London is home to many fine tailors, built on reputations of providing the UK’s capital city’s fashion elite with the finest in dresswear and accessories but, truth be told, few have won quite so many hearts and minds as that of Budd Shirtmakers, who operate out of Piccadilly Arcade on the west side of the city. This iconic London tailor has one of the most impressive reputations of the many illustrious tailors in London and were originally founded in 1910 and, extraordinarily given their reputations spans the Atlantic, still operate out of the same small store in which their operations began over a century ago.
Budd remain one of the extremely rare tailors who still have their skilled craftsman on site and their two, classically trained and world renowned tailors operate from a cutting room on the floor above their store so they are always on hand when required (unless they are in New York for one of their frequent trips to the Big Apple to carry out fitting sessions with Manhattan’s dapper gentlemen). Their exceptional wares are made from the finest materials, which have been sourced from all over Europe, and hand-made in the UK and the additional level of comfort and sartorial style is immediately evident the moment you pull on a Budd shirt for the first time.
When it comes to menswears and accessories, it is important to opt for the best if you want to look stylish and, so far as tailors in London are concerned, you really will be hard-pressed to find a more respected, sophisticated or sought after tailor than that of Budd Shirtmakers. Offering everything dapper that you can conceive off, from spiffingly stylish white shirts to striking and statement pieces like patterned pocket squares, you’ll find everything that you need under one roof when you step foot in front of the well-stocked shelves of Budd Shirtmaker’s West London store.
