Northamptonshire: 11th May 2023
Hagerty is proud to continue its partnership with the Concours on Savile Row, and will collaborate with Huntsman bespoke tailors throughout the event, taking place on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th May.

Huntsman is a bespoke tailor with an enviable history stretching back over 170 years, attracting notable clients including Coco Chanel and David Bowie with their beautiful clothing. To mark the collaboration a 1967 Ford GT40 and a 1991 Aston Martin Vantage X-pack, selected as the perfect vehicles to represent both brands, will be on display and, in addition, Hagerty and Huntsman will host a number of exclusive member and client events throughout the two-day concours.

The Concours on Savile Row was inspired by a long tradition of car manufacturers pairing with the craftsmanship of Savile Row, a central London street famed for bespoke tailoring. This unique setting offers visitors a rare chance to visit many famous tailors to witness demonstrations of craftsmanship throughout the two-day event.

The Concours display will be curated along Savile Row and entry is free to visitors between 10am and 8pm. More that 40 world-class cars will be displayed, from pre-war thoroughbreds to the latest electric hypercars, and many of the renowned tailors, shoemakers and art galleries will also be open to visitors.

A centre stage will form the hub of the event, hosting a number of live talks with automotive greats as well as live music. Hagerty’s UK Price Guide Editor John Mayhead will also host a chat with renowned classic car dealer Dylan Miles in the Huntsman lounge during the event.

Hagerty’s Senior Manager of Private Client Services, Dan Cogger will lead the Hagerty Youth Judging team, guiding a group of students from the City Lions project through the classics on display to choose a best of show.

Mark Roper, Managing Director of Hagerty International, said “the Concours on Savile Row is a wonderful event with displays of bespoke tailoring and wonderful cars in a central London location. I look forward to hosting existing and new Hagerty clients with our partners at Huntsman to create an unforgettable experience for our guests.”
