Tailors in Nottingham

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

Why is it getting more and more difficult to find a traditional tailor outside of London these days that encompasses all that is English. Where have those days gone where UK was proud to be buying British?

We believe, like many Great British industries; the lack of investment, not only financially, but in training people, over many years has resulted in the demise of  one of England’s greatest institutions.

Thankfully, many of the foreign owned cloth merchants have always recognised the unique quality of cloth milled in England, namely West Yorkshire.  This investment has firmly kept and continues the revival and production of the finest cloth in the world right here in Great Britain. It’s the perfect PH Balance of the Pennine water that gives Yorkshire milled cloth it’s unique quality and finish and why Huddersfield is renowned to be the world’s centre of cloth excellence. Sadly most of this cloth is shipped out to the wealthy countries around the world who demand the best in quality, luxury and durability, where the Tailoring industry is thriving.

We at Timothy James Henderson Bespoke Tailors recognise this as a tragic loss to the country.  Our heartfelt desire and passion is to bring new life to these great traditions of old without compromise and champion Nottingham and Baslow as the new landmarks for fine English hand tailoring outside London. Our Ethos is ‘Exclusively all English’
