Making Wigs for Silks, etc. Ede & Ravenscroft



A fascinating visit to Chancery Lane, to watch my son being fitted out for his forthcoming QC ceremony.

Ede and Ravenscroft has over 300 years' experience of specialist legal wear tailoring and wig making.



The oldest tailors in London, founded 1689. We were lucky enough to be invited to learn something about the making of legal wigs.








After inspecting the ominous sentencing wig, we retired to The Seven Stars.
