Bespoke Suits

Suits Intro The Flannel Suit

A bespoke, tailored suit not only feels more natural to wear, it 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 a suit which is not tailored to fit perfectly is simply not worth wearing.

We offer an affordable, bespoke suit tailoring service, and will help you find the perfect fabric, cut and style for your bespoke suit or bespoke suits. We promise you’ll never want to wear a factory-made suit again! And we can even travel to you by scooter. Contact us for appointments or more information.

Bespoke Flannel Suit

Tailor’s Notes
During the winter, a wool suit can feel like tissue paper. Put on flannel and the cold will not penetrate. Plus, when it thaws out a bit, the flannel will keep you warm enough that you can just throw a scarf around your neck and you’re good to go. With a flannel suit, there’s a sense of ruggedness and durability. Down to the stitching, everything is exaggerated and it just looks better. It’s still refined, it’s sophisticated, but it’s not your regular business suit anymore.

The Construction
Made from an English spun flannel, the suit was 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
Made from a medium wool, the suit was 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.

The Bespoke Three Button Suit

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 a little extra 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, do up either the top and middle buttons, or just the middle one (but never only the top)

The Construction
Made with a canvass, the suit is British made and cut. 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 English made wool, from Holland & Sherry, with working buttons and horn buttons.

Bespoke Brown Suit

Tailor’s Notes
It used to be a fashion commandment: “No brown in town.” And so 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 ‘kinda stuffy’ to ‘totally cutting-edge’.
