John Michael Ingram drew on his extensive experience in the womenswear industry to anticipate the explosion in the menswear market, establishing a highly influential chain of shops. His first shop opened in the Kings Road in 1960, catering for men in their twenties who wanted to look 'individual, but not out of place'. Ingram aimed to design a complete, colour co-ordinated, yet casual look for his customers.

He later went on to design clothes for TV personalities, including Patrick McGoohan of the cult science fiction series 'The Prisoner'.
