Kingsman at Huntsman
Huntsman served as the inspiration for Matthew Vaughn’s blockbuster movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. During an appointment with his cutter, Vaughn, taken by the history on display at 11 Savile Row, imagined moving beyond the walls of the fitting room, with the legendary premises acting as a smokescreen for his team of spies, the Kingsmen.
Vaughn, who first visited our fitting rooms at 18 years of age, has a long relationship with Huntsman. Upon reaching that milestone age, his mother brought him in for his first bespoke outfit, urging her son to consider only Huntsman for proper suits! The experience made a lasting impression on Vaughn, and he has built an enduring sartorial rapport with the Huntsman team over the years. When Huntsman was acquired by Pierre Lagrange, executive producer of Vaughn’s movies since Stardust, the story of Kingsman at Huntsman gathered momentum and never looked back! Very alert viewers will recognise Huntsman’s Creative Director and Co-Head Cutter Campbell Carey in a cameo role in the movie’s tailoring rooms.
