Savile Row is a street in the Mayfair district, famous the world over as the home of men's high-class tailoring. Savile Row was created with the development of the Burlington Estate in 1695. The street name itself can be traced back from Lady Dorothy Savile, the wife of the 3rd Earl of Burlington. No.7 Savile Row was the London address of Phileas Fogg, protagonist of Jules Verne's classic adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days. The offices of The Beatles's Apple Corps were at 3 Savile Row; they performed their last live gig on its roof in 1969. In Japanese, men's suiting are called "sebiro", presumably a shortening and Japonification of the street name.
