See how Huntsman celebrated Concours last year, here.
The Huntsman Bentley
A new phase of the collaboration, following the success of the Bespoke Huntsman Bentley Bentayga in 2019, Huntsman is excited to announce a new collection in their ongoing partnership with Jack Barclay.
Working with Bentley Mulliner; the bespoke coachbuilding division of Bentley, two new bespoke vehicles are available exclusively through the Jack Barclay dealership.
Launching at Savile Row Concours on the 23rd Of May, these cars epitomise the very best of craftsmanship, engineering and the beauty of a bespoke lifestyle.
Huntsman & Heriot Watt University
In January of this year, Huntsman Head Cutter & Creative Director Campbell Carey returned to his roots.
Huntsman partnered with Heriot-Watt University and Huddersfield Fine Worsteds in a tweed design project that saw Campbell return to the college of which he was a student some 25 years ago.
Third Year students studying for a Design for Textiles degree were tasked with creating an original cloth collection. The winning design will be produced in a full 60-metre length, from which Huntsman will create the winner a bespoke garment.
Now we’re very excited to announce the winning student. Lois Cowie, 22, from Buckie in Morayshire in the north-east of Scotland, found inspiration from the sandstone tenements of Glasgow. Before weaving samples of cloth on the school’s looms, she built the design virtually using computer modelling software for weavers that was invented in the Borders.
“What’s particularly remarkable is that the students have really only had two years to learn and get up to speed with weaving, which isn’t easy, as it’s a very time-consuming process. But we could really see the hard work and passion of the students coming through.”
- Campbell Carey
Introducing The Coronation Tweed
This year, the legendary Huntsman Tweed Competition returned for 2023 with royal objective.
To commemorate the coronation of King Charles III, Huntsman invited you to design a tweed fit for royalty, in a competition to find Huntsman's official Coronation Tweed.
Applicants could download one of Huntsman's exclusive templates, unleash their creativity, and submit their masterpieces by tagging #huntsmantweed2023 on social media.
The winning entry will be transformed into a full bolt of cloth, from which the winner will receive their own bespoke experience, and the tweed will be available by commission, to Huntsman clients.
We had designs flooding in from around the world, and this year the competition was tougher than ever, but we're glad to announce our winner!
Ben Harries grabbed our judges' attention, with his careful, subtle use of colour. The resulting tweed looks deceptively simple, but when studied, you'll see more than five separate colours culminate to create this striking design.
Keep following us for more updates on the Coronation Tweed, as it goes from concept to creation, and check back in later in the year, when it is available for bespoke commission!
Events At The Huntsman Club
See what's been happening in the clubroom at 11 Savile Row
A Dinner Celebration of Royal Ascot
Earlier this year we hosted a Royal Ascot dinner at the Huntsman Club. Our guests were treated to a four-course meal by The Ledbury and exquisite wine and champaign pairings by Billcarte Salmon.
The evening proved the perfect opportunity to showcase the latest morningwear designs from Campbell Carey, including a new cashmere-stripe and houndstooth trouser, as well as beautiful examples of classic morning coats, and grey three piece morning suit.
Of course, no evening in the Huntsman Club would be complete without a whiskey tasting; artfully executed by Johnathon Driver of William Grant.
It proved the perfect occasion to set our sights firmly on the festivities of June and check that our morning wear wardrobe is in order!
You can see more of our bespoke morning wear here, as well as discover our ready-to-wear offering.
Then British Fashion Council Breakfast
We were delighted to host the British Fashion Council as chair of our Huntswoman Press Breakfast in February.
B.F.C. C.E.O Caroline Rush was joined by Huntsman Head Ladieswear Cutter Magdalena Handwerker, fashion journalist and creative director Susan Bender Whitfield and founder of Ethical Era, Florence Kollie Raja for a panel focused on sustainability in luxury womenswear and featured a model presentation of the Huntswoman Of Tomorrow collection.
Caroline Rush, and each of our panellists wore a different iteration of the signature jacket, further demonstrating how versatile and uniquely different each look is. You can learn more about this project and see the entire collection here.
The Tweed Luncheon: Fit For A King!
This year, to celebrate the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and commemorate this momentous occasion we invited you to design a cloth fit for royalty, in a very special edition of the Huntsman Tweed Competition.
The winning tweed design will be produced as a Huntsman exclusive 60 metre bolt, from which the winner will have a bespoke jacket created. The remaining cloth will become one of Huntsman's signature 'Coronation Tweed', available only to Huntsman clients.
Having received designs from around the world, and following a public vote, the final decision was left to Huntsman's Campbell Carey and an esteemed panel of judges.
Over an informal luncheon, Campbell was joined by Nick Foulkes, Catherine Haywood, Emily Carter and Taj Phull to choose our esteemed winner. Read More about this years competition here.
Our latest campaigns and collections for bespoke and ready-to-wear.
Introducing Sping-Summer 2023
Our new ready-to-wear collection launches with two new signature suits, and easy-to-wear styles of summer shirting.
In designing the new collection for spring-summer 2023 Huntsman Head Cutter and Creative Director had his sights firmly set on the art of dressing for those great summer events, soireees and weddings. Because finding the perfect suit for such occasions is often difficult, Campbell focused his attention on the cut, cloth and construction. The result, is two distinct suits, both equally suited to those memorable moments.
The suits make up part of a comprehensive collection of jackets, trousers and exquisitely lightweight linen shirts, this season in a new collarless style. Cut in our classic shirting block, in punchy red or blue stripes- these new style shirts are the epitome of luxury leisurewear.

Huntsman Bespoke Ladies
“Bespoke tailoring is all about empowerment. In design, it defines the modern Huntswoman; she’s elegant, she’s resourceful, she’s creative and she’s timeless. This is not only a testament to the almighty power of bespoke tailoring but also an inspiration to all female clients; this is how you can make your wardrobe work for you.”
- Magdalena Handwerker, Head Ladieswear Cutter.
The Huntswoman Window Takeover
Did you spot our female-focused window rebrand?
To celebrate the launch of our latest bespoke ladies campaign, the window at 11 Savile Row went through a mini-transformation.
Our signature gold-foil lettering, unchanged for decades was switched overnight and "HUNTSWOMAN" had more than a few passers-by stop to do a double take.
Of course, as those in the know will tell you, Huntsman has been creating bespoke garments for ladies, since 1849, and our legacy of extraordinary women's tailoring is every bit as integral to our business, as its male counterparts.
Now, for May at least, it is given its rightful namesake in our window display.
