Get City Slick at Threadneedles, Autograph Collection With Henry Herbert Tailors

New 24/7 Bespoke Tailoring Service Arrives by Scooter

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2014) - In London's Square Mile there is no room for square suits -- gentlemen and women are judged as much on their brains as they are by the cut of their jib. Since November 2014, guests of Threadneedles - an Autograph Collection hotel -- in the heart of The City, have no excuse for looking anything other than the height of City chic thanks to Henry Herbert Tailors' Savile Row by Scooter service, which brings bespoke tailoring to their bedroom.

Guests of Threadneedles -- the Square Mile's original boutique hotel -- are able to arrange appointments with Henry Herbert Tailors at any time of day or night, to be measured up for suits and shirts made from the finest English and Scottish fabrics, in the Savile Row tradition. The tailors travel exclusively by Scooter, whizzing about the capital and bringing exceptional service and the tools of the trade with them, including 2,000 fabric swatches. 

Following the initial consultation, a bespoke suit is fitted and finished in between four-eight weeks, with an Express Service available for shirts (two weeks). The finished product will then either be sent directly to the guest's home, bringing a stich of bespoke British Tailoring to their doorstep, or returned to the hotel to be collected on their next visit. Last-minute alterations can also be fixed at any time, day or night.

Henry Herbert Tailors' Founder, Charlie Baker-Collingwood, explains: "Henry Herbert Tailors is a traditional tailoring firm, working innovatively in the 21st century with our unique Savile Row scooter service. Working with Threadneedles is a natural partnership: their historic building has been bought into the modern world for the comfort of their guests. Offering our services will enable their guests to stay sharp and smart, around the clock."

Lawder Smith, General Manager of Threadneedles, adds: "We want to be able to offer our discerning guests -- many of whom are frequent travellers to London -- a highly personal service, much like that which they receive when staying with us. Whether it be for the creation of a new suit, or just last minute alterations, the partnership offers a new dimension for our guests, and something that draws on our history on Threadneedle Street."
