Handmade Two-Tone Tonic Suits
Bespoke Tailoring for Handmade Two-Tone Suits
Marc Griffith London is at the forefront of the two-tone suits’ revival, reintroducing the iconic tailoring style in 2007 with his partners. A Marc Griffith suit is bespoke, handmade, and cut to your exact specification from the highest quality Two-Tone Tonic in England. Our Tonic is a wool-mohair blend with absolutely no synthetic fabrics.
Marc Griffith is passionate about Tonic Suits and has been at the forefront of the new Tonic movement since 2007 when Marc and his partners brought them back with a unique tailoring experience. With our bespoke suits, there is no ready-to-wear, off-the-peg option. Every item is handmade and unique.
Bespoke is the pinnacle of fine tailoring. The fit will be perfect, and the cut will be tailored to you, not a stock pattern. There is simply no finer way of making a suit. Marc Griffith is proud to be at the forefront of the new Tonic movement, offering the finest Tonic Suits money can buy.
Marc Griffith suits have been featured in publications across the fashion world including in British Vogue. Famous clients of Marc Griffith include Suggs from Madness, The Specials, The Selecter and many more.
Each suit is 100% wool-mohair with no synthetic fabrics, just as the original 60s and 70s were. Marc Griffith creates handmade Tonic suits as they were intended to be – authentic, faithful to the original style, and entirely bespoke to you.
At our Soho bespoke tailors, you choose the style, cut, cloth, and lining, so the finer details are yours to command. Express your individuality in a bespoke tailored two-tone Tonic suit in authentic British style.
Our signature cut is a faithful recreation of the classic 1960s Tonic suit, a style that remains iconic to this day. Three buttons, slanted pockets, and a thin lapel with a working four button cuff, our suit is classic and distinct, whilst remaining strikingly modern.
This is not just another suit. It isn't off the peg, we do not make any ready to wear. Every suit is distinct, and will give you the distinction other suits seldom do. Your suit can be understated or electric; it's entirely up to you.
Handmade Two-Tone Suits: A British Tradition
Tonic suits became popular in the skinhead and ska scene, and later popularised by the Two Tone music of Madness, The Specials, and the Selecter among others in the late 1970s and 1980s. These are still faithful clients of Marc Griffith London to this day.
By the turn of the 21st century, Tonic Suits were off the market, and no new genuine Tonic was being made in England, until 2007, when Marc Griffith and his partners brought it back.
Since then, Marc has been at the forefront of the new handmade two-tone suits movement, with many clients spanning London and the UK.
With a new resurgence and appreciation for bespoke suits and tailoring and these timelessly stylish suits, they are becoming increasingly popular for occasion wear and weddings.
You don’t need to be a rockstar to wear Marc Griffith bespoke suits, you just need to have the attitude.
Marc Griffith, Bespoke Tailors in London
Marc Griffith sharpened his cutting and tailoring skills working for many of the legendary Savile Row tailors, including Huntsman, Anderson & Sheppard, and William Hunt, to name just a few.
His first shop, an eighteenth century townhouse in London’s Clerkenwell was opened on the crest of the 90’s economic boom.
Being off Savile Row and on the fringe of London’s square mile meant that not only rock legends such as Brian Ferry and Bruce Foxton beat a path to the door, but a roll call of business moguls and political high-flyers came knocking too.
Marc moved on from his original enterprise to co-found the Ace Face Clothing Company, bringing bespoke Tonic suits back into fashion at an affordable price. He then went on to found Marc Griffith London, based out of Berwick Street in Soho.
There is no tailor like Marc Griffith, and no suit like a two-tone Tonic suit.
