New York, British bespoke tailors are coming your way once again. The Henry Herbert tailoring team is visiting you! On Thursday 8th May, Friday 9th May & Saturday 10th May 2014, we will be based at our “workshop/fitting rooms” away from home, at the The Kitano, 66 Park Ave, New York, NY 10016. For these dates, we are swapping our Vespas for the iconic New York cabs (or our trusty feet), and the Tube for the Metro, and the “bespoke” suit for the “custom” suit!
For new suits and old friends, or old suits and new friends / fittings! If you would like to meet our tailors to hear more about how we work and what we do (naturally there is no charge for this!) or to have a coffee, to say hello. To brainstorm bespoke menswear ideas, to feel some fine fabrics, to have a discussion about British tailoring and Savile Row. No query is too big or too small. Book an appointment with us in New York.
How does it work? We bring with us everything we need to draw up a blueprint for your bespoke suit.
We meet, we greet. We bring with us a trunk full of suiting fabrics – British wools of the finest kind, and patterns of all sorts (checks, dogtooth, stripes, windowpane, tweed to name a few). Our experienced tailoring team is here to advise you on making a suitable (pun not intended!) choice for your bespoke suits (or overcoats, waistcoats, sports jackets, dinner suits) and shirts. We return to London with your bespoke order details and most importantly, your measurements. We order your selected fabric and cut the cloth into your specific pattern. We make the foundations of the suit, ready for a baste fitting. Then normally 8 weeks later (depending on availability) we return to NYC for your first fitting, a key part of the process. We come back to our London base, to make any major fit adjustments, rework the suit as needed, and a further 8 weeks later return to NYC for your final fitting. All made with British cloth, and handcrafted in England.
