Frontiers man, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

For Edinburgh’s sartorially savvy shoppers, Frontiers has long been associated with women’s fashion of the highest quality and style, having been founded some 20 years ago by knitwear designer Jane Forbes.

Last year, a new chapter opened for this iconic Edinburgh West End business, when Jane’s partner Nigel Pashley decided to leave his career as a successful commercial property surveyor and join the family business. The result is Frontiers Man, an entirely new shop located on William Street, which brings the Frontiers ethos into menswear, with a carefully selected range of labels, including many that are otherwise tricky to find in Scotland.

Heroes of Richmond, Richmond, United Kingdom

Having worked closely together in menswear for over 10 years, Mario Nisco and Michael Davison (who have over 40 years experience between them), decided to open their first independent menswear store in September 2012 in the beautiful surroundings of Richmond in Surrey.

“Our aim was simple. We wanted a destination store for men that looked and ran on the principles that we personally believed in. A place our wide range of customers would feel comfortable with a personal service that is so lacking in today’s retail sectors”.

The resulting vision is the Heroes of Richmond we know and cherish today.

Alongside their extensive contacts in the industry, together Mario and Michael research their preferred brands through various trade shows at home and abroad, bringing what they consider to be the best pieces with which to represent their independent brand.
