Tailored suits. Be British. Be Tailored. By Henry Herbert Tailors

fin2 723x1024 Tailored suits. Be British. Be Tailored. By Henry Herbert TailorsTailored suits bring an air of confidence to every man. The feeling of freshly cut cloth, a pattern made to exactly your measurements and the bespoke service that should go with every tailored suit do what every tailored suit should: make you feel good.

The biggest test of any tailored suit is whether it makes you feel good. If it does, that is all that matters.

Entering into the world of tailored suits and bespoke tailoring can feel like stepping onto the set of “Mad Men” or “A Single Man,” the film-directing debut of the men’s wear designer Tom Ford. But your tailor is there to help you and guide you through the vast selections available to you.

Tailor’s Notes
We also make bespoke weekend shirts. With a more relaxed fit and softer fabrics, the shirts will fall across your body with a more gentle positioning. The shirt shown opposite is made from a glorious Sea Island cotton.

To make your shirt a perfect fit, our expert tailors will take over a dozen upper body measurements. It will match the precise contours of your shoulders, your preference for cuffs & collars, as well as your habits of watch wearing. Our shirts take between four to five weeks to make.

Details
Every Henry Herbert shirt comes with removable brass collar bones, mother of pearl buttons and each one is finished with the finest single stitching. Our shirts start at £140.

Video: Just what makes a good sports jacket?

The sports jacket is an essential garment for every wardrobe. It can be made from a variety of different fabrics, including linen, silk, cotton, mohair and wool. They all offer their own individual merits, but a well cut, bespoke linen sports jacket can look super sharp. A common concern is that linen can crease easily – as long as you look after the linen jacket, it will look after you. This is a short video of a bespoke sports jacket made by Henry Herbert Tailors.

We make a variety of suits for a variety of different budgets and try to be as accommodating as possible. But this is one very special cloth – a Super 160’s from Dormeuil. We have made it for a customer who has worked hard and is in a position to indulge himself and it is the softest and most delicate fabric we have ever worked with. We can only hope the camera shot does the fabric some justice. In case you didn’t know, Dormeuil supply the cloth for the suits in the James Bond films!

This is a great example of how linen can work wonderfully well as weekend and casual sports jackets. This is a linen jacket that Henry Herbert made for a gentleman in the military – hence, the reason he is camera shy and wearing the dark glasses. The linen is spectacularly complemented by the lining – great looking Bengal stripe. Both the linen and the lining are from Harrisions of Edinburgh.

Wow – what a waistcoat!

A special brown waistcoat, made even more special by the very difficult sewing surround of the last button! (The colour matches the lining). This was part of an incredibly difficult three-piece suit that took Henry Herbert 37.5 hours of tailoring to complete, but well worth the toil. The fabric is a splendid Super 100’s wool from Holland & Sherry.
