Dressing up at Ede & Ravenscroft

     This baronet’s robe was worn for about six hours during the coronation of  HM Queen Elizabeth on 2nd June 1953. It was made by London’s oldest tailor and robemaker Ede & Ravenscroft and since the coronation it has been stored in the company’s vaults. Ede & Ravenscroft, which was founded in 1689, has an extraordinary history of making ceremonial robes. It is also one of the best men’s outfitters in the country for those of us who are not aristocrats, members of the Order of the Garter, High Court judges, university chancellors and the like.

     This is a robe of a judge from the UK Supreme Court. From the silk damask fabric to the gold embroidery, it is a concoction of extraordinary skill and delicacy.
