Bespoke Wedding Waistcoat

Tailor’s Notes
Henry Herbert was commissioned to make a wedding waistcoat to accompany the morning suit we were making for a young solicitor from London for his wedding. The customer knew the style of waistcoat he wanted and drew a sketch for us. From this sketch we……..a) made a pattern, then b) ordered the fabric from the mill, to c) make a baste fitting for him before, d) moving on to complete the waistcoat…and finally, the morning suit. This involved a huge amount of work, but was well worth the patience.

The Construction
Every waistcoat we make is made and cut in England. Every waistcoat is made by hand. As with every waistcoat we make, unless you choose our Express service, the waistcoat will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the waistcoat is finished and delivered.

We have a huge range of cloths to choose from – including wools, cottons, silks and linen’s.
