TAISCE is an independent menswear clothing company, located in the market town of Woodbridge on the Suffolk coast. Launched in 2018, Taisce has created a unique collection of predominantly British-made garments including outerwear, denim, knitwear, handmade footwear and luxury staples. Our Autumn-Winter 2018 season draws on the rich tradition of coastline trades and crafts–from life along the Deben River to the fishing communities of the Aran Islands, the collection has been created with a love and appreciation for lives lived in harmony with the sea. Drawing on colours and materials used for centuries within UK coastal communities, we have given classic garments a contemporary edge–from wool, linen and silk in the rich blues and greens of the sea and marshlands, cashmere and loden in the ochres and rust hues of sea-grasses and sands, to the delicate grey and rich umber of earth and stone. Our outerwear includes classic and contemporary tweeds, woven with teflon to protect from both sea-spray and rain. Our leather footwear is hand-made by one of the country's most respected manufacturers, who have produced the finest shoes made entirely in England since 1896.
Tom Leeper is the Creative Director for TAISCE and is also Menswear Fashion Director for Wylde; the international Bi-Annual fashion magazine. He has also previously contributed to many major editorial publications including Ponystep, Wonderland, Marie Claire France and 1883.
Tom has also been instrumental in developing campaigns for international brands, as well as in-house and personal styling for many British and Global brands. With a strong background in creative collaboration he has a unique ability to unite and shape talents at the cutting edge of their field; establishing connections between designers, photographers brand and editorials.
Having grown up in Suffolk, Tom brings an appreciation for the local landscape and the natural world to his style and designs. TAISCE was created out of his passion for beautiful clothing–made ethically to impeccable standards, with an appreciation for both tradition and innovation.
Our outerwear is manufactured in the UK using traditional and specialised methods, by a dedicated team of skilled artisans. Each garment is individually hand cut and made from the finest natural fibres woven in the British Isles. Every item incorporates a waterproof and breathable membrane interliner for additional warmth and protection. Most are Teflon coated, and either water-resistant or entirely waterproof. Each style is both practical for country pursuits and elegantly designed for city living.
Taisce outerwear includes field jackets, military-inspired coats, loden towncoats, pea-coats, and tweeds. Each style can be ordered to bespoke specifications; if you would prefer a specific design in a different fabric, colour or length we can order to your specifications within 2 weeks. Ladies coats or individual fits can also be accomodated. Most materials are woven with teflon to make them water-resistant; others are entirely waterproof.
Made in Italy to the highest standard, our trousers can be tailored to your required length. Made with exquisite materials, impeccable tailoring, and a timeless aesthetic. Fittings may be required to determine your specific measurements.
Handcrafted leather footwear manufactured by one of the country’s leading suppliers to our own unique specifications. Designed for comfort, durability, elegance, and versatility– from the country coastline to city streets.
