About us

Charlie Baker-Collingwood

Charlie Baker-Collingwood

Henry Herbert Tailors handcraft the finest bespoke suits and shirts. True to the highest standards of traditional Savile Row tailoring, we use the finest fabrics, the finest tailors and, hopefully, the finest service.

It was set up by me, Charlie Baker-Collingwood (pictured). Customers are welcome to visit us or we are happy to meet clients, wherever and whenever is good for them, with our custom built Vespa’s. We are a small firm and we work hard for our customers.

A common question I am often asked is “where were you trained?” Our tailors have a rich history of tailoring. I myself, apart from being a fully qualified motorcyclist, am also a tailor too. At first I learnt from others – watching them at work and involving myself. I have since cemented this, learning jacket making at Morley College (London), Trouser & Waistcoat making at Central St Martin’s and sewing skills at City of Westminster College, where I obtained my City & Guilds qualifications.

But just who is Henry Herbert? Henry Herbert was once master of the royal wardrobe to both King Charles I and King Charles II and the name was resurrected by me, Charlie Baker-Collingwood (pictured), in order to continue the tradition of fine English tailoring, at affordable prices. As bespoke suit tailors, Henry Herbert is proud to support the “Pick Your Cotton Carefully” campaign as well as other industry campaigns to ensure high ethical standards.

I hope we have answered some of your questions but, should you wish to ask anything else, however big or small, you can always contact me directly at charlie@henryherbert.com.

DON’T ASK US, ASK THEM!

Absolutely blown away with the level of service. I have used this tailor several times now and they make sure that you are absolutely happy with your alteration before charging you. I must give a special recommendation for William. He has been very courteous and thoroughly professional with a precise eye for detail- you can tell he loves what he does. 5 star service and client care.

Charlie exceeded my expectations in every regard. With a welcoming and personal atmosphere in his rooms, the service was professional and forthcoming at all times. Most importantly, the shirt he crafted is simply stunning, fits perfectly and advanced to be my favourite shirt by far. I can only highly recommend Charlie’s services.
