Welcome to the March Issue Of The Huntsman Gazette, our first instalment for 2022. Spring has certainly startled to settle in on Savile Row, and with it, the promise of warmer weather and of course, the start of the Social Season!
After two years of disruption and distancing, many of us are looking forward to getting back to those pastimes we hold so dear. But may we suggest allowing ample time to ensure your wardrobe is looking its best.
If you’re heading to Royal Ascot in June, now is the perfect time to take out your morning wear and give it a once over. Whether it's a simple press and clean, some restorative alterations or maybe you’re in the market for a new outfit, Huntsman is here to help!
Finally, with much anticipation and after months of waiting, The King’s Man hit U.K. cinemas on December 26th. If you haven’t already seen it, you’re sure to discover plenty of Huntsman bespoke tailoring. With period wardrobes for the picture’s leading men, Ralph Finenes and Harris Dickinson. Eagle-eyed viewers may also spy another familiar face- Once again, our very own leading man, Campbell Carey makes a cameo to critical acclaim!
To celebrate the launch we recreated the infamous window display featured in the film which, as a prequel to the previous two instalments, is set in the 1900s. It wasn’t just Huntsman that enjoyed a vintage revival for filming, indeed all of Savile Row was transported back in time.Discover more about Huntsman and Kingsman here.
And be sure to check out the instagram interview series featuring Campbell Carey in conversation with The King’s Man costume designer Michelle Clapton.
The King’s Man isn’t the only foray into film that has Huntsman over the course of the last year. The Outfit, is a new crime thriller set to hit cinemas later this month. It stars Mark Rylance, as Leonard Burling, an English tailor, trained on Savile Row, until a personal tragedy displaces him to Chicago,operating a small tailor shop in a rough part of town where he makes beautiful clothes for the only people around who can afford them: vicious mobsters
For the picture Huntsman acted not only as bespoke tailor, but Campbell Carey also closely consulted with the team to ensure accuracy and authenticity. In preparation for his role, Mark spent several weeks with Campbell learning everything that goes into making a bespoke suit. From striking and cutting, to the intricacies of hand sewing, Mark was a devotee to the process, and could often be found standing alongside Campbell at his board, or making tea for the tailors in the basement.
The Outfit is in cinemas from March 18th. Look out for Campbell in conversation with Mark Rylance and Costume Designer Sophie O’Neill about his experiences both on and off set.
It’s a thrill to be returning to the races once again! For those of you enjoying the Cheltenham Festival later this month will surely also have Royal Ascot marked in the diary. It is a day of such excitement, and one which requires no less than sartorial excellence.
This year, we invite you as we get Royal Ascot ready, with appointments available now to refresh and rejuvenate your morning wear! What’s more, Huntsman will be sharing our top tips and tricks for making the most of your time at Ascot.

Stop by the window at 11 Savile Row and you’re sure to spot something different- moving images! We are putting ourselves firmly in the 21st Century with video screens flanking our window display in the side windows.
A tailor's shop window has always been a tool with which to gain notoriety. From the newly appointed warrants of European royalty etched on the glass, and the intimacy of a half cloth curtain erected to disguise a dashing duke visiting within- today our windows are far more transparent, designed to welcome you inside.
In the latest technological update, these screens can provide what even the most elegantly executed mannequin cannot. A glimpse at how your bespoke suit is made, the way the cloth moves, feels and wears, and the craftsmanship of our team of Cutters and Tailors, in action!

Few hunt coats would make it to 61 seasons, and very few would withstand the notorious clay that sits beneath Warwickshire hunting country for that number of years. But this one, a Huntsman piece from 1961, tells a different story; a story of meticulous craftsmanship and inherent sustainability.Learn more about this story in the journal.
