One of Harrogate's best known shops moves
One of the shops which truly says 'Harrogate' has moved.
Renowned for a sense of style and high quality - and a devotion to the best quality fabrics manufactured in Yorkshire mills - Smithers Menswear has been a popular face in Westminister Arcade up to now.
But owners Shaz and Chris Bradley, who boast more than 40 years' experience in the fashion industry, have taken the decision to relocate to larger premises in a show of confidence and success during this Covid year.
Much-loved for its Tweed jackets and coats and its wool cashmere blend jackets and coats, Smithers Menswear's new address isn't very far away, however.
The shop has moved further up Parliament Street to number 14, next door to Fattorini's jewellers.
Older readers may remember that address was for many years the premises of another long-standing menswear shop, Greenwoods.
With more than 40 years' experience in the fashion industry, Smithers' philosophy is to source its cloths from the local mills of Yorkshire, using Marton Mills of Pool in Wharfedale, Abraham Moon of Guiseley and Alfred Brown of Bramley all situated in the Leeds area.
Its bigger new premises means Smithers can now offer an extended collections, including Meyer trousers and jeans, Fynch-Hatton, Brax, Eterna, Venti shirts, Casa Moda, Slaith knitwear, Trapper, Red Point, Tootal, Robert Charles (Italian leather belts) Dent gloves, Stetson caps and accessories.
