Northern Threads was founded in September 2006 by Nigel Binnie and Phil Goodfellow. Both have been in designer retail for over 20 years. Seeing a gap in the market for a forward thinking menswear independent store in the North East, they chose South Shields for the location of their store. Northern Threads was introduced to provide the best in labels and customer service, and now having been open for over 4 years the store has an impressive brand profile and is continuing to introduce new labels of interest and quality each season.
After the major success of their flagship store (Northern Threads) they decided to open a second store (Edit.Clothing) to cope with the increasing demands. By doing so they are now able to stock a vast range of both casual and premium men’s designer clothing brands and can now target all ages, whether it be the fashion conscious male or trend seeking teenager.
At Northern Threads we understand that the fashion world changes a lot throughout the year and so we pride ourselves on offering new and exciting menswear throughout the year – as fashion evolves and trends emerge. We’re good at keeping the website as up-to-date with the fashion as possible and in doing so it enables you find the freshest items on the men’ fashion scene all under one roof.
We offer the finest designer clothing from the world’s hottest designer labels at excellent price points throughout the year - enabling you to be prepared for each season well in advance.
We’re particularly excited about our new assortment of designer menswear which features fresh takes on classic garments, trend setting shoes and astonishing new accessory lines. Anticipate mind blowing items, new labels (including some old favourites of ours) and expect a few surprises throughout our latest collection too.
