Bespoke Velvet Black-Tie

Tailor’s Notes

Perhaps it’s due to the new gender-fluid mood. Perhaps it’s something to do with menswear’s newly invigorated passion for maximalism, but that most foppish of fabrics – velvet – is having a moment. The shift in the fabric’s fortunes (a fabric that has been championed in the past by professional showoffs ranging from Oscar Wilde to Hugh Hefner) was affirmed when Prince Harry wore a killer single-breasted, black velvet tuxedo jacket with a chic peak lapel to his wedding reception. And again with this Henry Herbert customer (pictured in his Henry Herbert velvet jacket). Though Harry certainly owned the look on the day, we’ve appreciated the manifold virtues of velvet for a while.

The Construction
This velvet jacket was made all by hand by Henry Herbert Tailors in our London workshop. Velvet is produced by weaving a double thickness material which is then cut down the middle to create the pile, a well-cut velvet jacket is equivalent to wearing a hug (as Harry will no doubt attest, after his wedding).

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.
