Ernest W. Baker

Established in 2017 by designers Reid Baker and Ines Amorim, of the United States and PortugalReid was born in Detroit and grew up in rural Park City, Utah, while Ines was born and raised in Viana Do Castelo, Portugal. The designers heritage plays an important role in developing their collections as they blend their cultural influences between European elegance and an American rawness.

Ernest W. Baker, Reid’s Grandfather, and an early Detroit ad man, serves as a muse for the brand’s identity. With a sense of nostalgia, an intention is made to reinterpret classic garments that feel as if they were taken from Ernest’s closet.

With a precise consideration for garment construction, sourcing high quality materials, and combining an in-depth knowledge of the tailoring process, the designers propose collections composed of timeless garments with a contemporary vision.

After releasing only their second collection, the label was shortlisted for the 2018 edition LVMH prizeErnest W. Baker’s international stockists include 10 Corso Como, Antonioli, Galeries Lafayette, SSENSE and United Arrows.
