“ Tailor service specialising in robe making, custom tailoring and hiring out for legal gowns and wigs, clerical dress, civic and municipal robes, academic dress and other ceremonial and formal dress. „
Ede & Ravenscroft is London's oldest tailor and robe maker, founded in 1689. They have three shops in London and the other shops are located in Oxford, Edinburgh and Cambridge.
I bought a suit there 10 years ago and it is still in perfect condition. Even today, people comment on how good the cut is. I also have three shirts that I bought from there and again, they are of amazing quality.
I find a lot of the higher-end suit shops in London somewhat snobbish, but the service in Ede & Ravenscroft for me has always been spectacular. They take an interest in what is best for you and they really do go out of their way to find something that will, excuse the pun, suit you.
The suits are expensive, but if you buy one, it will last. You can buy a cheap suit somewhere else, but you will probably have to replace it after a few years. The shirts in the sales are very reasonably-priced.
My advice is to buy a fairly conservative suit from Ede & Ravenscroft that will not go out of fashion. It will be with you for many years to come.
