OurHistory

Benson & Clegg was founded in 1937 by Harry Benson and Thomas Clegg at its original premises of 34 Bury Street London SW1. After thirty years cutting experience they decided the time was right for them to branch out and bring their own unique style of tailoring to customers.

Over the years the company branched out into a large range of menswear accessories such as neckwear, buttons, badges and cufflinks, all of which was inspired by our tailoring heritage and dedication to classic British style.

Today the business is owned by Barry Austin and Mark Gordon.

A royalPartnership

The company has a strong royal connection. Back in 1944 Benson & Clegg was granted a Royal Warrant to His Majesty King George VI as his official tailors, entitling the company to display the royal coat of arms. Then in 1992 we were granted a further Royal Warrant to HRH The Prince Of Wales for the supply of buttons, badges and military neckwear.

We have established a reputation for the traditional blazer and button combination.
