Ede & Ravenscroft – London’s Oldest Tailor

I must admit that I have a particular fondness for the well-tailored British style. Although I lived in London and have been there more times than I can count, I had until recently never been inside of Ede & Ravenscroft. On the occasion of the upcoming wedding and the need for a formal shirt suitable for tuxedo probed the terrain sharply in London during my last visit.

It all ended with the signed now will get married in a white tuxedo shirt Marcella from this venerable British manufacturers. Moreover, I thought with today’s text here on our site tell me more about the company that, as I see it, in the first place is an exceptionally good and affordable ekiperare when it comes to formal / formal wear.

What many do not know is that Ede & Ravenscroft actually is London’s oldest tailor and the company formally started in 1689 in the Aldwych, London. The founding family Shudall got a good reputation and made formal garments such as jackets and capes. Among other things, they learn to have sewn this up for royals such as King William II and Queen Mary II and later to King George III. An important part of the business was to be sewing up specific work clothes to the church, lawyers and judges and civil servants. Over the years the company grew to more normal tailoring for individuals.

Even today engaged in the tailoring business, both fully bespoke and custom dimensions / MTM services. However, as with so many other British firms with a long tradition and history so that through the years have left the tailored more and more and started selling ready-made garments increasingly. As well as accessories and options. They are careful with the British heritage and style, and points out that as much as possible, of their finished goods to be manufactured in the UK.

At the moment the three stores in London and one in Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh, as well as a shop with a relatively wide range. The website is a little extra fun because it contains some interesting guides and instructions. However, it looks as if it was designed in the early 90s.

I will allow myself to be a bit personal and say I was a little charm of the extremely fine premises and the tradition of the entire operation was breathing. The clothing itself is good but sticking purely qualitative not print. It is clearly good quality and has a classic fit okay but is also a bit boring. If you like the timeless, this is a good store with a large selection. Personally, it is the formal garments, I will visit the Ede & Ravenscroft again. The range of tuxedo, wedding suits, shirts and formal accessories is large. On the eve of graduation, baptism and wedding suits therefore perfectly. I am not exaggerating if I say that I visited and tried shirts of the 10 manufacturers before I found exactly the shirt I was looking at Ede & Ravenscroft. The price was about SEK 1350, which in London is located in an intermediate segment. My assessment is that by far beats the slightly cheaper manufacturers TM Lewin, Charles Tyrwhitt and Harvie & Hudson. Instead, the closest to compare with the feeling of Turnbull & Asser or Hilditch & Key, which incidentally was the producer, I chose from.
