Is John Phillips London real?
While a bespoke suit from Huntsman starts at $8,000, a ready-to-wear iteration in “Gregory Peck Tweed,” for instance, will still cost at least $4,000. Anthony and Zack Peck, respectively the son and grandson of Gregory Peck who had his suits made exclusively by Huntsman, attended the dinner.
The starting price for a suit by these graduates is $15,000 – a bargain, Ramroop insists, compared to one bought directly at Maurice Sedwell, where just the trousers cost that much. (A Maurice Sedwell ultra-bespoke suit can range anywhere from £4,000 to £6,000. )
Though Amies sold the business and retired in 2001, the company is still operating from No. 14, now under the control of Fung Capital. Modernisation of tailoring continued in 1969 with Nutters of Savile Row.
Women may have Milan and Paris but London is undeniably menswear’s global capital and the most important street in this world is Savile Row, a modest Mayfair row of the men’s tailors that quite simply make the best bespoke and made-to-measure suits in the world – so much so that today, the Japanese for suit is “sabiro” …
There is no street in the world that boasts such a rich sartorial heritage as Savile Row, where some of the best British brands reside. Built between 1731 and 1735, it today houses no less than 21 individual tailors, some of which have been there well over a century.

Nice suit. John Phillips, London. Whether or not the dark suit sported by Hans himself is one of his two from the prestigious (but ultimately fictional) John Phillips. Hans Gruber’s dark charcoal suit is very contemporary to its 1980s setting, not surprising for a man so interested in fashion and image.
