Hello there...

My name is Joseph Martin. Although we have not met as yet, I hope to meet you and speak personally soon!

My father (Andrew), sister (Clerissa) and I work as visiting tailors, serving London and other major Cities around the globe. We make suits, shirts and other fine attire you would expect to find in a fine gentleman's clothing store.

What makes us different? Not only do we have at hand exceptional tailoring skills, we also have a deep understanding of personal image and style and can advise on what suits you best. Always working along with you and never dictating.

We aim for quality over quantity and pay close attention to every detail at each stage of the garment making process.

The result is, whatever the garment we make or cloth we use (Huddersfield or Italian), our tailored clothes will keep their shape and, if cared for properly, will last for generations.

Each week we work closely with Saville Row consultants, coat makers and craftsmen. We have done so for many years and, unlike many visiting tailors, we have work rooms and fitting rooms in the West End and East End of London. We are always happy to visit you at a location of your choice and we are never intrusive.

Please give us a call on 0845 8626 118 to discuss your needs, or alternatively send us an email using the form in the contact area. We will be glad to arrange a visit or simply give advice.

Fabric of the highest quality

We deal directly with “Loro Piana Fabrics”, “Dormeuil”, “Scabal” and, exclusive to us, “Isle of Mull Weavers Ardalanish.” A selection of thousands of the best. From “Super lightweight resilient travel cloth”, to hardy Huddersfield heavyweights

Working from imposing premises right in the centre of Huddersfield, home of fine worsted cloth, Dugdale Bros & Co LTD have been producing and warehousing extensive ranges of cloth for more than 100 years.

As sons of Huddersfield we are extremely proud of our township's history of making cloth for 700 years. We are also very proud to be associated with Dugdale Bros & Co one of the few surviving independent cloth merchants based in the Town and owned by a Huddersfield family


A History of Garment Making ‘Fathers History’

“Parkwood Mills Company of Huddersfield” were commission spinners, twisters, warpers, weavers, and menders, and from 1887 they also incorporated a Woollen manufacturers.

My family lived in one of the Weavers cottages just up the hill on Parkwood Road, a two or three minute walk from the mill. In fact, it took me less than one minute to run down the hill to Parkwood Mills to clock in at 6.30am to start the day's work.

I worked with some great old characters from yesteryear. As I was winding up my work career they were winding down, so to speak. However I learned a lot from those old characters and I miss my early days in Parkwood Mills.

I had a passion for good quality cloth and clothes instilled in me from an early age by one of our family members, who was a “Master Tailoress” as she called herself. I watched her skillfully sew and use her masterful methods to create a garment of distinction. I still use her tape today, such was her inspiration.

As she progressed in years, I thought that there must be a way to bring this quality to discerning people who appreciate fine tailored garments, along with the best cloth in the world.

Joseph Martin Bespoke Tailors Ltd, three generations of the same family, now guide our humble Tailoring Company in doing “Just So”!

We now live 30 minutes outside the City of London, and have done for the past 12 years. We enjoy bringing the finest cloth and garments from our native home town Huddersfield, Yorkshire to discerning and appreciative gentlemen. Our expertise is not limited to London, we also service New York, Moscow, Berlin and other major cities around the globe.
