Black Book

Henry Herbert makes suits, waistcoats, trousers, shirts and overcoats…and bespoke ties, handkerchiefs and pyjamas too. And everything we make is made in England. To order any of these simply Book a Tailor. However, we have lots of enquiries for recommendations from braces to hats to socks. Below, we have built a little black book of accessories we would recommend.
