Fielding & Nicholson

About us

About Us

Despite a highly acclaimed and award-winning career working for a premium tailoring brand, in 2006 Ian Fielding-Calcutt saw the opportunity to create something new, organic and unique. The new business would retain his core ethics of exceptional service, design and most importantly bring a ‘new luxury’ element to the tailoring world. On a chance meeting with serial entrepreneur and investor Adam Nicholson the brand was born – on top of a mountain in the Swiss Alps! After a year in the business, Ian bought Adam out to allow him to work on other projects.


The business has grown steadily over the years, in 2014 being ranked amongst the top ten tailors of London. It’s also one of the few tailoring brands with its own in-house cutter, Raymond, who has over 40 years experience in the business working with the likes of Paul Smith, Anderson & Shepard and personally for members of the British royal family. At present, the business consists of himself, Consulting Partner Alex Riley (8 years service), Senior Tailoring Consultant Harry Redin (4 years service), Operations Manager Tom Strangwige (4 years service), Head Cutting Consultant Raymond Chung, Tailor & Cutting Consultant Sein Lei Minh and Cris Zamoranos (Consultant Marketing Executive).

In the future the business aims to become the number one luxury tailoring provider in the world (based on quality and service), working with many famous faces and delivering exceptional service, without fail, to everyone it works with.

The Senior Team

We have a long-established team which can call upon over 70 years worth of experience in the industry. We do not have a revolving door of new people so you can be sure that you’re getting many times the quality of service that you would in a standard retail store or made to measure provider.

Ian Fielding-Calcutt
Ian has always had an interest in tailoring and fashion and grew up wearing 3-piece bespoke suits to college! After an award-winning career working for premium tailoring brand Tom James, he started the company from scratch in 2006. He is an exceptional measurements tailor and businessman, striving for perfection in everything he does.Working with his magnificent team, Ian’s next goal is to secure Fielding & Nicholson as the only truly global luxury tailoring brand.
Alex Riley
A 'local lad' from Huddersfield. Alex grew up with a fashion designer Mum, who cut and made her own collections. Alex has subsequently grown up surrounded by fabrics, patterns, fashion books and not to mention some questionable outfits during his childhood! He has a very good eye and an impeccable sense of style and so creates a lot of trust with his clients. He joined the team in 2011 as a tailoring consultant and rose through the ranks. He was recently promoted to Consulting Partner in 2018
Tom Strangwige
Having joined the company as a Tailoring Consultant back in 2015, Tom soon realised his strengths lay more in the organisational and operations side. After 6 months with the business he moved into operations management and the rest, as they say is history.Tom’s current duties include supporting the Tailoring Consultants, ensuring orders are placed and delivered on time and visiting clients when required to do fittings. In addition he is constantly looking at ways to streamline and develop business processes.
Raymond Chung
Raymond has spent over 40 years cutting and making suits for ladies and men. From his native Hong Kong to the UK he has a vast array of experience to call on as both an exceptional cutter and talented alterations specialist. Such is his skill level that he draws and cuts directly onto the cloth, rather than creating a paper pattern to draw around. Raymond has made suits for members of British royalty and worked on Savile Row for several tailors, in addition to cutting bespoke for Paul Smith. He also worked as a military cutter for Goldings, dressing the officers of Sandringham.
