What’s on a tailor’s table?! Pictured is Charlie – the creator of Henry Herbert Tailors – at his Savile Row desk. It is not the tidiest desk in the world, but it has all the tools he needs to go through an order with each customer – tape measures, pins, chalk, books (and books) of fabrics and an order form. Henry Herbert is a scootering tailor service, using our fleet of Piaggio scooters to meet customers wherever and whenever is good for them. Or they can meet us, by appointment on Savile Row.

A great looking waistcoat we made, using a rare fishtail lining for Freddie Smith who, with Phil O’Farrell, is part of the band Freddie Smith & Phil O’Farrell. (We made Phil a great looking shirt too, which you can see under our shirts section). They play uplifting Irish inspired tunes and you can listen to some of their music on their MySpace account here.
A special brown waistcoat, made even more special by the very difficult sewing surround of the last button! (The colour matches the lining). This was part of an incredibly difficult three-piece suit that took Henry Herbert 37.5 hours of tailoring to complete, but well worth the toil. The fabric is a splendid Super 100’s wool from Holland & Sherry.
This is a wonderful illustration made for Henry Herbert by a superb illustrator called Alex Barrow. Alex is a graduate of Central St. Martin’s and draws everything by hand. We asked Alex to bring Henry Herbert to life and he drew this special montage for us. All of the other little drawings on our website are drawn by Alex too.
A little extra accessory we have added to the Henry Herbert scootering service. We have marked all of the helmets with luminous wording describing what we do. The lettering was done by the super friendly and very professional Neon & Sighmakers in east London.
Our professional bespoke suits deliverers and tailors assistants will surely hit the streets with finesse.
