About us

Our company

Barrington Ayre Shirtmaker & Tailor believe in providing the finest bespoke and made to order clothing, lovingly handmade in the traditional manner, concentrating on quality, individuality and personal service.

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.

Founder and Managing Director - Tom Wharton


"I have nothing but praise for Tom, and many superlatives to boot. He is an absolute pleasure to do business with on every level and his end products of of the highest quality.

He is clearly incredibly knowledgeable in his field but able to give excellent advice to the untrained eye.

Tom delivered a morning suit that fitted like a glove and equally importanly, it was all on time and with the minimum amount of fuss. I will definitely use Barrington Ayre many times again." Jerry, Sales Manager

Made a tall 'odd shaped 47 year old fella' look ten years younger in his wife's eyes, with a fantastic tweed jacket creation.... can't get better than that! Andy, Director

The shirts that I have had from Barrington Ayre are by far the best shirts that I have. I have 10 from them and wear them on rotation most weeks and even after 2 years of heavy wear they are still in fantastic condition and look like new. I am about to order another 5 or so to refresh my wardrobe. Richard, London
