About King & Allen

Founded in 2003 by Adam King and Jake Allen as a small low-key outfitter, King & Allen is now the UK’s most popular bespoke tailoring company. This has been achieved by skillfully minimising our costs and attracting new business through recommendations, thereby ensuring that when you buy a suit from us your money goes towards the suit itself, rather than a lavish shop on Savile Row or an extravagant advertising campaign. Top quality suits at a price everyone can afford – that is our Unique Selling Point.

Adam King [ Founding Partner]

adamI’ve always had a passion for bespoke tailoring and the lifestyle that accompanies it, inspired by the Rat Pack and the Bond films that I was brought up on. My background is in high-end retail and customer service. My job is to look after the customers, making sure that they enjoy every aspect of the experience of buying one of our suits. In my spare time, I enjoy adrenaline sports and travel. Something you didn’t know about me: I have a Guinness World Record, and have been in the book twice!

jakeI started my first business when I was 13, stripping the floorboards of my next door neighbour’s house, splitting the wood, and selling it door-to-door for tinder wood. I took a break from my enterprises to do an economics degree at Birmingham University (where I met Adam). It was the frustration of buying my first suit (I’m quite tall and thin) that inspired me to explore the concept of affordable bespoke tailoring, and King & Allen was born. My job is to look after the suits, ensuring that the quality of the measurements, the fabric and the tailoring is second to none. In my spare time, I buy and sell property. Something you didn’t know about me: I was once in a film with Gwyneth Paltrow!
