    I bought a two piece suit recently, it looks bespoke and the label reads 'Coupe par Henry Montpellier'

    I assume the tailor name is Henry and I think the suit is probably from the 1960's, has anyone heard of this tailor or have any info?

    Thanks

    Thanks, looks like I'm going to have no joy with this, I'll try and post some pictures soon, it is an interseting suit.

    This reads "Tailored(cut) by Henry Montpellier", where the name of the tailor is Henry Montpellier.

    It's almost certainly bespoke, given what is written and the estimated age of the suit.
