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.
