Now that we are properly into the New Year and all those resolutions we set out at the start of 2016 have been broken, lets work on keeping the only one that matters… finding the perfect suit. It has become so important to the modern gentleman that their suit fits, evokes personality and stands out from the norm. It can be over-whelming looking for a suit but these tailors will have you looking your best in no time.
Sir Tom Baker
Tom Baker specialises in both traditional and avant-garde bespoke tailoring. He trained for five years at Hardy Amies (Savile Row) until 1996 when he founded Sir Tom Baker in Soho, London. It was on Savile Row that he was taught to cut and fit in the most classical English way. Tom Baker's traditional training combined with natural flair has put him at the forefront of bespoke tailoring today. His ability and willingness to work closely with each and every customer has earned him a loyal following, attracting television personalities, musicians, actors, artists, captains of the industry and politicians to the door. These include Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), Rhys Ifans, Jonathan Ross, Noel Fielding, John Cooper Clarke, Stephen Jones (milliner), Barry Manilow, Liam Howlett/Keith Flint of the Prodigy, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Roger Taylor (Queen) to name but a few. So if you are looking for a suit with rock star flair drop in and have a chat.

Huntsman is a traditional tailor that understands the modern man and his lifestyle; there is something for everyone here.
