TED BAKER HISTORY
NO ORDINARY DESIGNER LABEL
Having launched as a shirt specialist of some repute in Glasgow, UK, Ted Baker quickly became the place to buy some of the very best contemporary men’s shirting around. From the beginning Ted has had a clear, unswerving focus on quality, attention to detail and a quirky sense of humor. In fact, Ted’s first stores provided a laundry service for every shirt purchased – something that gained the quickly growing brand the title of ‘No Ordinary Designer Label’. Everything produced by Ted Baker bears his unmistakable personality.
Ted weaves quality, ingenuity and mischief into every piece. Mixing retro influences with contemporary flair, his eyewear collections are best described as quirky yet commercial, with a focus on high quality design detailing. Ted’s eyewear is unique, refined and trendy but – like the man himself – never dares to take itself too seriously: one only needs to look closer to discover the undercurrent of humor which runs throughout the collection.
The eyewear collection won the 20/20 – Vision Monday Reader’s Choice Award in 2017 for Best Men’s Frame Brand, in 2018 for best Men’s and Women’s Frame Brand, in 2019 for Best Men’s Frame Brand, and in 2020 for Best Men’s Frame Brand.
TED BAKER FINELY FRAMED
Almost light as a feather, the Ted Baker Finely Framed collection uses high density cellulose acetate, which is 30% lighter than regular cellulose acetate. Weighing only a few grams, they are incredibly comfortable, maintaining the rich colors often found in the Ted Baker brand.
