About us

Contemporary brands with old fashioned service from a retailer with a rich 40 year heritage.

After looking at alternatives

Our journey began in 1976

Charles founded the business in 1976 in the small market town of Easingwold, North Yorkshire. Back then formal work attire was the order of the day. Charles grew the business to be the largest suit stockist in the north of England. We still sell suits, but times have changed..

Getting into this "internet thing"

1999 - Online sales begin

Way back in 1999 we tested the water by launching a very basic e-commerce site. E-commerce was in its infancy back then and both we, and our customers were finding our feet. It wasn’t until 2010 that the technology, legislation and consumer confidence was really in place.

Broadening our offering

2010 - Womens fashion & more

We realised that we could sell much more than just mens outerwear, so we expanded to offer jeans, shirts, polos, footwear and much more. For the first time we started to offer women’s clothing online.

Excellent service from this company, Barbour Sapper Jacket was ordered on Thursday and delivered the following day. Great price for the jacket as well. Highly recommended
