Born in 1943, Thomas Albert Nutter, the son of a café owner, revolutionised men’s fashion. After initially studying plumbing and then architecture, Tommy Nutter left college at the age of 17 to work for William & Ward, a traditional British tailoring company. In 1969, at the age of 26, Tommy Nutter, financially backed by Cilla Black and Peter Brown from the Beatles’ record company, opened his first shop “Nutters of Savile Row”.

Tommy Nutter’s designs transformed Savile Row. He delighted in rebellious interpretations of classic British designs, in exaggerated proportions and traditional tweeds and worsted cloths reinvented in bold, often clashing, colours, prints, and textures.

From 1982 for the rest of his career, Tommy's shop was "Tommy Nutter® - 19 Savile Row", a business he owned jointly with the Crombie® group, selling both Tommy's bespoke and ready-to-wear collections. Tommy designed the clothes and serviced the customers, while Crombie supplied him with its famous British cloth. Characteristically, Tommy Nutter described his 1983 collection for men and women as “a delicious menu… wanting to deviate from the boring city image”.
