Suits Intro The Prince of Wales

A bespoke, tailored suit feels more natural, looks far better and will last longer than a factory-made, ‘off-the-rack’ equivalent. At Henry Herbert, we would go so far as to say that wearing a suit which is not tailored to fit means missing out on an essential experience.

We offer an affordable, bespoke suit tailoring service, and will help you find the perfect fabric, cut and style for your bespoke suit. We promise you’ll never want to wear a factory-made suit again!

We can even travel to you by scooter! Contact us for appointments or more information.

Hard-Working Wool

Tailor’s Notes
A grey Prince of Wales suit made for a young gentleman in London. An everyday business suit needs a great, hard-working wool — but one that is still finely-cut to offer a tailored finish.

The Construction
Made from a medium wool, this suit was made and cut in England. As much of it as possible was hand-tailored. A suit such as this takes 8-9 weeks to make, unless you opt for our Express Service. We have a halfway baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth is from Holland & Sherry. The jacket has working cuffs and the buttons are made out of horn.

The Flannel Suit

Rugged Sophistication

Tailor’s Notes
During the winter, a wool suit can feel like tissue paper. Put on flannel, however, and the cold will not penetrate. Sometimes a flannel suit is all you need—just throw on a scarf and you’re good to go. A flannel suit carries a sense of ruggedness and durability; down to the stitching, everything is exaggerated and it just looks better. It’s still refined, it’s still sophisticated, but it’s not your regular business suit anymore.

The Construction
Made from an English spun flannel, this suit was made and cut in England. As much of it as possible was hand-tailored. A suit such as this takes 8-9 weeks to make, unless you opt for our Express Service. We have a halfway baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

The Three Button Suit

A Retro Touch

Tailor’s Notes
One, two or three buttons? Two-button suits tend to be fairly standard these days, though three-button jackets aren’t uncommon and can add a touch of retro to your look. The three-button suit can add some traditional elegance and style. While you’re probably not going to wear one often, they make for good statement jackets for special occasions. But remember: make sure you’re not fastening every button. For the three-button suit, fasten the top and middle buttons, or just the middle one—but never only the top.

The Construction
This suit was made and cut in Britain, and as much of it as possible was hand-tailored. The jacket was canvassed. A suit such as this takes 8-9 weeks to make, unless you opt for our Express Service. We have a halfway baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

The cloth is an English-made wool from Holland & Sherry. The jacket has working cuffs and the buttons are made out of horn.

The Chalk Stripe Suit

An English Classic

Tailor’s Notes

The Brown Suit

You Can Bet on Brown

Tailor’s Notes
It used to be a fashion commandment: “No brown in town.” Thus, businessmen would robotically wear grey or navy every day. Well, that rule, like a lot of rules, has been parcelled up and tossed out the office window. And today, a suit in tobacco, copper, or coffee has gone from ‘kind of stuffy’ to ‘sharp and modern’.

This suit was made and cut in England, and as much of it as possible was hand-tailored. The jacket is canvassed. A suit such as this takes 8-9 weeks to make, unless you opt for our Express Service.

Beat the Blues

Tailor’s Notes
Here, one of our customers dons the blue suit as you’ve never seen it before. Traditionally, it’s the most conservative colour—but not when you’re riffing on it like this.

The Cowboy Cut Suit

Unusual Swagger

Tailor’s Notes
A very unusual suit for a young hotelier in London. The suit jacket is finely-cut and is matched with a pair of ‘boot-cut’ trousers. This is a special case, with a customer who knows exactly what he wants. The remarkable result is testament to the fact that with bespoke, there are no rules—just preferences.

The Windowpane Suit

Classic Business Ensemble

Tailor’s Notes
A beautifully presented three-piece suit, with a strong window pane pattern sitting on top of a classic charcoal wool. As a two button suit, it would sit elegantly on its own—but the waistcoat adds a classic finish. With working cuff buttons and a striking pair of shoes, it is a suit sure to catch the eye in the City.

Details
Made with a cloth of kings: a Super 160’s with cashmere, but built to last! The silk bubble lining finishes the suit beautifully.
