(NEW YORK) Alexander McQueen returns to its Savile Row roots in a new partnership with H. Huntsman and Sons, Buckingham's royal tailors since 1849. In June, Alexander McQueen by Huntsman will offer up a men's bespoke service to clientele perusing the stacks at the McQueen Bond Street boutique. For its inaugural run, expect the same Victorian-inspired influence seen earlier this week at the Alexander McQueen Men's Fall 2012 presentation: single-breasted dinner jackets, Prince of Wales checked suiting (complete with breeches and silk-embroidered lapels), and cashmere frock coats.

This isn't the first time chez McQueen has tapped Huntsman. In 2002, the pairing joined forces for a short-lived men's bespoke collection, fusing the East and West End of London with avant-garde, sharply tailored pinstripe and herringbone suits. The current made-to-order line will be priced between $6,930 to $7,700 and will take up to 12 weeks to construct.
