This week the Dapper Chapper caught up with leading London tailor Henry Herbert.
Henry Herbert Tailors handcraft fine bespoke suits and shirts. True to the highest standards of traditional Savile Row tailoring, they use the finest fabrics and the finest service.
But just who is Henry Herbert? Well, Henry Herbert was once master of the royal wardrobe to both King Charles I and King Charles II and the name was resurrected by founder Charlie Baker-Collingwood, in order to continue the tradition of fine English tailoring.
The man behind the brand is Charlie Baker-Collingwood who learned his trade from various masters of the industry. More specifically jacket making at Morley College (London), Trouser & Waistcoat making at Central St Martin’s and sewing skills at City of Westminster College, where he obtained his City & Guilds qualifications.
Why it’s worth visiting Henry Herbert?
- Everything is made individually for each customer
- They use only wools from British mills and Egyptian or Italian cottons in their shirts
- They also have a fleet of scooters that are custom built Vespa’s, each named after a Royal Navy battleship.
- The tailors are fully trained motorcycle riders as well, offering a professional service at all times
