The Building

The Beatles purchased 3 Savile Row in the summer of 1968, quickly installing a studio in the basement. Following the Let It Be sessions in January 1969, it would go on to host the recording of albums including Harry Nilsson’s Son Of Schmilsson (1972), Tim Hardin’s Painted Head (1972), Ringo’s Ringo (1973), George’s Living In The Material World (1973), Roger Daltrey’s Daltrey (1973) and Badfinger’s Ass (1973). The building would remain under Apple ownership until 1976. In 2013, US clothes brand Abercrombie & Fitch attempted to open an outlet at 3 Savile Row much to the outrage of the street’s heritage tailors.
