Tailor’s Notes
What are the expectations for a dinner shirt? According to GQ magazine: “It should always be a turn down collar – a wing collar is for white tie. The front part (the bib) should be pleated or Marcela (that textured fabric made up of little diamond shapes). With pleats, be careful to not veer down the Seventies ruffled look, but these days nice tight, neat pleats look great. It’s worn best with some simple elegant cufflinks – silver, black or white.”

The Construction
To make your shirt a perfect fit, our expert tailors will take over a dozen upper body measurements. It will match the precise contours of your shoulders, your preference for cuffs & collars, as well as your habits of watch wearing. Our shirts take between four to five weeks to make.

Every Henry Herbert dinner shirt comes with removable brass collar bones, mother of pearl buttons and each one is finished with the finest single stitching. Our dinner shirts are from £180.
