The Tailoring Lounge
Our Iconic Home
The Piccadilly Arcade, with its grand Edwardian aesthetic, stands as proudly today as it did when it first opened over 100 years ago. With its rich history and stunning architecture, the arcade is an epicentre for men’s style and home to some of the finest purveyors of luxury in the world, a relaxing thoroughfare where time, momentarily, stands still. It is at number 9 Piccadilly Arcade that Benson & Clegg took up residency in 1971, serving the great and the good of London’s high society as we had done for so many years prior on Bury Street, just a stone’s throw away.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB
Tailoring, of course, is at the forefront of what we do and, much in the spirit of Messrs Benson and Clegg, it is our ambition to create a wholly unique experience for our clients, offering a place where you’re not just fitted for a suit, but are made to feel part of the Benson & Clegg family – more private members club than traditional tailor's shop.
RELAX AND UNWIND
As you ascend the staircase, passing the faces of our eminent clientele who hang from the wall, you will step into the tailoring lounge – an inner sanctum of calm and tranquillity, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Wood panelled walls and sumptuous furniture create a sense of warmth and comfort, while our grand cutting board stands proudly, meaning you will never forget that you are in the company of master craftsmen.
For your delectation and enjoyment, we have partnered with some of our famous neighbours so you can enjoy consultations and fittings while fully immersing yourself in the unique world of St James’s. Peruse the cloth books as you delight on a cocktail or two from our bar, curated by Berry Bros. & Rudd. Enjoy your fittings as you relax with a cup of tea from Fortnum & Mason – Royal Blend is a firm favourite here! Or take a moment to indulge and refresh with our selection of amenities from D. R. Harris, before the time comes to step back outside. However you spend your time with us, we hope you’ll agree that, at Benson & Clegg, you’ll be afforded a truly memorable experience.
