11th March 2019

Taking place in Mayfair, this intriguing new style event will showcase Thom Sweeney’s high-end tailoring alongside covetable timepieces

From its humble beginnings as a small business taking orders from a flat in Mayfair, Thom Sweeney has grown into an internationally recognised name and a pinnacle of luxury British menswear. Offering both bespoke services and ready-to-wear collections, the brand has become synonymous with top-notch craftsmanship, combining Italian finesse with British style. Now, Thom Sweeney has joined forces with James Marks of Phillips art and design auction house on an exciting new venture. Well Suited is a unique selling exhibition showcasing the world’s top independent watchmakers alongside exclusively tailored men's fashion.

On display include 25 rare watches for sale from leading horologists - Richard Mille, Grand Seiko, and Ludovic Ballouard, to name a few. The centrepiece of the exhibition takes the form of Philippe Dufour’s 'Simplicity', a true collector’s item with only a small number of pieces available in the capital.

Throughout the event, Thom Sweeney will be running on-site cutting rooms offering expert tailoring and bespoke cutting of various garments and patterns. “We cannot wait for the exhibition,” says co-founder Luke Sweeney. “Thom and I have collected watches for many years and have always felt that the mark of a man was excellent manners, a great suit and a beautiful watch.”

Well Suited will run from 15-21 of March at 30 Berkeley Square in Mayfair. For more details, please visit phillips.com or thomsweeney.co.uk
