Huntsman has a long tradition of dressing gentlemen and ladies through their lives, advising on style, cut and design for each and every environment.
Sophisticated two- and three-piece suits to wear in the office or about town are the backbone of the modern gentleman’s wardrobe. Whether you require a classically elegant navy chalkstripe suit, a staple grey flannel lounge suit, a double-breasted business suit, or something more relaxed for informal dinners, we are perfectly positioned to create tailored clothing that complements your character and meet your requirements.
Although the majority of our customers opt for our signature single-breasted, one-button house style, we routinely cut double-breasted and two-button suits too and can advise on whether a cut will flatter your figure or the suit’s purpose. Our aim is to exceed expectations, no matter how particular the commission.
Huntsman has a long history of cutting clothes for riding, shooting and country pursuits, as well as casual wear like sports jackets, blazers and weekend trousers. We are recognised for our skill in matching tweed checks perfectly across the body, a practiced art enhanced still further with our own house designs.
We carry a vast selection of country cloths from cavalry twill to corduroy and tweeds. And we can offer customers full shooting looks: from jackets and vests complete with gun pleats, patch and bellows pockets, through to shooting breeches and matching caps.
Alternatively, for relaxed weekend separates, we have a carefully curated collection of less formal fabrics. Moleskins, soft woollen jacketings, trouserings, contemporary tweeds and flannels are perfect for informal, easy-to-wear outfits, which nonetheless reflects the house’s attention to quality.
Whether a morning suit for Royal Ascot and weddings, dinner jackets for gala events or White Tie for a banquet or ball, our cutting and sales team can advise and cater to all manner of formal wear requests. Head Cutters Campbell Carey and Dario Carnera, thrive on the intricacies of producing traditional close-fitting body coats for morning suits and tailcoats and are also strong advocates for the beauty and tradition of tartan trews.
Recent years have seen a resurgence in midnight blue dinner suits and velvet smoking jackets, revivals that are both sophisticated and timelessly elegant. To mark the occasion, we have recently reintroduced a selection of superior silk velvets into our swatch books, to create discerning, contemporary evening wear. Whether you opt for single- or double-breasted, shawl or peak lapel, frogging or plain fronted, velvets offer an unparalleled depth of colour and lustre that is hard to beat.
The beauty of a truly great suit is in the way that it can fulfil any purpose that you have in mind when it has been designed and constructed in the right way, with the right cloth. Thanks to the expertise of our team, we are able to create clothes suited to any climate or part of the world, whether it be a week’s holiday in Marrakech during the height of summer, or an autumnal business trip to New York.
For a tropical holiday abroad, we might suggest making up a lightweight half-lined single-breasted suit in a pale colour, cut in a tropical-weight, open weave travel cloth or fresco. For a more moderate spring look to suit the London season, a Solaro suit might be just right or perhaps lightweight cotton seersucker separates. Alternatively, a rich royal blue mesh-jacketing and cream trouser combination could work on the Riviera.
At the other end of the spectrum, we have a wealth of experience in creating clothing which can best defend our customers from the elements. Heavy thornproof tweeds, naturally water-resistant overcoatings, warming woollen flannels and high-twist worsteds can all be brought to bear on the winds and rains of even the harshest of winters.
We are fortunate to also have a great tradition of dressing the stars of stage and screen, a tradition we are proud to maintain today. From Rudolph Valentino and Marlene Dietrich to Hugh Bonneville and Nicole Kidman, we are uniquely placed to create luxurious bespoke clothing for the red carpet, film or television and for those clients who wish to make a particular statement with their tailoring.
