Why this word?

When it comes to shopping, a few streets in the world are quite noteworthy: Rodeo Drive, the Magnificent Mile, Fifth Avenue. But for the particularly sartorial-minded (“sartorial” coming from the Latin “sartor,” meaning “to tailor”), Savile Row in London is home to some of the best suit makers and tailors in the world. Suits purchased at the street’s legendary shops can easily cost more than $10,000 each.
