The business was originally founded in 1989 by Sue Stedman who was driven by the goal of providing companies with access to smart, bespoke uniforms that reflect their values and give their staff confidence when dealing with the public.
Now headed up by Teresa Stedman, the main objectives of the business remain relatively unchanged: to provide a highly personable service, offering clients choice and quality, at realistic prices - and delivered on time and on budget.
In over two decades the company has worked across a huge range of industry sectors, designing business workwear for clients including Persimmon Homes, National Portrait Gallery, TTT Moneycorp, Titan Travel, Puig Cosmetics and L'Oreal UK Luxury Products Division to name just a few.
Based just outside Guildford, Surrey, with our warehousing, stock management and distribution centre based in Reading, we operate on a national basis by providing a complete range of bespoke corporate wear design services, in addition to a comprehensive ready-to-wear tailored collection, for those seeking an off-the-peg solution.
Teresa Stedman was appointed to managing director of the business in January 2011, having been operating as commercial director since 2007, and as business development manager between 2000 and 2007. Prior to joining the company, Teresa held a number of management, buyer and merchandising roles in the fashion retail environment with BHS Marylebone, Principles and House of Fraser.
