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.

This 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.

Whilst they offer a house style which is based on the London Cut (sharp shoulder/accentuated jacket waist/clean trouser line) we are also well known for design interpretation and flexibility.

Tom Baker works strictly in the traditional British bespoke manner (template development, fittings process etc.) and take pride in his repeat custom; all suits are cut, sewn and finished by hand on site, under Tom’s personal supervision. His obsession with detail and perfection has earned him considerable respect from fellow tailors and designers. He is widely acknowledged as an innovator and whilst he maintains Savile Row techniques he constantly evolves modern menswear style. As a result his work is regularly featured in a variety of media including the press, television and red carpet events.
