TOMMY NUTTER: REBEL ON THE ROW

20th May – 22nd October 2011
The FTM is building up to the opening of its new exhibition with great excitement as it is going to contain some really special items. The Nutter order books read like a roll call of the great names of the day; Mick Jagger, Elton John, The Beatles, Charlie Watts, Neil Sedaka, Cilla Black, and Twiggy were all clients and through their generosity we have some great items on display.

When Nutters opened in 1969 on Savile Row, the staid and traditional world of bespoke tailoring entered a new era. It all started when Thomas Nutter, working as a junior sales assistant, met Edward Sexton, a cutter who had trained with Kilgour, French and Stanbury – one of the great bespoke establishments on the Row. It was this meeting that would lead to the formation of Nutters of Savile Row.
