Row produce good quality shirts and accessories and are cheaper than their online competitors.
Here's a great place to go for shirts, ties, cufflinks, jumpers shoes and suits.
I have bought shirts, ties, jumpers and cufflinks from here several times, and have been nothing but totally delighted with my purchases.
First up - the shirts come in several styles, classic, short-sleeve and casual. They are made from good quality cotton. The business shirts boast the following features:
Generous, 'classic' cut
Traditional split yoke and long tails
Classic, over-stitched collar with integral collar bones (except white tab collar)
Additional collar bones supplied with shirt (except white tab collar)
Shaped breast pocket
Secure 'lock-stitched' buttons
Crease-resistant 100% cotton
Wash at 40°
You can order single or double cuffs. For an extra £5, you can have non-standard sleeve lengths, one or two inches shorter or longer then normal. Collar sizes go from 15" to 20".
They wash and iron beautifully, and feel lovely to wear. Cotton shirts are cool in summer and comfortably warm under a jacket in winter.
The base price is £50 a shirt, but there are almost always offers on. Often this is half price: I have in 2008 paid as little as £14
and had a wide selection available from which to choose.
The ties come in a big range. These are well made silk ties, which go well with the shirts. They seem to go down well with the ladies, too!
Ties cost £35, but are often available for £17.50, and I got some at £13 in 2008.
Cufflinks, like ties, are imaginatively patterned - you need to take a look at the website, rather then me describe them. The pictures on the site are accurate, and you are not disappointed when the goods arrive.
Best deal of the lot was cashmere jumpers, down from £180 to £45 only recently.
Service is good. You pay about a fiver for delivery and it arrives quickly. Even better, returns are free, and you have 90 days to make up your mind.
2009 update. If you buy from Savile Row online, then they will e-mail you offers, unless you choose not to receive these. Some of these have been awesome, the most recent one being two shirts for £30 with a free tie. OK, you have to pay postage on top, but that's still saving £100 on their quoted RRP, and at least £50 on the normal prices.
Now what are you waiting for?
