Jamie Alaise and Matt Taylor met in 2006. Alaise Taylor was borne from a friendship between two like-minded individuals with a passion for smart, distinctive, bespoke fashion.
Jamie had always appreciated beautiful suits and shirts, admiring pristinely dressed actors, and the bygone tailoring of the mobsters they often portrayed. His first suit was purchased aged twelve, affirming that this was his set look for life.
Jamie never made it to the movie screens or Italy but ventured to Manchester and the world of business. The creative relationship behind Alaise Taylor was sparked when Matt became the creative force behind many of Jamie’s favourite bespoke shirts and suits. Before long it seemed to make sense for them to work together. Jamie’s passion for working intimately to develop small businesses paired with Matt’s tailoring skills promised to be a recipe for success.
Matt’s passion for bespoke formalwear was sparked the moment he took his first job as a shop-hand in a shirt-makers and tailors. Honing his craft, Matt measured and designed a wide variety of bespoke items during his ten-year tenure. While developing the art of incorporating individual customer requirements and preferences into shirt and suit making, he progressed from shop junior to production manager and director.
Keen to cultivate the craft of the bespoke and enriched by a Mancunian heritage of textiles and clothing manufacture, Alaise Taylor produces formal wear for both men and women.
