Bespoke Harris Tweed Suit

Tailor’s Notes
A Henry Herbert suit, made with the ‘mystical’ Harris Tweed. A finely cut suit that looks striking on the young man wearing it – Marcus Jaye, Creative Director of The Chic Geek. The remarkable Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world that is governed by its very own Act of Parliament, 1993. The Act ensures that all cloth certified with the Harris Tweed Orb complies with the definition in the Act.

The Construction
Made from a lightweight tweed, the suit is made and cut in England. As much of the suit as possible is hand tailored. As with every suit we make, unless you choose our Express service, the suit will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting, before the suit is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth was from British made cotton, with working buttons and horn buttons.

Harris Tweed Shooting Suit

Tailor’s Notes
Henry Herbert Tailors were privileged to make this Harris Tweed shooting suit for a gentleman in the south west of England. The fabric is heavy, but magnificent, and we were delighted to make a tailored waistcoat and sailor’s tab collar on the jacket for those cold shooting days.

The Construction
The customer bought the cloth directly from the weaver in the Outer Hebrides. He returned to London and presented us with the cloth and asked us to make a three piece shooting suit for him, with matching trousers too. After eight weeks and various fittings, the ensemble was finished.

Details
A heavy and waterproof tweed, robust enough to endure cold days of stalking and keep his master warm.

Bespoke Shooting Shirt

Tailor’s Notes
A Henry Herbert shooting shirt, handmade in England, for an Austrian customer. We used a set of special fabrics from Acorn Fabrics, in Lancashire. They are one of the last remaining English shirting fabric companies left in the country.

The Construction
Over a dozen upper body measurements were taken by our shirt makers so that the shirt was a perfect fit. We did this in order to match the precise contours of the shoulders with the customer’s preference for cuffs & collars . It took four weeks to make.

Details
Every Henry Herbert shirt comes with removable brass collar bones, mother of pearl buttons and each one is finished with the finest single stitching. Our shirts are from £140.
