The history of The British Army plays a fundamental part in the history of Britain itself and the tradition of tailoring to create the perfect suit, silhouette and the modern visual essence of how we perceive the role of man to be and his conquests.

Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson (1758-1805) is one of the most respected heroes from the Royal Navy particularly respected for his service during the Napoleonic wars. His ground winning and unconventional tactics and outstanding comprehension of strategies turned him into an inspirational leader that achieved naval victories that shaped history: the most notable was the battle of Trafalgar in 1805, a battle fought between the British, French and Spanish in the Napoleonic wars.

Worn on Nelson’s Trafalgar uniform, one epaulette has been partially damaged by the shot that killed him.

Since 1655 Firmin House (now part of Kashet & Partners) has touched history in a way few tailors have, they were present at the Battles of The Nile, Trafalgar, Waterloo and Gettysburg. They are the choice of aristocracies around the world, from the outfits down to the design of the buttons.

Firmin House is one of the few companies that have attained a power beyond monetary terms.

With over 350 years of history in the making, they are older than the Bank of England.
