In April 2008, The London Cut was invited to the British Ambassador's Residence in Tokyo by Ambassador Sir Graham Fry. The charming mansion, modelled on Sir Edwin Lutyens' Art Deco Washington Residence, brought a new mood to this third presentation of masterpieces by the master tailors of Savile Row. Curator James Sherwood invited Steve Lidbury Design - a Tokyo-based consultancy led by the eponymous British-born designer - to consider framing Savile Row in a Modernist mis-en-scene that reflected the timelessness of the bespoke tailor's art. A further ten pieces were cut especially for Tokyo to show all the disciplines of an elegant man's contemporary wardrobe including black tie, white tie, morning tails, shooting tweeds and a collection of blazers and flannels anticipating the 2008 film Brideshead Revisited. Archive pieces acknowledging the link between Japan and Savile Row were shown at the Residence including Henry Poole's Royal Warrant for the Japanese Imperial household (1923), order books relating to Prince Imperial (later Emperor) Hirohito and a rare 1930s Japanese Prime Minister's court coatee worn in the presence of the Prince of Wales (later Duke of Windsor). The event at the Residence was followed by a satellite exhibition at Isetan who gave The London Cut all of their windows and an in-store exhibition space also designed by Steve Lidbury.
