Spotting a gap in the market for a forward thinking independent menswear store in the North East of England; Northern Threads was opened up in South Shields back in September 2006. The thinking behind the project for owners Nigel Binnie and Phil Goodfellow was very simple – provide an impressive list of designer clothing brands coupled with unrivalled customer service.
7 years down the line and the company has grown into a two store outfit plus an online venture – with second store Edit Clothing opening around the corner in 2010. This has led to an extension of the brand profile and the ability to cater to a wider market both locally in the stores and internationally online.
Northern Threads’ positive impact upon the independent menswear retailer’s scene in the UK has twice been recognised by Drapers Magazine when they placed the company in the Top Inspiring Independents list.
The company continues to look for new ways to grow and improve, so there’s never been a better time to support your local independent, while being safe in the knowledge that you’re buying from experts with years of experience in the field. Choose Northern Threads and Edit Clothing – in-store or online.
Phil and Nigel.
