Official book description:

Creators of unique bespoke suits for exceptional men and women, the master tailors of Savile Row have dressed the famous and infamous from all over the world, satisfying demand for the Row's touch of elegance and eccentricity. Icons of Savile Row's past include: Admiral Lord Nelson, the Duke of Windsor, Sir Winston Churchill, Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, and John Lennon. Costumers today demonstrate the Row's spectacular diversity: the Princes William and Harry, Mick Jagger, David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Pete Doherty, to name a few. The book, written by James Sherwood is a portrait of modern Savile Row, and contains detailed information on London's premier tailors, including images of Savile Row past and present. It presents both the style and story of a street that continues to inspire fashion: Ralph Lauren, Gianni Versace, Calvin Klein, and Tom Ford have all walked the Row while Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen were trained there.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
