CLOTHING WITH HERITAGE

Yarmouth Stores Ltd has designed and manufactured quality workwear garments to the highest standards in Great Yarmouth, Great Britain for over 100 years.

Occupying the same factory site today and using many of the traditional skills, our garments are still crafted there. We have dedicated a team of 20 machinists and pattern cutters many of whom have been with us for 25 years.  Our youngest recruit is a Fashion design and technology graduate from Manchester Metropolitan University, currently in training as our assistant factory manager.

Our traditional workwear garments, originally designed for practical use in the workplace, are being re-imagined for the 21st century. We are proud to be working with UK suppliers and manufacturers where possible.  Our fabrics are sourced in the UK, mostly from factories in Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Our laundry is ‘local’ and love working with us as it is a change from the bed linen laundry service they offer to the local hotel industry and keeping it local, our potato sack bags we send our packages out in are supplied by the bag man of Cantley, a small family owned business est. in 1972 in a small rural village 10 miles away from our factory. They have a history of supplying agricultural businesses nearby for over 40 years.

This unique blend of traditional British manufacture with the refreshed design is generating interest both in Britain and “throughout the World”.  We have taken care to ensure the garments made today remain true to the original products that have been manufactured for over 100 years.

As custodians of the brand, we treasure the wonderful archive and history of the company.  We have a duty to tell the story well and secure the future of this heritage British brand.  We look forward to sharing this piece of British heritage with you.
