History

Crichton Bespoke was founded as shirt makers more than 50 years ago. In the mid 1980s the Barker family, then influential in the London shirt trade acquired the business and expanded the company skill set to emphasise a focus on the traditional, British school of gentleman’s tailoring. It remains in the family to this day and is managed by Patrick Barker.

Today the business enjoys a reputation for creating some of finest bespoke suits in the UK, while our bespoke shirt offering is as strong as ever. We service a growing but highly discerning customer base with classic and contemporary pieces in the Savile Row tradition. 

Everything is made in our Chester work rooms, on the same premises as our Georgian show rooms. We invite you to come and visit us and take a tour of the art of bespoke tailoring. 

In 2015 the building was renamed Crichton House.
