Q - What is the full range of options for the bespoke range?

Q - Cameron Charles products are made in Europe. Can they really be British, if so so how?
Cameron Charles was conceived in London.
We make our jackets in Europe because that is where we have found the skills in leather clothing manufacture that meet our ambitions and standards for the brand.
Cameron Charles clothes are British because they follow traditional British patterns and are cut in a traditional British way.
Q - Are Cameron Charles jackets handmade?
All of our patterns are cut by hand.
For a Savile Row suit, all of the stitching that is visible must be by sewn by hand. Even the most skilled tailors will not produce hand stitching that is absolutely even. When this is seen on wool suits, the effect is charming. On leather, any uneven stitches do not convey the same charm. For this reason our jackets are machine stitched.
Q - How long will a Cameron Charles jacket last? Is there a guarantee?
Whilst we can’t provide a lifetime guarantee for our jackets, as every customer will wear and treat their jacket differently, we are confident that if taken care of our jackets will last for a lifetime. Please see the leather care section for more information about how to take best care of your jacket so that you can enjoy it for decades to come.
Q - Are Cameron Charles leather jackets intended for everyday wear?
Q - Are you able to tell me more about the materials that have been used for the jackets?
The leather that we select to be used in our jackets is of the very finest quality and has been chosen to drape elegantly.
The tartan that we source is 100% wool and we buy directly from the finest mills in Scotland.
The gun metal zips that we use on our jackets are quite simply the very best available.
Q - Why did you start Cameron Charles?
We have always wanted the freedom to make our own clothes, the type that we ourselves would like to wear, and to have the ability to influence the way that other people dress as well.
Q - What tailoring experience does the Cameron Charles team have?
Cameron Charles’ Head of Design and Production has attended master classes at Savile Row, and undertaken three years of internships with bespoke tailors in London.
