Henry Herbert was privileged to make a wedding suit for Tim Boyce (pictured), a broker at ICAP and the six suits for his six best men. The wedding took place in Italy and we chose a lightweight pure blue, English wool from Dugdale to cope with the higher Italian temperatures. Each man was measured individually and each pattern was cut individually, allowing us to cater for the variety of heights, shapes and sizes. They all looked terrific.
A small suburb of Brazzaville in Congo has become an unlikely style capital, thanks to its dedicated followers of foppish fashion. Dressed to the nines in bowler hats and tailored suits, a group of cigar-wielding ‘sapeurs’ have been strutting their stuff through the shanty town – and on to the pages of a glossy new book, Gentlemen of Bacongo, by Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni. Le Sapeurs, as they’re called, wear pink suits and D&G belts while living in the slums. Whether it be spectacles or bow tie accessories are very important for the sapeur, setting him apart from the less sartorially savvy crowd.
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.
