Philosophy.

When most people think about the staples of the modern man’s wardrobe, they think of suits, ties and exceptional footwear. Here at Baker & Monk, we believe the simple things deserve the same level of sophistication.

The man who takes pride in his work knows that no detail is too small to be overlooked. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to give more creative options to the men’s essentials that often get neglected in the marketplace. And we don’t want to simply give you more options, we want to give you the high quality options that you’ve come to expect. We’re here for the man who’s bold enough to step out in style.

Origin.

Legendary jazz musicians Chet Baker and Thelonious Monk didn’t have style—they defined it. To them, every single note was as important as the song as a whole. Baker, a James Dean lookalike and self-taught trumpet player, lived by his own rules. Monk, known for eye-catching accessories from sunglasses to hats, created his own brand of bebop that continues to influence musicians across genres.

Baker and Monk are as admired for their innovation as Swedish design is for its understated elegance and premium quality. Based in Sweden and long-time jazz fans, we were inspired by attention to detail and uncompromising craftsmanship. It is our goal to deliver excellence—no matter how small the package.
