Benson & Clegg: Regaling in Brass Buttons

Dressing King George Vl and his brother, the Duke of Kent and now supplying buttons to Prince Charles, Benson & Clegg are the premier tailors for handcrafted blazer button mastery.

Benson & Clegg are in many exclusive clubs, that most brands can only dream of entering. They’re one of only sixteen bespoke tailors to be members of the elite Savile Row Bespoke Association, have held a Royal Warrant from King George VI and were granted the appointment by Prince Charles – for buttons, badges and military neckwear.

Oscar Wilde once said: “There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about”. The Royal Warrant given to the firm by Prince Charles, consequently has created merited fanfare about their buttons. Word has even spread across the Atlantic Ocean, where it is believed the Americans, when visiting Benson & Clegg always declare they’re coming to buy their buttons and braces.
