Handmade Two-Tone Tonic Suits
Bespoke Tailoring for Handmade Two-Tone Suits
Marc Griffith 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, meaning it is handmade by Marc in London to your exact specification, made from the finest two-tone Tonic in England. Our Tonic is a wool-mohair blend with absolutely no synthetic fabrics.
When it comes to two-tone tonic, Bespoke tailoring is the only choice. The fit is perfect, the cut is tailored to your measurements, and the design is the result of a consultation between you and Marc. There is no compromise, and you should accept nothing less.
Marc is passionate about two-tone, and has been at the forefront of the new Tonic movement since 2007 when Marc and his partners founded the Ace Face Clothing Company. Since going solo, Marc Griffith London has tailored for likes of Madness, The Specials' Roddy Radiation, and The Selecter.
Marc Griffith suits have been featured in publications across the fashion world including in British Vogue.
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 manufactured 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 from London to the United States.
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.
