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), Operations Manager Ellie Robinson (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.
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.
Here at Fielding & Nicholson we believe in developing strong partnerships to enable us to deliver the best possible service to our clients. With this in mind, we have developed strong relationships with luxury brands that provide us with fixed premises for fitting and consultation purposes.
Our stunning showroom on the first floor allows clients to relax and have a drink in a calm environment, just off the iconic Savile Row.

Clients can enjoy a playlist of their choice and peruse cloth with chilled drinks from water to tailors’ old favourite rum. There are over 1000 cloths available to view courtesy of our partnership with luxury cloth merchants Dormeuil which owns this iconic building.
