In what has to be one of the weirdest promotions we’ve ever seen, Savile Row tailor Huntsman is offering a night for two on their hard ass floor.
The event is being billed as a sleepover in one of their fitting rooms, which is a room where clients change in and out of their clothes while trying on custom garments. The floor, which is carpeted and likely dirty, can be your king suite for the princely sum of thousands of dollars. Remember, this is for a night on a hard ass floor.
At the Sotheby’s auction page, the current bid is going for $3,500. Which is a little more than half the price of a Huntsman sport coat. Or almost the price of two pairs of Huntsman trousers. Except, instead of being able to wear bespoke clothes from one of the world’s finest tailors, you get about twelve hours on a hard ass floor.
You do get to bring a friend, however. And the two of you will be provided with linen-lined, cashmere blankets, which they’ve wrapped over like the two ends of a flour tortilla for a bean-and-cheese burrito, so they can legally call these sleeping bags. I mean, they are technically bags because they’ve sewn the ends together. And you will technically try to sleep in them. But you won’t be able to because you will spend a night on a hard ass floor.
In the morning, should you and your bleary-eyed compadre survive, you will both be treated to breakfast at Isabel’s Restaurant in Mayfair, which is owned by one of Huntsman’s clients. This is assuming you don’t fall dead asleep at the table. Because the night before, you tried to sleep on a hard ass floor.
The auction can be found online at Sotheby’s website. There are 19 hours left in the auction, which is a little more than the time you’ll spend on a hard ass floor.
