In a move befitting the House of Lords, Bentley Motors has teamed with four leading Savile Row design houses to reinterpret the classic driving jacket. The designs, which are to be displayed in a special exhibit in Washington, D.C. called "Savile Row and America: A Sartorial Special Relationship," are to jackets as Bentleys are to automobiles: one of the classiest things on the road.
The jackets were commissioned by Bentley to "celebrate the heritage and history that Bentley and Savile Row represent" and to carry on the historical connection between driving and fashion.
The event where the jackets are being displayed is an invite-only affair at the British Ambassador's residence in D.C., so unless you have some major connections, you won't be viewing these in person anytime soon. Want to own one of these? You'll have to go to London and commission one yourself, since they're specially handmade. Yeah. These jackets are really one-of-a-kind.
McQueen would have loved these jackets.
Brett Williams is an editorial assistant at Supercompressor and isn't even close to fancy enough for one of these jackets.
