“An impeccable man never goes unnoticed”
Founder and CEO Thomas M. Watson – Thom London. I studied fashion Merchandising in Vermont where I attended College. I was the only male fashion major in the program. Once I got out I began to work in the fashion industry, I worked for Barneys New York and went to school at night at FIT “Fashion Institute of Technology” for Menswear design.
After I graduated I worked for a few companies and realized I need to start my own Co. . At the same time I hooked up with a few pro athletes that needed clothing because being 6’7” I could relate to them and their fitting problems. They always would ask me “where did you get your clothes?” and I would tell them “I make them”; so I ended up finding tailors to make clothes for these athletes, and this is how I started to get big clients. I was also able to work with clients in Wall Street just by going to them, to their offices and designing wardrobe packages for them (suits, shirts and whatever they needed).
I was passionate about running a business in the fashion industry so in 1997 I opened my first showroom. I had tailors working for me and pattern makers and my custom clothing business was born.
