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.

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.
