Established in 1837, we are a family run business that takes pride in our past but are committed to our future. We view our relationships with members of staff, customers and suppliers as long-term commitments.

We take time to listen and understand school uniform requirements, designing bespoke solutions for each and every need.

With our online shop, a rapid deployment warehouse in Paddock Wood and a flagship store in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, we are well positioned to supply schools not only across the South East but nationwide.

Our wholesale business exports to schools throughout the UK and internationally across Europe and Africa.
