Our Reason For Being

A good suit is the cornerstone of every man’s wardrobe. Or it should be. Finding a good suit – one that is custom made for the perfect fit – is a difficult thing. Berkshire & Black was founded to ensure that South African men might enjoy the same access to bespoke tailoring that is so common in Europe and America.


Our Tailors

The founders of Berkshire & Black travelled to three countries, and met with 30 would-be “tailors”. Then, we struck gold – a pair of seasoned tailors, each with a decade’s experience. Tailors who could finally provide South African gentlemen with expert advice, and bespoke garments of international quality.

Berkshire & Black is the reason that world-class bespoke attire is now available in South Africa. We cordially invite you to one of our private fittings, that you might enjoy the advice, styling and attention to detail for which Berkshire & Black is already known.


These guys do a really good job.
I ordered a suit and a shirt and both fitted perfectly. Really nice fabric quality and I could definitely notice a difference.
