Morning Suits

We hope we have removed the starch and stuffiness from tailoring. Our friendly and highly experienced tailors are not only well versed in the rules and dictates of formal wear but also how to bend and break those rules.

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).

The Construction
Made with a canvass, our morning suits are made and cut in England. As with all photographs on our website, to the left are actual customers in actual Henry Herbert morning suits. 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.

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

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes
Henry Herbert Tailors made both morning suits and accompanying waistcoats for these young couples. The cloth is a lightweight wool and the blue (and cream) waistcoat sits well with the tie and white shirt. You may be able to see that the last button of the waistcoat is undone in both photographs. If you have ever wondered why this is a common sight, you may be interested to read it is because a former Monarch was too large to touch his toes when it was fastened!

The Construction
Made with a canvass, 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.
