As we step into 2024, Gresham Blake stands as a beacon of style, craftsmanship, and inclusivity. Our journey is one of breaking molds and transcending traditional boundaries, driven by a passion for bespoke tailoring that empowers and celebrates every individual.
At Gresham Blake, our mantra is simple: style shouldn’t have limits. From day one, our mission was clear: to open the world of bespoke tailoring to all, far beyond the traditional confines. We’ve dedicated ourselves to crafting pieces that not only empower but also echo the distinct essence of each individual who walks through our doors. The journey began with the first suit we ever tailored, and it was a revelation. Bespoke isn’t just about the fabric or the fit; it’s about creating a space where everyone can express themselves freely, where every garment tells a story. That’s the heart of us, where bespoke is for everyone.
"The first ever suit Gresham made..."
Now, traditionally, bespoke tailoring is very male-dominated and posh.
I have a few traits that do not quite fit into that mould.
Firstly, I am female.
Secondly, I am not white.
Thirdly, I am very vertically challenged!
From the first bespoke suit that Gresham had made for me, I was completely hooked on tailoring. Our vision was to provide this to everybody, in particular women.
Redefining Bespoke: Women's Tailoring at Gresham Blake
Bespoke tailoring at Gresham Blake is tearing down the old barriers, moving away from the traditional menswear domain and the outdated notions of 'gentlemen's clubs' and 'country estates.' It's about crafting contemporary, well-made clothing that celebrates the individual, not the stereotype. We understand the struggle many women face in finding clothes that truly fit and flatter them, and we're here to change that narrative. Our women's tailoring services are designed to empower, to fit perfectly, and to reflect the unique style of each woman who chooses us. With a team where 80% are women, we're not just women's tailors; we're pioneers reshaping the industry. 'Oh, it’s a women's tailor,' some might say. To that, we proudly respond, 'Absolutely, and it’s about time.' At Gresham Blake, we've not just earned our 'pinstripes'; we're redefining them
