“Our philosophy is simple – To produce elegant luxury clothing of superior comfort that accentuates the male form.”
Jamie Henfrey, Founder of Marc Oliver
The Marc Oliver brand was created by bespoke tailor Jamie Henfrey. Son to a father involved in the worlds of film, theatre and fashion, Jamie grew up around movie stars and style icons. He developed a deep love for luxury fashion and began his tailoring career in his teens. He honed his craft with a major outfitter in London, dressing some of the world’s leading actors, musicians, athletes, and politicians.
As his knowledge and skill flourished, promotions into senior roles allowed him to regularly visit Milan and explore the contrasts and similarities between classic British, and modern Italian tailoring methods. On a visit to Milan in early 2008, Jamie decided to form Marc Oliver, to produce Savile Row quality tailoring with a greater relevance to modern day lifestyles.
At Marc Oliver, you are the focal point of the design. Bespoke tailoring shouldn’t be about imposing a rigid brand style on you. It should be about establishing a customer’s needs, and helping them find their ideal look. Rather than being known for a singular style, we choose to be known for the clean, slim lines of our tailoring whilst maintaining focus on the needs and desires of the individual.
Taking care of your appearance, exploring styles and buying clothing should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Our approach is designed to elevate your self confidence by knowing that you’re looking your best, whilst still being able to express your own character and personality.

Our Suits: London – Milan Tailoring
We’re proud of our British heritage and the finer traditions of Savile Row artistry. However, our suits are made in Milan only. This allows us to integrate the subtle differences between classic Savile Row tailoring, and the more contemporary cutting and styling techniques of Italy’s finest tailoring houses . The result is a seamless balance between classic and contemporary design, superior comfort, and performance.
This fusion of British and Italian tailoring construction techniques has a distinctive heritage of its own; It can be traced back as far as 1901, when George V and later Edward VIII became devotees . We have never been afraid to innovate in the pursuit of excellence, using our expertise and tailoring knowledge to embrace the many advances in modern day textile production.
Our close relationships with the world’s leading woollen mills enable us to offer a selection of luxurious British and Italian cloths. While most of our suits and jackets are made in fine quality wools, we also regularly make them in cool Irish linens, sumptuous wool & silk blends, and fine British Tweeds. Rare materials such as Mohair, Cashmere and Vicuna are also available. These are often blended with the best wools in the world to produce luxury cloth with exceptional performance.
