When looking for quality brands it can sometimes be a little to easy to forget about the great independent brands and retailers that are available around the country. One in particular we feel deserves its moment in the spotlight is Northern Threads, a forward thinking independent menswear brand in the north east of England. They spotted a gap in the market and the first store was opened up in South Shields back in 2006. The ethos though up by the projects owners Nigel Binnie and Phil Goodfellow was a simple one, providing an extensive range of designer clothing brands and pairing that with unrivaled customer service. It may seem simple but this is an ethos many of the bigger name brands and retailers seem to have forgotten in recent years.
7 years on and the company is progressing and becoming something of a fashion go to place for style conscious gents. Now available in two stores, the brand has also moved into the world of online shopping so that their brand is available on an even bigger scale. Northern Threads has had such a positive impact upon the independent menswear retailers scene that it has been acknowledged twice by Draper’s magazine when they placed the business in the Top Inspiring Independents list.
This is a brand that always aims to do things a little differently, and their approach to business isn’t just about making money. They have a clear focus and respect for the consumer and they show this by stocking quality brands at realistic prices. Customer service is something they take very seriously as they feel this is the true foundation for any successful business venture. They stock brands they feel passionate about, and they don’t follow suit when it comes to the brands other retailers stock. They stock brands they actually like and know their customer base will also enjoy too. They also support emerging brands they also take fresh looks on classic garments from new and emerging designer menswear labels.
Their range of brands and labels is always growing and some of their brands include: Adidas Originals, G-Star, Lyle & Scott, Armani Jeans and many more throughout the year.
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.
