In the gilded age of emperors, maharajas, courtesans and kings, Henry Poole & Co. dressed them all. For well over two centuries, Savile Row’s founding father was a Mecca for the men and women who made history. Presidents, prime ministers, generals and Russian grand dukes recognized Poole’s as the apex of elegance. The firm has endured wars, revolutions and financial crises to emerge as the tailor for the tech giants and hedge fund billionaires who rule the world in the 21st century.
Henry Poole & Co. celebrates the great names in Poole’s history and tells the story of this exceptional British tailoring firm still owned by the founding family.
