Bespoke Morning Suit

Tailor’s Notes

Look around the congregation at any wedding where the dress code is “morning suits” and you’ll spy countless badly dressed men. Men in box-like coats that make them look like undertakers; men in tired-looking garb clearly hired from high-street chains; men with conservative demeanours who have awkwardly decided to have “fun” with their waistcoat. But among the sea of dreadfulness you’ll also spot a few guys who look fantastic. And this is one of them.

The Construction
Made with a canvass, our morning suits are made and cut in England. As with all photographs on our website, thery are actual customers in actual Henry Herbert morning suits. As with every suit we make, they take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

A Bespoke Blue Wedding Suit

Tailor’s Notes
Who said men should be invisible at weddings? Who said you have to quietly hold her purse? Try something bold like a beautiful blue suit. Just remember, you only want to wear one superstar at a time. The shirt, tie, and trousers should all be something to complement the suit – not compete with it.

The Construction
Made with a canvas, the suit is made and cut in England. As much of the suit as possible is hand tailored. As with every suit we make, unless you choose our Express service, the suit will take 8-9 weeks to make – we have a half way baste fitting and then a forward baste fitting before the suit is finished and delivered.

Details
The cloth was from an English Super 130’s wool, with working buttons and horn buttons.

A French wedding with an Ooh La La Suit!

Two photographs from the wedding of a young man who married in the south west of France. It was a summer wedding, so we decided upon a light weight and very fine Super 130’s wool from Thomas Fischer in Huddersfield for this young man’s wedding suit. Hopefully, the top photograph shows the elegance of the slim cut suit and the lower photograph the finesse of this excellent Huddersfield cloth. The three button suit was complemented by a brilliant white bespoke shirt and, all put together, made for a sharp looking wedding suit. The suit and cloth chosen also allow for the suit to be worn on future occasions too and will serve as a great suit for many years to come.

Time for a Three-Piece Suit

Three Piece Suit WaistcoatBespoke Wedding Waistcoat

An example of an excellent and very fine cloth from Taylor & Lodge of Huddersfield, England, in a recent Henry Herbert three-piece suit. The customer chose a simple and elegant style to the suit – a two button single breasted jacket, with a straight pocket either side. The suit is enhanced hugely by:

1. Excellent choice of cloth,

2. Savile Row tapering to the sides of the jacket, and

3. A very simple coat style complemented by a waistcoat.

Glorious Herringbone in a Henry Herbert suit

Bespoke Herringbone SuitHerringbone Suit

An excellent example of a herringbone fabric….but very difficult to photograph too! The fabric is from Hield Mills, in Huddersfield and is a glorious blue. This suit is in its baste stage for one of our customers who works for a large international financial group and who, interestingly, told us that the Chinese save 50% of all of their income. It puts the British to shame. Unfortunately, the photograph may not do the pattern justice, but it will turn out to be a very striking and very sharp suit.

Wow – what a suit!

Special Bespoke SuitBespoek Suit with Bespoke Trim

An extremely rare breed of suit – brown. It is made even more rare by the special velvet trim collar and made even more special by the very difficult sewing surround of the last cuff button! (The colour matches the lining). This was an incredibly difficult three-piece suit, which 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.

Wow – what a waistcoat!

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.

An Electric Blue Suit for a Henry Herbert Customer

Bespoke Baste Suit Fitting

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 Henry Herbert three-piece suit for the wedding of Mr Steve Hunter. Mr Hunter is a Cardiothoracic surgeon in the North West of England and is a fascinating professional to converse with. We chose a glorious fabric from Hield, a Huddersfield based mill and one not a million miles away from where Mr Hunter works.
