Why we opened The General Store

We reach lots of people though our online stores, from folk around the corner to as far away as Australia and Japan, but we don’t always get to speak to you.

We therefore always wanted to open a showroom too, a place where people can come and talk to us about the product, the history, the zips and finer details – if they want to. This is where the concept of The General Store came from.

Our customers aren’t one ‘type’; you could know your kit and be in to the history of a garment, or you could just appreciate a well-made item of clothing, or you love the thrill of a vintage find.

We wanted to create a store where you could come along for a try-on, a chat and a cup of tea if you fancy.

The vast majority of our product is menswear, but we do have some unisex product. 

Billie, our cockerpoo is often here. You’re welcome to bring your dog to the shop too, there’ll always be some treats waiting :-)
