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.

Bespoke Brown Herringbone Wedding Suit

Tailor’s Notes
A wedding suit should leave no one in any doubt as to whether you have come straight from the office. A peak lapel is snazzier than a notch and a one-button or two-button jacket is less corporate than three. If it’s a daytime wedding and morning dress is not on the agenda then navy and grey are, as ever, the safest and most versatile suit colours. In both cases, opt for a shade less dark than you would for work. It’s a party, right? Lighten up. Maybe even choose brown!

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.

A French Wedding with an Ooh La La Suit!

Bespoke Wedding Suit

Tailor’s Notes
Two photographs from the wedding of a young man who married in the south west of France. It was a summer wedding, so we decided upon a light weight and very fine Super 130?s wool from Thomas Fischer in Huddersfield for this young man’s wedding suit. Hopefully, the first photograph shows the elegance of the slim cut suit and the second photograph the finesse of this excellent Huddersfield cloth. The three button suit was complemented by a brilliant white bespoke shirt and, all put together, made for a sharp looking wedding suit. The suit and cloth chosen also allow for the suit to be worn on future occasions too and will serve as a great suit for many years to come.

The Morning Blues

Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes

Lost in their own thoughts, this handsome couple exude style and poise. The distinguished groom has co-ordinated the subtle bursts of blue with the formal morning coat and distinctly debonair pinstripe trousers to give an all round look of perfect pastels and traditional tailoring. The waistcoat, left slightly unbuttoned at the bottom, again relates to the true story of a rounded regal representative who found it difficult to bend down, unless he left at least one button undone on his waistcoat – not that this dashing groom has such a problem. There are times when it is bliss to be blue.

Henry Herbert rings the wedding bells

Bespoke Wedding Suit

We were privileged to be invited to make the shirt, waistcoat and trousers for this young gentleman for his wedding day. He selected a crisp white shirt, with the fabric from Acorn Fabrics in Lancashire, a double breasted waistcoat, using a luxurious Scottish cotton from Harrisons of Edinburgh and a pinstriped pair of trousers (with a subtle orange tinge to the stripes). The combination looks great and his bride seems happy with the result!

Glorious Seersucker and All That Jazz

Seersucker Wedding Suit Seersucker The Coolest Cloth

Seersucker Wedding Suit by Henry HerbertTailors

Henry Herbert was extremely privileged to make the above suit: privileged on two counts in fact. The first, because the suit was created for the wedding of Ray Goold (above), a wonderful and talented musician. Ray plays with the Solent City Jazzmen in Southampton. The second, because Ray asked for an extremely rare, but special, fabric for his suit – Seersucker. We chose a seersucker fabric from Holland & Sherry. Unfortunately, the photograph may not do it justice, looking at it on a computer, as seersucker fabric is woven in such a way that it gives a glorious texture and is great, either as as suit or stand alone trousers or jacket. Richard Green for The Big Black Book (Illustration)
