May Newsletter May 16 2019
We are now coming up to one of our busiest times of the year, with another Bank Holiday approaching and hopefully with some warmer weather on the way.
June will see our buying team start selecting pieces for SS20 and we will keep you up to date with the trends and brands for that season on this site and social media platforms.
This season has seen the successful reintroduction of Ben Sherman, with their top tier 'Archive Collection'. It is important for us as with some other Independents, to have a point of difference from the multiples away from the mass market with more discerning collections. This philosophy will be increased going forward.
Colours & Sons is a new collection for us which will be landing in August. This is related to our best selling shirt brand, Fynch Hatton, but is much more niche and vibrant with unique designs. They do not 'ordinary', so we hope you will like what they have to offer, which will be exclusive to our store in Norwich.
Levi's® continues to be out top denim performer, but sadly due to contractual reasons, this cannot be bought on this platform. However, their sister brand Dockers® is available here and has exceeded our expectations, with their four way stretch chino. A much expanded version of the collection will be available from June.
Brutus have suspended their operation, which is a great shame to us as it was our best selling brand online, particularly in North & South America. Their owner is pursuing other business interests, but if things change with a new collection, you will be the first to know. Original Penguin has been dropped.
We would also like to remind customers that we will no longer be opening on Sundays in December. Changing shopping habits with consumers migrating to online - as with other retailers - means it is no longer patronised to a financially viable level. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please keep an eye out for new AW19 items from our brand partners in the coming weeks, which will be a mixture of lighter pieces for the summer and more layered pieces.
We sincerely thank you again for your continued support.
