Designer Tomohiko Banno
Born on June 9, 1980 (43 years old) in Moriyama City, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Having traveled to 20 countries around the world, I developed an interest in the world of tailoring and co-founded the bespoke suit specialty store "DAVID LAYER" with my brother, Akihiro, in 2012. After being featured in numerous famous fashion magazines, I appeared in various media outlets in Japan, including TV, radio, and newspapers. I also served as a lecturer, speaking about dreams, at numerous junior high schools and high schools.
I have made multiple appearances on renowned fashion collection stages in Japan. The concept of "bespoke suits" revolves around creating something that embodies the "ideal self." We craft unconventional suits from a selection of over 15,000 different fabrics. Many celebrities and athletes have been captivated by the allure of these suits.
We receive visits and requests for on-site measurements from customers all over Japan, and we travel nationwide to serve them. We continue to create one-of-a-kind bespoke suits, incorporating unique elements such as traditional Japanese patterns and bicolor designs that are not commonly seen in ready-to-wear products.
