In 1607 ‘bespoken’ was first used as an adjective to describe something commissioned or ‘ordered to be made’. The word bespoke comes from the word bespeak and today, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, bespeak still means ‘to order something or reserve it in advance’. The beauty of bespoke tailoring is that everything is possible and that any request can be met.
Our nine-step process has stood the test of time and ensures that at the end of it you will have an exquisite hand-made bespoke garment that will last you a lifetime.
Our cutters are as highly prized as top surgeons but we believe only the best is good enough for our clients. Most of our cutters and tailors have been with us for many years.
Our shirting service offers a range of soft Sea Island cottons, voiles and poplins with an array of collar shapes and hand stitched monograms. All shirts are tailored using the client’s personal pattern and are guaranteed to complement their Henry Poole & Co. suit.
Each suit is bespoke, cut and handmade from the finest Italian velvet, trimmed with a choice of buttons and shoe buckles in the correct court patterns.
All our customers are welcome to leaf through our swatch books in the shop but now our clients are able to view all our fabric swatches online and order up to ten complimentary samples, which will arrive within a working week.
