The Royal Warrant

Benson & Clegg is a proud holder of the Royal Warrant to HRH The Prince of Wales, an honour we have held since 1992. We are also proud members of The Royal Warrant Holders Association. A Royal Warrant of Appointment is a mark of recognition of those who have supplied goods or services to the Households of The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh or The Prince of Wales for at least five years, and who have an ongoing trading arrangement. The symbol of the Royal Warrant represents a company has achieved the highest standards of service, quality and excellence.

Perhaps the most famous customer in the Benson & Clegg ledgers is His Majesty King George VI, King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth. This was an honour that led to Benson & Clegg being granted our first Royal Warrant back in 1944. The King had originally been a customer of the company whilst holding the title of His Royal Highness The Duke of York back in 1937, but following his accession to the throne Benson & Clegg were formally granted the honour of the Royal Warrant as his bespoke tailors. This was a glorious achievement and esteemed honour for the firm. In being given this honour, Benson & Clegg were responsible for the creation of the King's formal attire, including his suits, morning dress, as well as a large proportion of his military uniform. In fact our tailors were responsible for the King's famous double breasted overcoat, often seen in many historical photographs. During his reign King George VI epitomised British sartorial style and sophistication, and his suits were admired both at home and abroad. His clothing represented the best in British tailoring, a tradition we have continued to this day.
