2. My name is Tom Wharton. I had long felt there
was a gap in the market for ﬁne tailor-made
clothing as unique and individual as the wearer
but without the “Saville Row” price tag.
With this aim in mind I set out to explore the
fabric mills of England and Scotland looking for
beautiful and exciting fabrics.
In Yorkshire I found an expert team of cutters,
tailors and seamstresses who shared my dream.
In 2009 I founded Barrington Ayre Shirtmaker
& Tailor offering luxury affordable clothing to
our clients. Our bespoke garments range from
traditional classic to more contemporary styles
and we are proud to be “Made in England”.
I hope this brochure will inspire you and give
you an insight into my vision and the unique
personal service that we offer.
