In 2007 Abercrombie & Fitch opened its worldwide flagship in the Savile Row, London's historic fine tailoring district. The flagship resides in a English Heritage listed building originally built as a home in 1725. The structure has been altered over its nearly 300-year history, yet architectural features from remain, including the building's original staircase and the vaults from its incarnation as a branch of the Bank of England.
Although some shoppers find the shop too dark, music too loud, perfume too strong, and staff too naked, the flagship is alway frenzied as one of A&F's only European stores. Other locations include Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Italy, France, and Spain.
