Saville Row

also Savile Row, fashionable street in London, noted for its tailors' shops since at least 1870; hence, metonymically,  "fashionable tailoring," by 1893. The street name itself dates to mid-18c. and is names for the aristocratic family that formerly had an estate nearby. It was a fashionable neighborhood early 19c., which might have attracted the tailors.
