For ages the British gentleman has been a cut above others when it came to his dress. While some may attribute it to his valet’s care of his boss’ wardrobe, it’s actually due to the world-respected designers along Savile Row in Mayfair, with Huntsman & Sons serving as the crown jewel. The winner of this 2018 live auction package will not only have the perks of having their African safari look-tailor made, they’ll also accessorize it with gold that an elephant would envy. And while in town, stash the diet the evening you and your guest dine at Annabel’s. Yum! Check out the details below.
Huntsman Savile Row And Patrick Mavros**
Iconic Savile Row Bespoke Tailoring firm Huntsman & Sons has collaborated with world-renown African jeweler, Patrick Mavros to create the ultimate African Safari ensemble. The lucky winner and a guest will hop across the pond to London and visit Huntsman at their legendary Savile Row establishment. There the winner will be measured for a bespoke safari suit by their Head Cutter. You’ll then be dined by Huntsman Chairman Pierre Lagrange at the exclusive Annabel’s private members club in London.
To complete the look the winner will also receive the much sought after Elephant Hair Bangle, Cufflinks, and Dress Studs handmade in 18ct yellow African gold by Patrick Mavros. Representative of brotherhood, virility and wisdom, the Elephant Hair Bangle was first brought to the West by Clark Gable, as the ultimate design of male adornment and was believed to have magical power. Gable wore the now famous Elephant Hair Bangle during the filming of “Mogambo,” dressed by Huntsman.
This experience is complete with a three-night stay at the world-famous Claridge’s London in a Deluxe King Room with English breakfast each morning.
