Fabric: Egyptian cotton
A young man in his bespoke shirt, made for him by Henry Herbert Tailors. A slim fitting shirt, complemented by a great looking tie, in a fine Egyptian cotton.
We were privileged to be invited to make the shirt, waistcoat and trousers for this young gentleman for his wedding day. He selected a crisp white shirt, with the fabric from Acorn Fabrics in Lancashire, a double breasted waistcoat, using a luxurious Scottish cotton from Harrisons of Edinburgh and a pinstriped pair of trousers (with a subtle orange tinge to the stripes). The combination looks great and his bride seems happy with the result!
Every shirt we make is handmade to the highest Savile Row standards. We use the finest cottons, Mother of Pearl buttons and brass collar bones. The packaging, shows the care and attention we take when delivering every shirt. This is a bengal stripe shirt on its way to a customer.

A special request for a pink shirt with a white trim. This is an unusual and skilled piece of tailoring and involves cutting and stitching the collar twice. The shirt was for Phil O’Farrell who, with Freddie Smith, represents part of the band Celtic Fiddle. (We made Freddie an extraordinary fish tail waistcoat which you can see under our waistcoats section). They play great Irish inspired tunes and you can listen to some of them on their MySpace account here.
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.

Bespoke Shooting Shirt
A Henry Herbert shooting shirt, handmade in England, for an Austrian customer. We used a set of special fabrics from Acorn Fabrics, in Lancashire. They are one of the last remaining English shirting fabric companies left in the country.
Over a dozen upper body measurements were taken by our shirt makers so that the shirt was a perfect fit. We did this in order to match the precise contours of the shoulders with the customer’s preference for cuffs & collars . It took four weeks to make.
Every Henry Herbert shirt comes with removable brass collar bones, mother of pearl buttons and each one is finished with the finest single stitching. Our shirts are from £140.

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.
