The Brook Taverner Story

The Brook Taverner story started in 1912 with Frank Brook and Walter Taverner on a boat to Calcutta. Their first business venture was selling buttons to tailors, but soon linings and then cloth were added to the range. It was cloth which propelled the business forward, and despite tricky times in between the two wars, one of the largest stock supported fabric ranges in the country was built up concentrating entirely on the menswear.

In 1967, with many traditional tailors’ shops disappearing, it was decided that a cut, make and trim service should be offered. Five years later, this led to a comprehensive ready-to-wear range being introduced. Today, Brook Taverner, based in Yorkshire, is one of the UK’s most respected names in men’s classic tailoring, and is based on three principles: quality, service and price.

The company prides itself on its exceptional craftsmanship and detailing, cutting no corners to deliver the perfect finish to every garment. Because the firm specialises in only manufacturing men’s suits, coats and over coats, its depth of knowledge and experience is barely rivalled by any other menswear maker in the country.


Brook Taverner Today

Probably the largest stock supported collection of men’s suits, jackets and trousers soon evolved with the aim of creating stylish quality garments of universal appeal, backed by a quick delivery. Today Brook Taverner garments can be found in independent menswear specialists and department stores throughout the UK and Ireland.

Our fabric business still flourishes and supplies many of today’s traditional tailors, including Saville Row.
