“The quality of Henry Herbert’s tailoring is matched only by the quality of the service they provide. I was met at my desk by a Henry Herbert tailor who arrived there by scooter (bang on time). I was measured at my desk and shown swatches. When I eventually got my suit, it looked great and I’ve had so many compliments on it since.”
Mark Hudson, London

I was intrigued by the Henry Herbert scootering service – it fitted conveniently into the way I work. A tailor promptly arrived at the scheduled time, measured me for my shirts, which arrived several weeks later and which fit excellently. A great service which I would wholeheartedly recommend.
Steve Norris, former Government Minister

“I got my brilliant wedding suit from Henry Herbert’s recently – I want to thank them for saving my wedding after another tailor let me down at the last minute. I was really impressed with the quality of the suit – the service was great as well, they came to my office to take the order and then delivered back to me just in time for my wedding. They also had great attention to detail to make it looked absolutely perfect. The suit is now definitely my favourite and is much better quality than the other bespoke suits I’ve previously bought. Would definitely recommend them!”

Gentlemen of Bacongo

A small suburb of Brazzaville in Congo has become an unlikely style capital, thanks to its dedicated followers of foppish fashion. Dressed to the nines in bowler hats and tailored suits, a group of cigar-wielding ‘sapeurs’ have been strutting their stuff through the shanty town – and on to the pages of a glossy new book, Gentlemen of Bacongo, by Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni. Le Sapeurs, as they’re called, wear pink suits and D&G belts while living in the slums. Whether it be spectacles or bow tie accessories are very important for the sapeur, setting him apart from the less sartorially savvy crowd.

Tail Coat; the French military way

I recently visited Paris to meet some friends and we unearthed this unloved French military tail coat. It seemed to fit quite well, so I thought I would try it on! It was a heavy material which was an interesting mix of wool, polyester and mohair. It has some discreet and interesting features – a zip pocket hidden inside the embroidery, a ticket pocket for rifle ammunition and a small sling pocket inside the sleeve cuff which unbelievably was made to hide a knife….hopefully not from fear of attack from the bride! Unfortunately I had to leave this beautiful example of a tail coat behind in Paris.

The Grenadier Guards

I took the girlfriend for a quiet drink at a lovely little pub called The Grenadier in central London. But it wasn’t so quiet! We were joined by a group of Officers from The Grenadier Guards who were all smartly turned out in their traditional bowler hats and chalk stripe suits enjoying a sports drink before their annual memorial. A collection of brave young men from one of the most traditional regimentsof the British Army.
