Whilst keeping pace with developing trends, our philosophy is one of selling enduring style.  Great tailoring, attention to detail and a personal touch are what sets us apart.  Our team look forward to meeting the people of Cambridge - showcasing our unique menswear brand with the launch of the new Spring/Summer clothing and accessory range.”
