Mark Ferguson, creator, Wil Valor
At 6’5 (195cm) Mark Ferguson’s appearance doesn’t go
unnoticed when he walks into a room. In a younger life
his height served him well as a basketball player with the
Townsville Crocodiles but when he couldn’t find anything
stylish to fit him, he turned to creating it himself. Now,
almost a decade later, and as the designer of his own fashion
collection available exclusively at his bespoke menswear
studio in Milton, Ferguson is always meticulously groomed
and most often seen in a suit during the business day. He
describes his style as classic with a twist – which could be
something as simple, but distinctive, as the addition of one
of his personal collection of bow ties. Ferguson takes the
attention in his stride and hopes his label inspires other men
to have the confidence to express their own style. When one
of his clients walks into a room Ferguson wants people to
be asking “who’s that guy”.
Mark Ferguson wears burgundy Italian silk and wool suit,
Italian cotton shirt, silk knit tie and satin pocket square all
from theWil Valor collection; G&L handmade shoes.
