Interested in getting to know a little more about our business and the face behind the brand? Shirtdetective recently interviewed our MD Jeffrey Doltis, and this is what he had to say…
Shirtdetective [SD]: Can you give us a brief history of the company?
Jeffrey Doltis [JD]: We started making suits in 1938, but our factory was bombed in the Second World War. We moved production to Northern Ireland and were making suits in the 1950s. We started making shirts in the late 1950s
SD: You offer both bespoke and ready-to-wear. What are the benefits and downsides of that?
JD: The benefit is that we can use all the experience we have gained in bespoke and apply it to the ready-to-wear market. We do regular customer research to understand these issues and we don’t see any downsides.
There is a clear distinction in the business. We only sell the bespoke clothing from the shop in Savile Row. We only sell the ready-to-wear clothing online.
