Huntsman teams up with luxury car showroom Jack Barclay
Savile Row tailor Huntsman has joined forces with the world’s oldest Bentley dealership to create two limited-edition variants of the Bentley Bentayga car.
Huntsman and the Jack Barclay Bentley showroom said their partnership highlights their synergies, with both brands having a showroom in London’s prestigious Mayfair district. Additionally, both Huntsman and Bentley Motors are celebrating a centenary this year.
The result of their collaboration is two Huntsman Bentley Bentaygas, The Sportsman and The Businessman, which feature distinctive Huntsman tweeds throughout the interior, including the Peck 62 pattern inspired by an original Gregory Peck coat from the tailor’s archive.
The SUVs also come with a bespoke wooden chessboard in the rear seat rest, complete with a drawer trimmed in Huntsman fabric. Huntsman and Jack Barclay logos are embroidered into all seat rests.
And buyers of both variants will receive a bespoke jacket designed by Huntsman, with the option to choose from a variety of cloths and tweeds to make the garment unique. The jackets will feature a lining made exclusively for Bentley Motors in celebration of their partnership.
Huntsman owner, Pierre Lagrange commented: “We are delighted to work with Jack Barclay celebrating Bentley’s centenary and Huntsman’s 100 years on Savile Row. Bentley espouses the timeless British values of authenticity, bespoke craftsmanship and attention to detail, all of which Huntsman embrace in each tailored suit we create for our clients.”
Stefan Sielaff, director of design at Bentley Motors, added: “The personalisation work we do at Mulliner is about bringing a vision to life – like creating a perfect tailored suit – so adding an element of bespoke Huntsman material to the Bentayga’s lavish and beautiful interior is a perfect fit.”
