Our Story

Hi, I’m James Hutchison, the founder and chief stylist for Tasker & Shaw. 

It’s hard to write an “About Us” section for the site because in all reality Tasker & Shaw is all about you, our customers. 

I’ve always loved fashion, dressing up and looking my best, when I was younger it was simple, there were so many options out there that the problem wasn’t finding what I wanted to wear it was too much choice, but as I’ve gotten older, found my own style, that’s changed. 

Even though there are more fashion brands than ever before and that the web has made global brands more accessible than ever, as I’ve gotten older and more discerning, I found it harder to find clothes and accessories with the quality, style, fit and price that I was looking for, so I decided to do something about it. 

Tasker & Shaw is about combining the best elements of menswear, men’s accessories, and lifestyle pieces in one place, either online at taskerandshaw.com or at one of our gentlemen’s emporiums, making it easier to find what you want to wear in one place and with quality and style at the forefront. 

As a qualified male & celebrity stylist, I spend my time making men look and feel their best and that’s what’s at the heart of Tasker and Shaw a desire that everyone who wears an item from us feels their best wearing it. 

We’re not a fashion brand, on purpose. We focus on top quality accessories and men’s timeless wardrobe staples because that’s where the magic really happens, I believe that fashion is only ever borrowed but we own our personal style, that style isn’t copied, downloaded, or dictated, it’s felt. We are here to help our customers feel their style. 

Tasker & Shaw is stylist owned and driven, every item in our emporiums or on the site has been curated for you, ensuring that it adds something to the collection, brings something to the range and gives you, our customer something they want. Whether it’s our Classic polo or our luxury pure silk ties these items are all here for a reason because they are the perfect addition to your wardrobe not for one wear, not for a season but as a wardrobe staple.

We subscribe to the philosophy of “buy less, buy better” where every item you buy is something special, something you’ll wear repeatedly and continue to enjoy because of its quality and timeless style, this is better for the environment as well as your wallet.

Helping men look and feel their best is my passion and I’m always happy to talk to customers so feel free to get in touch.
