Accessories can be the final accent to completing a great, well-fitting suit. Just like the process of finding the perfect accessories, finding the perfect fitting suit should be an investment. Take your style to the next level with Royal Warrant holder, Benson and Clegg on their inaugural trip to Philadelphia on June 10th. They provide bespoke and made to measure suits to the best dressed men in London and around the world.
About Benson & Clegg
Founded in 1937 after a partnership of master cutters Harry Benson and Thomas Clegg, the company was a chance to bring their own style of tailoring to customers. In 1976 the company moved to historic Piccadilly Arcade on Jermyn Street in London, where you will still find it today. Benson & Clegg has had a long history of holding a Royal Warrant, in 1944 becoming the official tailors to King George VI. In 1992, they were granted a Royal Warrant to supply buttons badges and military neckwear to The Prince of Wales.
Bespoke suits are tailor made just for you. They typically take 3-4 fittings over the course of a years time. These suit patterns are cut for your body and how you stand. Personal tailoring suits fall nicely between a true bespoke garment and ready to wear. While still able to customize the suit, the pattern is selected from a made-to-measure line to then be tailored to your fit and posture. These personal tailor garments typically take only 1 fitting over a six week time frame.
Benson & Clegg is currently expanding their sartorial reach. After many trips visiting Washington DC, New York City and Boston, in addition to many trunk shows internationally, Benson & Clegg is looking forward to their first Philadelphia visit. Head cutter and co-owner, Tony Martin, will be fitting current and new clients on June 10th and 11th at The Inn at the Union League.
