With over 20 years experience in the fashion, clothing and tailoring business, our expert tailoring consultant is committed to providing the ultimate experience beginning at the consultation stage right through to the moment you feel your expertly crafted and tailored suit on your back.

We offer the very best cloths from manufacturers around the world, using the finest wools, mohair’s, linens, tweeds, silks and cashmere.

Our expert tailors attention to detail and deep knowledge of the intricacies that are required to produce the perfect suit every time.

Our unique arrangement with our tailors truly sets us above the rest of our competitors when it comes to lead times and with production and delivery generally 4 weeks from date of order.

We aim to provide a modern, less stuffy experience than a traditional tailors may offer, breaking down the barriers and approachability and pre-conceptions that many people have about the tailoring industry.

Black Gold Suits

  • Business suits
  • Wedding Suits
  • Dinner Suits
A perfect business suit is essential when creating a strong first impression. The choice of cloth dictates the overall look of the business suit but it also depends on the individuals style as to whether you choose a solid colour, checks, herringbones or pin stripe pattern.

However we must always take into account the environment the suit is to be worn. A slim tailored suit with cropped leg length is not going to reflect well in the business world. Similarly a wide pin striped 'power suit' will look out of place and out of touch in the design or media industry.

At Black Gold we take the time to discuss our clients needs and the role the professional or business suit is going to play in their working life.

Our sole focus during this phase is to make sure the compliments this role entirely.

Your big day is a big deal to us. Whether it's a formal traditional wedding or a more relaxed informal look you are after, we dedicate ourselves into creating your dream suit for your big day.

When creating the perfect wedding suit not only do we take into account the theme or location of the occasion but equally as important is our clients style and personality and of course body shape.

We aim to create a suit that befits each individual but we also place a big emphasis on the photography. Wedding photography is such an important part of the day, and the look and styling of a grooms suit must sit well in the photographs. A suit cloth or fit that looks 'current' and fashionable now, may look dated very quickly.

Our mission is to consider every single element of your wedding day creating a look and feel that will last in the memory forever.
Our event suits service offers a wide range of options, styles and fabrics that combine to create a fine piece of craftsmanship that befits all manner of event or function.

The horseracing season with events such as Royal Ascot or Glorious Goodwood or the Epsom Derby weekend offers our clients the opportunity to really express their personalities. From formal top hat and tails to a full 3 piece suit, we encourage our clients to explore the huge variety of made to measure options and to really express themselves and their personality through their suit.

From tweeds to checks to vibrant colours the options to stand out from the crowd are vast and exciting.
Whether its a casual meal with friends, shooting in the countryside or travelling, our enormous collection of stunning cloth options from world famous cloth manufacturers that include Holland & Sherry, Dormeiul, Reda and Bateman & Ogden, is sure to satisfy the most demands of any occasion.
When it comes to a black tie or dinner suit event, only a beautifully tailored black gold made to measure suit will do.

The Dinner suit is traditionally made in black, navy or white. Our relationship with Loro Piana , REDA, Dormeuil, Bateman Ogden let’s you choose from some of the most luxurious fabrics In the world along with a vast variety of linings to create a truly stunning and elegant tuxedo that you will feel simply incredible in whilst wearing.

Our Creative Director will guide you through all of the style options which include lapel style such as a peak or shawl lapel, pocket configuration, silk covered buttons and piping on the trousers, ultimately producing a magnificent suit that you will love and cherish and always enjoy wearing.

A well tailored dinner suit is one of the best investments a gentleman can make to his wardrobe.
