Kashket & Partners of London
Design and Development Like No Other
Kashket & Partners of London are the leading specialists for the design, development and manufacture of high-quality uniforms for ceremonial, parade and formal wear. Our dedicated team of more than 40 bespoke tailors and skilled artisans have developed their craft over hundreds of years, and are adept at maintaining our cutting edge uniform manufacturing capabilities.
We are proud to say that we are part of every parade – making uniforms that are instantly recognisable internationally as symbols of London and Great Britain, from the scarlet tunics of the guards outside Buckingham Palace to the dress and undress uniform of the Yeomen Warders – “the Beefeaters” – of the Tower of London. In a typical week our specialists would visit the The Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillary, The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment and all five Regiments of Foot Guards.
We are equally proud of the work we do with our corporate customers – when the appearance and elegance of staff is vital to the image of the company, Kashket & Partners can lend a knowledge of both tradition and style second to none. We have dressed the front of house staff and doormen for many prestigious and exclusive institutions in London and all over the world.
Kashket has also had a particularly close relationship with royalty, from the days before he moved to England when Alfred Kashket made felt hats for Tsar Nicholas II. We have made uniforms and suits for royalty all over the world, including eight kings as well as the British Royal Family from whom Firmin House (via Firmin & Sons Ltd) have the honour of a Royal Warrant.
We are particularly proud of our work for the royal weddings where we were responsible making 2,000 of the uniforms that appeared – from the ceremonial guards to the page boy uniforms which we designed and made from scratch. Of particular distinction, we were trusted to make the wedding uniforms of both Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex. Both were overseen by Russell Kashket and were replete with personalised touches – from the special hand-sewn pocket made for the best man to hold the Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding ring, to the lightweight fabrics and thermal regulation we use when designing our operational gear that were incorporated in a uniform for the Duke of Cambridge that remained cool under the spotlight’s full glare.
The same craft, diligence and skill that we bring to bear for our military and corporate clients is available for the discerning individual through Firmin Bespoke Tailoring.
