When it comes to queer fashion you almost don’t even need eyes to know Tomboy is EVERYTHING. But you know what’s even better than “Tomboy Fashion”? British Tomboy. British Tomboy is chalked full of universal prestige, effortless wearability and century transcending cuts.
Warning: Prepare yourself for what you are about to see. Your taste and personal style will never be the same.
Meet Sara (SJ) Weston.
Gentlewoman, heartthrob and cross pond tailor extraordinaire, SJ is the founder of Thomas Thomas – a British design house out of London that make clothes for modern, grown up tomboys. The Thomas Thomas aesthetic is all about vintage inspired British tailoring presented with a modern flare.
SJ has defined the label by investing in the cut, to offer truly androgynous tailoring. SJ and her team have spent over 1000 hours drafting patterns for different body shapes that blend the nuances of menswear with a shape that flatters women. Respecting the fact that every body is different and one cut doesn’t fit all.
Thomas Thomas has a unique collection system I absolutely love. They release a different look every month. This sustainable production system allows them to be able to offer great prices on hand cut clothing, as it’s all done by pre-order.
This month’s release – Collection 02 is all about dressing up for the holiday season. Mixing British classics like tweed, dogtooth check wool and velvet to create a strong, sexy tailored vibe.
02 seen here worn by two friends of the brand as seen here Janita (Right) and Carmen Vandenberg (left).
Soo much yes right?!
Thomas Thomas is inspired by women who are out there doing their thing and changing the world. Carmen and Janita are these women.
Carmen a musician is currently on a world tour with Jeff Beck, and is second in command on the guitar.
Janita a singer songwriter based in Brooklyn who produces earthly and sensual sounds, check out her ‘Traces Upon Your Face’. Ok, back to the 02 look.
Can we talk about the attention to detail in these pieces? The pop of red on the ‘locker loop’ is a statement piece in itself!
The carefully selected fabrics of the 02 line have got me in the Christmas spirit already and it’s only Nov 1. Who knew what a little well chosen houndstooth could do?! If you need me this Holiday season you can find me wearing this exact outfit. Let’s be real, probably for the 12 days of xmas straight through. If you want a little old world modern in your look this holiday season, need something to roast chestnuts in, carol or just laugh over a pint with old friends in a dimly lit pub? You can order any of the pieces from Collection 02 by 9th November for shipment on 23rd November on their site Thomasthomas.london.
Thomas Thomas also custom make any of their house styles in any one of their fabrics, and provide a bespoke tailoring service from their showroom in London. For more information on their wares you can holler at them at email@example.com
