Sir Tom Baker – Bespoke or Off the Peg?

specialises in classically cut formal suits and modern cutting edge suits. You might not be a rock star but if you’d like to feel like one you might consider one of his suits, either or off the peg. Sir Tom trained at Hardy Amies. He’s been creating suits for over 10 years from his based workshop, and he’s recently launched his own ready-to-wear collection.

I love this purple jacket. I think every man should have at least a hint of purple in his wardrobe this season. The ready-to-wear is a delight: beautiful wools, lame and a host of other unexpected fabrics, used to great effect, with a hint of embellishment. His signature cut is the single breasted, 1 button peak lapel suit, based on a classic English silhouette, with clean lines and sharp edges. How sexy is that!

A bespoke suit is handmade, designed to your own specification, created without the use of a pre-existing pattern – otherwise it’s made-to-measure. You’ll hear the term semi-bespoke – which might include work done by machine. A true bespoke suit takes time – usually about 6 weeks as even the button holes are hand sewn. You’ll often have about 3 fittings, and then you have the perfect suit.

I love these . They are so cool – I love when men wear edgy . This is one of the things that I love about London – the way men dress. They have such great style options. What girl can resist a well-dressed man?
