Doublet of Charles of Blois, circa 1360 [BSD-CB01]
The cut and style of the doublet is unparalleled. The selections of color or brocade are also excellent. My review has most to do with the quality of service I received while ordering the doublet. The staff at H.E. walked me through every question over the course of a number of emails. They were prompt to keep me updated on the progress, took photos, and even called me on the phone to clear up business issues promptly and personally. For an expensive custom item it's important to be certain you're going to get the final product you want. Because of the custom aspect it takes more than a good seamstress to achieve that goal. H.E. has both the sewing and service acumen to do this garment justice and get you what you want.
