LONDON — Is there space in the crowded market for one more British heritage brand revival? Jamey Hargreaves, whose family founded the mass market British clothing retailer Matalan, thinks so.
Hargreaves’ men’s wear brand Wolsey, which was founded in 1755, isn’t playing in the luxury space like Burberry or Pringle. Instead, it aims to appeal to the premium high-street shopper, offering a full range of apparel and accessories, with a focus on outerwear and knitwear.
