Carters Country Wear was founded in 1977 by Betty Carter, the Mother of the present owner and in-house tailor, Jeremy Shaw, who has over 25 years of experience in supplying bespoke suits at affordable prices.
We pride ourselves on offering the finest quality suits with fabrics from Savile Row cloth merchants and Yorkshire based tweed mills. We have thousands of cloth samples for you to choose from; from Scottish cashmere to modern lightweight washable tweeds and cotton or corduroy.
From bespoke business and formal (black & White tie) suits, to country and shooting suits and morning dress or wedding suits; all of our tailored suits are made in England by our highly experienced tailors, by hand, to the finest quality, allowing you to buy with confidence, knowing that you have bought something that will serve you for many years to come.
Jeremy will guide you through the entire process of buying a bespoke suit, from choosing the cloth, selecting the lining, as well as advising you on the style and fit that meets both your expectations and suits your particular body shape. We can also include a second pair of trousers, a matching coat or a waistcoat; whatever your needs may be.
We offer a full wedding service, providing clothing from classic morning coats to tweed, linen and lightweight summer suits.
Jeremy supplies many of the leading shoots in the country with their shooting suits. He has designed and supplied tweed, woven in Yorkshire for individual clients and Estates. He has clients throughout America and beyond. As a shooting man himself he has the technical knowledge to ensure your suit is functional as well as smart and comfortable.
