Read full description of the books:
A "Savile Row suit" is universally understood to be the best one can possibly get. There can be few other streets in the world that have become such a byword for excellence. Yet how did this come about? One tailor more than any other is responsible—Henry Poole & Company. Carefully researched and beautifully illustrated, Henry Poole chronicles the evolution of Savile Row as well as encompassing a social record of Britain's emergence to international prominence.
Author Stephen Howarth cleverly interweaves the various threads of the Henry Poole story with people and events to make this a truly fascinating history.
Through the doors of Henry Poole's shop and onto the pages of this book stride an impressive array of emperors and entrepreneurs, kings and courtesans, princes and politicians, crowned heads and cowboys, aristocrats and authors, gangsters and grand dukes, Hollywood stars, hoteliers, and war heroes—each bringing something special to this story.

Read information about the authorStephen Howarth was born 8 years after the end of the Second World War. Nevertheless, in his writing on the war years and before, he displays an unusual talent for describing past events as they appeared to those who took part, not simply as matters of dates and places.
Increasingly noted as a naval historian, Howarth's previous books are "The Koh-I-Noor Diamond" (1980), "The Knights Templar (1982)", "Morning Glory: the Story of the Imperial Japanese Navy 1895-1945" (1983) and two books co-written with his father, the naval historian David Howarth, "The Story of the P&O" (1986) and "Nelson: The Immortal Memory" (1988).
