If you’re in London between June 17 and July 17, you won’t want to miss Huntsman Presents: Gregory Peck, Style Archive of an Icon. The in-store exhibition dedicated to the actor documents his relationship with Huntsman, the made-to-order clothing store, over five decades.
Mounted in cooperation with Peck’s son, Anthony, and daughter, Cecilia, there will be clothing, photographs, and more, even a Peck playlist to ponder and enjoy.
Peck appeared in two films scored by Dimitri Tiomkin, Duel in the Sun and The Guns of Navarone, and in the Tiomkin-produced Mackenna’s Gold.
Peck’s patronage of the Savile Row tailor shop established in 1849 comprised of more than 160 orders, for both motion pictures and his personal life.
Other Hollywood stars made the pilgrimage, ranging from Clark Gable to Paul Newman. Recent films showcasing Huntsman classic suits include two spy films, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Body of Lies.
