A delicate monogram hand sewn in fine silks has long been seen as the height of sartorial sophistication.

Hand Monogramming Services

Nothing beats the sublime sophistication of hand sewn initials on a treasured garment. A traditional emblem of style on a gentlemen’s shirt or a special gift that will be cherished forever, a monogram makes everything better.

For over 100 years Savile Row tailors have been sending shirts to Hand & Lock’s central London Embroidery studio for the finest hand monogramming. Now anyone can request our services for any garment for both single items or larger orders. With a wide selection of traditional and modern fonts in a variety of sizes and styles, we can offer an element of fine sartorial sophistication to any item or garment. Popular requests include wedding gifts, business shirts, slippers, gloves, hats, capes, pyjamas, bath robes, ties and more Monogramming makes the perfect personalised gift or a wonderful way of making your own treasured items unique to you.

Expertly Trained Embroiderers

Produced in the ancient traditional style, our expert embroiderers start by drawing your monogram, before using the finest cotton threads to hand embroider directly onto your garment with the utmost precision and care. Every single initial is a singular piece of art that can take a fully trained embroiderer between 20 and 60 minutes to complete. Our skilled embroiders train for up to three years to master the hundreds of letters, styles and stitches required.

Our design team can also create entirely bespoke monograms especially for you, producing brand new fonts, flourishes and details to satisfy your vision.

All work is completed in our central London Studio just five minutes walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station. Clients are welcome to visit the studio without an appointment.


Hand embroidered monogramming starts from £12.40 per letter plus VAT.
