A bespoke overcoat can be the icing on the cake when it comes to sartorial excellence. Gentlemen always look amazing whenever they turn out wearing a smart tailored overcoat.

I have handcrafted outer garments for a variety of clients from all over the World. I recently made a British Warm for a Russian client who wanted to keep the chill out while he is in Moscow, my client liked the winter coat that I had made him so much that he then re-ordered a lightweight Cashmere outer coat to be made for Spring.

I am commissioned by clients to make true one-off styles that my clients have sometimes personally designed, then working closely with them I will develop and produce their rough sketches to an immaculate finished article.

Whatever your preference may be, I can create something that will be appropriate, functional, and most importantly make you look great.

I have a wide choice of British coatings in all the popular colours from camel through to black, in various weights and cloth compositions.

The Chesterfield overcoat is by far the most popular overcoat that I make. It is a long, tailored overcoat. It arose along with the lounge suit as an alternative to the highly shaped coats it replaced, such as the frock overcoat with its heavy waist suppression using a waist seam.

The Chesterfield has no horizontal seam or sidebodies, but can still be somewhat shaped using the side seams and darts. It can be single or double-breasted, and has been popular in a wide variety of fabrics, typically heavier weight tweeds, or charcoal and navy, and even the camel-hair classic. It has often been made with a velvet collar.

It was named after the Earl of Chesterfield.
