about us

  • history

I am very passionate about the process of garment design and construction, working very closely with our manufacturers, yarn and fabric makers in Italy, Portugal and Turkey, they are an integral part of the garment life, bringing a wealth of experience and traditional making skills.

I had the same passion at the beginning of my career selling shirts and jersey on my boutique looking stall at the then exciting Camden Market, from there a stall in Kensington Market and a unit in Hyper Hyper, a showcase for young designers in the mid 80's.

Opening my first small retail store on the Kings Road, followed by a flagship store on Floral Street, Covent Garden which became one of the most exciting streets for the new era of menswear in the 1990's where we are today. We have a further two stores located in Soho and Marylebone, we are also stocked by many independent boutiques and department stores around the UK and overseas.

I am inspired by a million things daily, from an early age I remember the homemade, printed abstract textural designs of the curtains in the beach huts that lined the promenade in Poole, my home town. I also searched the charity shops and jumble sales locally, finding quality second hand clothing, including Jaeger, Burberry and Aquascutum. I still take inspiration from the past, my favourite decades being the 50's and 60's, but I am equally happy creating something new from the most simple, modern yarns and fabrics of today.

I am proud that we have a loyal customer following and we sell to men of all ages who prefer to buy, wear, keep and treasure, our aim has always been to produce beautiful, wearable clothing season after season, that we know you will enjoy.
