Return to the Save Savile Row From Abercrombie & Fitch petition.

  1. Chris Guerin UNITED KINGDOM

    This would be a disaster for a great heritage and industry!

  2. Clare Powell UNITED KINGDOM

    There are so few roads and places like Saville Row left. Do we really want, never mind need, another Abercrombie and Fitch there? I strongly believe we don’t. Please don’t spoil this piece of History. Thank you, Clare

  3. A Reynolds UNITED KINGDOM

    This would be appalling for British heritage and tourism, and only encourage further chain retailers onto the Row.

  4. Kenneth Howe UNITED STATES

    Even from where I am standing (the East side of the Americas) I can see this as a horrid idea.

  5. Harry Gwynne UNITED KINGDOM

    This is a disgrace. There are so many other places in central London that A&F could have a shop. Reflects badly on them as much as anything.

  6. Thomas Barker AUSTRALIA

    A & F is McDonalds for the rag trade masses and must be treated as such. There is no place for cookie cutter mediocrity on Saville Row, the name itself is an icon for the bespoke and should remain so at any cost.

  7. Chris Tonks UNITED KINGDOM

    It shouldn’t even have got this far.

  8. Amelia Pettman UNITED KINGDOM

    Saville Row is Saville Row for a reason, if A&F move in it’s going to end up being like every other place in London

  9. Math C FRANCE

    Saville Row, elegance forever.

  10. Danil Sauthier SWITZERLAND

    I’m come from Switzerland and I think is unacceptable for Savile Row. Abercrombie and Fitch makes these clothes in Asia for few pounds. The workers of Asia make a t-shirt in one minutes…
    T-shirt and jeans isn’t tradition of Savile Row. It’s the second time that England loses these values in the field of fabrics (the first time with the relocation of Burberry’s fabric).

    PS: Excuse me for my bad English, I don’t speak very well.

  11. Leah Disney SPAIN

    Please don’t ruin anything else with your trash, A&F…..

  12. Raffe Burrell

    preserve saville row!

  13. Beau Brummell UNITED KINGDOM

    How dare they impose their vulgar style and ghastly pecs upon Saville Row. Indeed upon England for that matter. Return from whence thou came Abercrombie and Filth.

  14. Rhiannon Schofield UNITED KINGDOM

    Savile Row is a part of history and a strong endorsement of our British Country and heritage. To place an Abercrombie and Fitch childrens store within the Savile Row street is an insult to the hard work, determination and craftmanship that has been produced over the vast period of years. This store cannot be situated amongst the great heights of Savile Row. It will crumble and all that will be left to say is, I told you so.

  15. James Eric Parker UNITED KINGDOM

    I want to keep Saville Row sacred

  16. Patrick Joseph Gray UNITED KINGDOM

    This simply can’t be allowed to go ahead. It’s an insult to everything Savile Row stands for, everything I stand for, everything Britain, dare I say, stands for. Tailors have been on the ‘Row since the 1800s, ”Beau” Brummell patronised the men there. This is the first bit of water (first flood, I ought to say) through the dam; and if this is allowed to go ahead, the ‘Row will be, in fifty years, filled with banal mass-produced American and European (more likely Chinese and Bengali, these days) clothes and another bit of Britain that has somehow, miraculously, survived all of the depradations of the last century or so up until now will be lost forever. Too much is gone now, so please spare Savile Row from the start of a decline that would be absolute.


    Short term (monetary) gain for long term loss (of integrity). Quantity over quality. Stop it. Now. Please.

  18. Samuel J. Barton CANADA

    Please resist the destructive inroads of A&F, lest hordes of obnoxious, boisterous, cologne-steeped, generic douches to descend on this lovely and proud area.

  19. Max Beatrix UNITED STATES

    Seriously, Stop this.

  20. Friedrich Schliephake GERMANY

    This petition is a very very good thing. People has to understand the importance of tradition and handcraft, especially nowadays.

    Best wishes from Germany to our british friends
