Designed for you, forever.

Pip Howeson tailors coats, jackets, dresses and skirts to your exacting requirements.

With your vision and our meticulous approach, experience and commitment to sourcing the best of British textiles, our garments are both instant classics and innately unique.

Bespoke Tailoring

Pip Howeson offers three levels of bespoke tailoring depending on the precise level of customisation you require

N°.1

Made to Order

Simply choose your perfect fabric and cut from our collection and send us your selections along with your measurements for a truly statement piece.

N°.2

Custom Made

For those who want a little more creative input. In a face to face meeting, you can choose from a collection piece or mix and match different elements from across the collection. By taking the collar from one and the sleeve from another, you can ensure a garment that reflects and highlights the subtle nuances that distinguish your individual figure and taste.

N°.3

Utterly Bespoke

The option for those who want the ultimate in fit and finish; a garment that is truly their own. The process is entirely flexible and your design will emerge from a combination of your creative flair and Pip’s tailoring expertise.
