A Henry Herbert suit for a young London based solicitor for his wedding day. The suit was made from a splendid Super 120’s cloth from Thomas Fisher, from Huddersfield and looks smashing with the accompanying lounge waistcoat…and his new wife.
A Henry Herbert Tailors work in progress: a brave and very striking fabric for a suit we are making for the Managing Director of a large media firm. The fabric is from Bateman Ogden, a Yorkshire based mill who are so old-school they don’t even have a website. The colour looks fabulous and will serve as a great suit for all occasions, professional and special.
A special shirt we have made for the Managing Director of a large media firm. The fabric is from Acorn, in Lancashire, and is made of an excellent English cotton. The shirt is made even more unusual by the special collar trim and button sewing surround. Every part of this shirt was handmade, in London. Come and visit us (or we can visit you) to find out more about the different processes involved in making your handmade, bespoke shirt.
A great looking Holland & Sherry fabric in a tailored suit Henry Herbert has just made for a young man from J.P. Morgan. The pictured suit is at its first fitting stage, or what is also known as a baste fitting. This is followed, a few weeks later, by a second fitting , or what is sometimes called a forward fitting. And a little while after that, depending on any necessary alterations, the suit will be completed after a third fitting, or what is known as a finish-bar-finish. This is all part of the bespoke suit making process. Henry Herbert Tailors cuts, makes and finishes every single suit in England.
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.”
Henry Herbert was invited to make a morning suit and waistcoat for the gentleman pictured above – a young lawyer from London, who married in the South of France. We chose the traditional trouser cloth from Bateman & Ogden (a Yorkshire mill) and the cloth for the coat and the waistcoat was made by Dugdale Brothers, of Huddersfield. A great looking morning suit to match his splendid looking bride.
Every Henry Herbert shirt comes with removable brass collar bones and each one is finished with the finest single stitching. We were lucky enough to recently have some of our shirts photographed by the excellent fashion and reportage photographer, Greg Funnell. Greg is a graduate of King’s College (London) and patiently photographed some of the features of a Henry Herbert shirt.
ALTHOUGH WE might be surrounded by snow, Henry Herbert, as a scootering tailor service, won’t let that stop us reaching our customers…..we just have to wrap up……a lot! Pictured is Charlie, the creator of Henry Herbert Tailors. As with all of our scootering tailors, we dress appropriately for the weather and in the snow we put on our reflective and heated body suits (see more about heated motorcycle clothing here), we wear motorcycle snow boots and two pairs of gloves. The snow hasn’t defeated us yet! A small company in London, called Dashing Tweeds, offers a beautiful, waterproof Tweed jacket for scooter drivers. They are stunning, but a bit too expensive for us unfortunately.
Henry Herbert offers a full alteration service. All of our alterations are carried out in London.
Our alterations service is carried out at our workshop on Lamb’s Conduit Passage in central London.
