The Huntsman 1919 Collection
Huntsman and sons took residency at 11 Savile Row in 1919, turning the page on the original Bond Street location for a fresh start after The Great War in the world’s most famous sartorial destination. It is also the year in which the latest action-packed Kingsman movie, The King’s Man takes place. Due for release in August 2021, the latest installment is a prequel, revealing the birth of the secret society of The King’s Men, at the start of the 20th Century.
1919 is also the year that the British Military Intelligence Organisation established The Government Code and Cypher School, the now well known GCHQ. Its overt function was and is still to protect British Government communications, with a secret mission to decrypt messages sent by foreign enemies.
Since then, our fitting rooms have been graced by numerous personalities of the british espionage world, dressing the likes of Ian and Peter Fleming, Peter Ustinov, Desmond Llewellyn, Fitzroy Mclean, Patrick Leigh Fermor, without forgetting Kingsman alumni Mark Strong in “Body of Lies” and “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” with Colin Firth. To celebrate our glorious secret service heritage we have designed an exclusive selection of luxury accessories and gifts inspired by Huntsman in 1919.
