Summer Suit fabrics to keep you cool: lightweight wools, silks, mohair, cottons and linens. Irish linen is considered the best and the least likely to crease. All offer the opportunity to have a very sharply cut bespoke suit that will keep you cool, and smart, in the summer. This photograph is a fabulous photograph taken by The Sartorialist.

A British Cut
The V-shaped man in the double-breasted suit is making a comeback. This classic grey double-breasted suit is adding stylish swagger to city streets and cool tailoring to corporate offices. The double-breasted silhouettes, swooping lapels, broadened shoulders, and extra chest are making a resurgence.
This suit was made and cut in England, and as much of it as possible was hand-tailored. The jacket is canvassed. A suit such as this takes 8-9 weeks to make, unless you opt for our Express Service. We have a halfway baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.
The cloth is an English-made wool. The jacket has working cuffs and the buttons are made out of horn.

Fabric: Lightweight tweed.
Fabric source: Edinburgh, Scotland.
Cut: Slim, Single Breasted, with double breasted waistcoat.
Occasion: City to country to weddings!
Notes: This stylish young gentleman, who divides his time between the Cotswolds and London needed a lightweight tweed from Holland & Sherry which would work well in both environments. This suit is all about versatility and juxtaposing the city with the country. The suit offers a contemporary cut double breasted waistcoat.

Well, that’s a first for a Henry Herbert suit. A request for epaulettes on a customer’s suit – probably last seen in the 1970’s. They are fastened to the shoulder by a strap or “passant“, a small strap parallel to the shoulder seam and the button near the collar. This particular customer may prove to be a trend forecaster…who would have thought double breasted suits would make a comeback afterall?

Although not strictly related to Savile Row tailoring, I love the new Jaguar E Type successor: luxurious, iconic, elegant, bold and fast – it is pure Jaguar with its long bonnet and world famous grizzly grill.

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.
