Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster's T for Tall - Ted Baker Collection


When Ted Met Mark Foster

It was while travelling through French Polynesia that Ted was astonished to witness one of Britain’s most successful all-time swimmers, Mark Foster, making waves in the sparkling cobalt blue waters off Bora-Bora.

Unsurprisingly, the two gents hit it off instantly and, while the fashion icon was quick to nickname the dapper 6”6 legend ‘Manu’ (after the island’s goliath of a volcano, Mt. Otemanu), Ted soon found that having a head for heights isn’t always a walk in the park.

Listening to Manu’s tall tales of squeezing into planes and trains (and, worse, having to settle for sartorial half measures), Ted rose to the challenge to create a swimmingly stylish and uncompromising range of clothing and footwear for all the tall people.
