We have been invited to design and tailor a unique Nehru jacket for a gentleman’s wedding. The Nehru jacket is a hip-length tailored coat for men or women, crated in India in the 1940s. The jacket essentially blends the collar of the achkan, historically the royal court dress of Indian nobles, with the Western suit jacket. It was popularised by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India.  (Source: Wikipedia).

More recently, the Nehru jacket was made popular in the 60s by no other than The Beatles.  In August 2013, John Lennon’s teal nehru jacket, with mandarin collar and slightly flared sleeves was bought by a fan for £7,000 in an auction, reported the BBC.

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.

Inside Henry Herbert Suits

Inside Label1 200x300 Inside Henry Herbert Suits On the inside of every Henry Herbert jacket, you will always find a label, discreetly hidden inside the inner pocket, stating the date we made the suit and who it was made for. This is a tradition of Savile Row, one of  many personal and subtle finishes of a bespoke suit by Henry Herbert Tailors.

A great blue jacket, designed with cloth from Dugdale Bros, complemented by a crisp shirt, using shirting cloth from Acorn Fabrics.  Although the jacket is only at its baste fitting stage, we can already see emerging the elegant effect that such a combination of colour, cut and style can offer.
