Luxury Made in England

Bespoke & Made to Order Clothing


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 explored 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 website will inspire you and give an insight into my vision and our unique personal service.


At Barrington Ayre we pride ourselves in making quality individual tailor-made clothing from your choice of fabric.

We work closely with you to create bespoke unique garments. Whether you are looking for a classic navy suit, a simple bespoke shirt, tweed shooting attire with working shoulder pleats, brightly coloured trousers, a bespoke tweed wedding suit, a classic wedding suit, tweed jackets, boating or rowing blazer or even a pair of house shoes, our tailors can create your perfect bespoke outfit!

Our female clients can also select from our wide range of beautiful, versatile fabrics to tailor make fabulous and flattering bespoke clothing as unique as the individual.

You can visit us in the relaxed atmosphere of our showroom in the Cotswolds, or let us come to you by taking advantage of our visiting tailor service that is available throughout The South West, London, Sheffield, Manchester and UK wide by appointment.


Sourced from all over the British Isles our quality fabrics showcase the very finest classic and contemporary colours and designs.

We offer hundreds of fabrics, available in a selection of weights and designs including over 2000 tweeds, perfect for any bespoke suit, jacket or trousers.

Our extensive tweed selection aims to provide fabrics not available on the high street and includes tweed from small mills found whilst visiting Scotland.

At Barrington Ayre we also pride ourselves on our comprehensive range of cashmere, flannel, cotton, linen and corduroy.

Whatever the fabric, we ensure that it is of the very highest quality.

Barrington Ayre Shirts


At our workshops in Yorkshire most of our cutters, tailors and seamstresses have worked in the industry all their lives.

We are proud to say that all of our bespoke tailor made suits, bespoke and tweed jackets, trousers, tweed country clothing, made to order slippers, bespoke dressing gowns, overcoats, hats and bespoke ladies clothing are made right here in England and carry the revered “Made in England”

For superior quality, flexibility and an exceptional personal design service our bespoke shirts are made in France, the home of “haute couture”.

No one makes tartan kilts and traditional dress better than the Scottish which is why all our bespoke kilts, tailor made tartan trousers and golf breeks are made using traditional techniques in the Highlands.


Our showroom is situated in Cirencester in the heart of the Cotswolds. Here we house samples of many of our designs as well as our extensive collection of exciting fabrics.

We provide a full alteration service and are happy to alter garments that are not our own.

Barrington Ayre is open throughout the week, evenings and weekends by appointment.


When we meet we will chat through the style, cut and fabric best suited to you and your bespoke garment. You will then see a range of possible designs and styles to inspire you before choosing your perfect cloth and colour.

We offer a full initial consultation, fitting at baste stage, along with a final fitting and any additional fittings needed to ensure that you are 100% happy with your unique new garment.
