Mr Black’s Wedding

Tailor’s Notes

Mr Black chose this classic three piece grey flannel suit as his wedding outfit and it really, really ‘suits you Sir’.

There is nothing like a stylish grey suit to make a young gentleman look the debonair groom. These subtle shades, contrasting with his tie and buttonhole give the air of effortless style – not over the top, but making the point that he has really thought about this memorable moment in his life. Mr Black is a very stylish young man and the grey tones bring out his exquisite elegance. The five buttoned waistcoat sits nicely on top of the trousers and some wedding jackets are just MEANT to be left undone.

The Construction
Made with a canvass, the suits are 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.

Wake up – it’s a beautiful morning!

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes

This will probably be the most important morning of your life so you will want to wake up to colour and light, whilst considering the ceremony of the day ahead. So, although you may wish for continuity with the morning or wedding suit itself, there are some exciting ways of mixing and matching the colours of the ties/cravats and waistcoats of the groom’s party. There are some beautiful lilacs, lemons, ivory and indigo colours to select – the world really is your oyster (another good colour) on this momentous occasion. A selection of subtle shades enables you to bring a rosy blush to the groom’s attire – to match the blushing bride!

The Morning Chorus

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes

This handsome groom does not need a choir with his colourful co-ordination. What a wonderful medley, with the mellow yellow, double breasted, collared waistcoat, subtly patterned tie and that titanic tartan! The traditional theme of the morning suit is only enhanced by the introduction of some of the groom’s own lyrics to a swan song of the predictable. An operatic masterpiece, without the drama! A real classic.

Morning has broken – into a wonderful day

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes

The morning suit can be as diverse as any other aspect of the wedding day. A subtle carousel of creams or ivories can bring a sunny splendour to the day. These subtle tones intertwine with the flowers for both the groom’s button hole display and the bride’s bouquet – a blossoming partnership! The angle of the bottom of the waistcoat fits smartly over the morning trousers – a look as relaxed as the groom – even if he’s not really!

Good Morning Sunshine

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes

Our ‘models’ are as genuine as their smiles. This lovely couple (well, the groom) are our actual Clients. Ivory is the infinite colour for a classic waistcoat and this double breasted sunny look is enhanced, not only by the contrasting tie and red rose, but also the contrasting dark colour of the suit itself. As usual, the groom has co-ordinated his look with his beautiful bride – a good step in the right direction of wedded bliss! Unfortunately, Henry Herbert can only take a little of the credit for this photograph of a blissful day – this couple’s smiles alone are worthy of their own toast!

Tailor’s Notes
Who said men should be invisible at weddings? Who said you have to quietly hold her purse? Try something bold like a beautiful blue suit. Just remember, you only want to wear one superstar at a time. The shirt, tie, and trousers should all be something to complement the suit – not compete with it.

Details
The cloth was from an English Super 130’s wool, with working buttons and horn buttons.

A ‘Seven Course’ Wedding

Bespoke Suits for an Italian Gala

Tailor’s Notes
Henry Herbert was privileged to make a wedding suit for this groom and the six suits for his six best men. The wedding took place in Italy and he chose a lightweight pure blue, English wool from Dugdale to cope with the higher Italian temperatures. Each man was measured individually and each pattern was cut individually, allowing us to cater for the variety of heights, shapes and sizes. They all looked terrific.

A Bespoke Double-Breasted Wedding Suit

Tailor’s Notes
The most important part of your wedding day (other than to make sure it is the most special day for your bride) is that you feel good. And perhaps there is no better way than a double breasted suit, in your favourite fabric (in this case Prince of Wales) accessorised with a smartly coloured bow tie or complimentary tie.

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes
The question is always a morning suit or a wedding suit. If you are unsure, ask your fiancée. As Hardy Amies says, “It is the bride’s day. It is, therefore, for her to decide what sort of wedding she wants.” And take your cue from her accordingly: meringue = morning dress/black tie/white tie, short white dress = suit, anything else = go crazy! “Morning dress” means single-breasted morning coat, striped trousers, shirt, tie and waistcoat (no exceptions).

As with every suit we make, they 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.

This cloth was from Holland & Sherry and the lining from Dugdales in Huddersfield. The cloth is 100% wool with working buttons and silk lapels.

The Brown Herringbone – New York, New Suit

Bespoke Brown Herringbone Wedding Suit

Tailor’s Notes
A wedding suit should leave no one in any doubt as to whether you have come straight from the office. A peak lapel is snazzier than a notch and a one-button or two-button jacket is less corporate than three. If it’s a daytime wedding and morning dress is not on the agenda then navy and grey are, as ever, the safest and most versatile suit colours. In both cases, opt for a shade less dark than you would for work. It’s a party, right? Lighten up. Maybe even choose brown!
