Tailor made waistcoat in Taylor & Lodge fabric

Bespoke Wedding Waistcoat

An example of an excellent and very fine cloth from Taylor & Lodge of Huddersfield, England, in a recent Henry Herbert three-piece suit. The secret is, “always keep the style simple and the cloth special.”

Inside Henry Herbert Suits

Inside Label On the inside of every Henry Herbert jacket, you will always find a label, discreetly hidden inside the inner pocket, stating the date we made the suit and who it was made for. This is a tradition of Savile Row, one of  many personal and subtle finishes of a bespoke suit by Henry Herbert Tailors.

Henry Herbert Waistcoats

As bespoke tailors, Henry Herbert can offer any cut and style of waistcoat you wish. However, we have found that the styles below tend to be the most popular.

Wristwatch

The Pocketwatch Waistcoat

The Pocketwatch Waistcoat is very similar to the Oscar Lafontaine Waistcoat (see below) with the exception of its pockets, which were originally designed to accommodate a pocketwatch or a stopwatch.

Edwardian Line

The Edwardian Line

The Edwardian Line was a reaction to King Edward’s Waistcoat. Both
waistcoats have clean symmetrical lines defining their shape, but the Edwardian Line has a sharp line punching through the area around the tummy – a provocative but subtle style reaction to the King’s favourite.

Evening Waistcoat

The Horse Shoe Sccop Waistcoat

The horse shoe sccop waistcoat is designed to be worn with a black tie. The low slung body hides it discreetly behind a buttoned dinner jacket and tuxedo shirt, but quickly reveals itself when the jacket is unbuttoned. It should be worn without a cummerbund and the waistcoat buttons should remain fastened throughout the evening.

Lounge

The Lounge Waistcoat

The Lounge waistcoat was once always a key characteristic of the three piece suit, but today it has been adopted as a popular choice amongst the youth of Britain, such as the style icon Kate Moss and the members of indie band Razorlight who wear them over casual shirts and jeans for a day-to-day fashionable look.

Oscar

The Oskar Lafontaine Waistcoat

Oskar Lafontaine is a German politician and former German Finance Minister. During his short tenure as Minister of Finance, Lafontaine was a major bogeyman of UK Eurosceptics. He is famed for always wearing a waistcoat, with two large, front pockets and five buttons, thus the Oscar Lafontaine Waistcoat.

The Great Blue Sports Jacket with an Open Cream Shirt

Bespoke Savile Row Suit & Sports Jackets

A great blue jacket, designed with cloth from Dugdale Bros, complemented by a crisp shirt, using shirting cloth from Acorn Fabrics.  Although the jacket is only at its baste fitting stage, we can already see emerging the elegant effect that such a combination of colour, cut and style can offer.

Henry Herbert Makes Ladies Suits!

Bespoke Ladies Suits

Yes, that’s right….Henry Herbert makes ladies suits! We make two and three piece suits and you can choose between jackets, trousers, skirts and waistcoats. All we ask is that, when a tailor comes to visit you, we are allowed to take away with us a jacket that already fits you well, which we use a base pattern. (We can include any alterations that you wish to be incorporated). The jackets are always safely returned. All you have to do is Book a Tailor! We offer a great range of pure wools which we always carry with us. However, if you wish to choose from the immaculate and colourful range of Linton fabrics, then please let us know when booking a tailor so that we know to bring them with us. As a footnote, Linton is the fabric of choice for haute couture Chanel jackets.
