Mark has always believed living life to the full, and this started from a young age, from wandering around Pakistan and Afghanistan in his late teens to crossing the Atlantic with a friend on his catamaran. Leaving UCL with a degree in Economics he took the unusual path of becoming a self employed salesman selling ties to menswear stores all over Europe..A few years later and with over 100000 miles on his old Volvo, he launched aged 24 his menswear brand. Designing his own tie fabrics he soon found an audience selling to the likes of Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Beams and Tomorrowland in Japan...Bon Marche and Agnes B in Paris and Barneys New York to name a few. Fashion shows followed with Sehm in Paris and Pitti Uomo in Florence...Designer collective New York.
From there a complete menswear collection was created, his brother Neil joined the company and they opened their first shop on Boulevard St Germain in Paris, followed by 10 stores in London, the culmination being the flagship 31 Savile Row. In 2017 Mark sensing retail was taking a dramatic turn and that their USP "THE PERFECT FIT" could not be delivered online, he closed Savile Row to offer made to measure at ready wear prices. Once fitted clients can order online their shirt, suit, jacket ,trousers and get the perfect fit delivered to their doorstep in a record 18 days. Without stores the company is very nimble and now opening showrooms all over the world, in the meantime for those not able to get fitted we are offering ready wear in various fits and customisable as an alternative.Everything we do is designed by Mark, our patterns are exclusive and reflect the attention to detail and pride Mark has for anything carrying his name.
