Gieves & Hawkes sees sales boost

Gieves & Hawkes has bucked the downturn with the Savile Row tailoring business notching up double digit growth over the past twelve months at its bespoke division.

Gieves & Hawkes deputy executive chairman Mark Henderson told guests at a breakfast held by Walpole, which represents British luxury businesses, that sales of bespoke suiting had been driven by customers wanting to impress at the office or for job interviews, according to a report in The Independent.

Overall UK sales at Gieves & Hawkes, which has 20 stores and concessions in the likes of Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, are up single digits over the past year, Henderson said.

He added: “Since September, our tailoring sales have not missed a beat, and if anything, they are pretty damn strong at the minute.”
