Established in 1885, Turnbull & Asser is a bespoke shirtmaker and luxury menswear label based in London. The company began when John Turnbull founded his eponymous store in 1885, later joined by Ernest Asser in 1893. When John died some years later, Ernest ran the business alone and renamed the company Turnbull & Asher, which it remains known as to this day. The company saw huge success and grew over the years from a haberdashery to a clothier, encompassing all areas of menswear. In 1903, Turnbull & Asser opened their Jermyn Street store, which remains the prime location of the label to date. In 1980, the Prince of Wales issued a royal warrant to Turnbull & Asser after many years as a customer of the label, demonstrating the quality of their designs and the notoriety of the brand.
Today, Turnbull & Asser is owned by Ali Fayed, with Becky French as Creative Director.
Offering bespoke shirting and ready-to-wear for men, Turnbull & Asser is timeless and luxurious. Their bespoke service allows the customer to choose from over 1000 fabrics, as well as various styles of collars, cuffs and linings to create their ideal, individualised shirt. Around 18 measurements are taken to produce the best fit possible, and the most flattering of cuts for ultimate comfort and confidence.
Ready-to-wear from Turnbull & Asser offers everything from sharp suiting and outerwear to opulent sleepwear and knitwear. Embodying a classic aesthetic with an enduring appeal, each design is crafted from fine materials such as cashmere, linen and silk of the highest quality. Patterned shirts, printed silk ties and kimono-inspired gowns exude opulence, met with understated staples for the everyday such as wool trousers, trench coats and handmade jumpers.
With three stores in London and one in New York, Turnbull & Asser collections can also be accessed online via the brand’s website.
