LONDON — Whistles, the British high street retailer, is expanding into men’s wear for fall 2014.
“This has always been at the back of our minds,” said chief executive officer Jane Shepherdson. “Whistles was originally called ‘Whistle & Flute,’ cockney rhyming slang for ‘suit’ and, after all the requests we’ve had from customers, press and our retail partners — as well as a lot of market research — we realized that now is the right time for us to break into that market.”
