As American audiences get reacquainted with the Crawley family and the rest of the players on "Downton Abbey," a hedge fund manager is getting somewhat more involved with the hit series.
GLG Partners co-founder Pierre Lagrange has bought famed tailor H. Huntsman & Sons with his boyfriend, Roubi L'Roubi. In addition to running a bespoke shop on London's famed Savile Row, Huntsman has provided the costumes warn by Hugh Bonneville in his role as the Earl of Grantham on "Downton Abbey," as well those worn in the 2011 spy thrilled Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
L'Roubi, a fashion designer, will become Huntsman's creative director. He said he was "proud and privileged to be able to uphold the tradition of supreme craftsmanship" at Huntsman. The shop, which opened in 1849, has served the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Winston Churchill, Bing Crosby, Laurence Olivier and Ronald Reagan.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
