The Tweed Sports Jacket

Bespoke Sports Jacket

Tailor’s Notes
If you don’t already own a well-fitting sports jacket, it should be the first thing you next think of. Play it right and you’ll look as sharp as Don Draper. But what should you look out for? It’s called a sports jacket for a reason. You can dress it up, but it’s meant to be played in. Hard. That means throwing it on the backseat of your car or cramming it in your backpack once you’ve peeled it off. It doesn’t need an occasion, and it doesn’t need to match anything. It just needs to be worn.

The Construction
Made with a canvass, the jacket is made and cut in England. As much of the jacket as possible is hand tailored. As with every jacket we make, unless you choose our Express service, the jacket will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the jacket is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth was from Holland & Sherry and the lining from Dugdales in Huddersfield. The cloth is 100% wool with working buttons and working cuffs.

Henry Herbert tailors keep trooping through the snow!

LR HH MG 51621 150x150 Henry Herbert tailors keep trooping through the snow!ALTHOUGH WE might be surrounded by snow, Henry Herbert, as a scootering tailor service, won’t let that stop us reaching our customers…..we just have to wrap up……a lot! Pictured is Charlie, the creator of Henry Herbert Tailors. As with all of our scootering tailors, we dress appropriately for the weather and in the snow we put on our reflective and heated body suits (see more about heated motorcycle clothing here), we wear motorcycle snow boots and two pairs of gloves. The snow hasn’t defeated us yet! A small company in London, called Dashing Tweeds, offers a beautiful, waterproof Tweed jacket for scooter drivers. They are stunning, but a bit too expensive for us unfortunately.
