We're forever obsessing over beautiful shops and the talented retailers behind them, so imagine our delight when we discovered ourselves among the best of the best in The Shopkeepers 2021 round up.
Sharing the world's best shops, The Shopkeepers celebrates a global collection of unique, creative and inspiring independent shops. Extraordinary retailers from coffee and flower sellers to bookshops and markets, fashion and lifestyle. In their own words, these are the 'stores that delight with discovery and inspire browsing. Shops that we visit when we travel or local ones that we love to return to again and again.'
A huge thank you to The Shopkeepers and their lovely readers for choosing us as one of the Top 10 Menswear Stores in their esteemed selection. Our roots are in menswear – it's how we started, 36 years ago, and we're tickled pink to be included on such a celebrated list.
Founded in 2015 by Paula Flynn as an antidote to the dominance of the major High Street stores and etailers, The Shopkeepers champions the community of independent shops that add character and vitality to our cities, towns and neighbourhoods, providing vibrancy and community to locals and visitors alike.
Every shop on the list tells an individual story, carefully curated to reflect each shopkeeper’s unique character and vision. For everyone who loves the tactile pleasures of shopping and browsing, The Shopkeepers is a celebration of retail. Congratulations to our fellow shopkeeping friends, Bodega, Bode, Tabor, Indigo & Cotton, Broadway & Sons, Cave & Post, City Workshop, Clutch Cafe, and Stock Vintage. We feel very honoured to be in such good company.
