A long-established menswear specialist in Kent and East Sussex

We've been serving our stylish customers for over 40 years now.

Let's take a look at how it all started...

County Clothes was founded in 1976 by Robert Midlane and Bryan Weller. At the time, Bryan was a manager of a men’s clothing store in Canterbury and Robert was his regular customer.

Impressed by the quality of personal service he always received from Bryan, Robert proposed that the two of them go into business together and open their own store. 

Robert owned a retail building on St. Margarets Street in Canterbury, which is where the original store still stands to this day and where it’s been serving its customers for over 40 years. 

During this time, County Clothes has built up a loyal following of customers, building on the strong ethics of outstanding personal service and fine quality merchandise.

history of our shop

A lot has happened since then – we have opened our doors in Tenterden, Reigate, Sevenoaks and Bexhill-on-sea – but one thing remains unchanged; we continue to pride ourselves on offering our customers the highest standards of personal service. 

We stock fine quality clothing in a wide range of sizes, including long fittings for the taller man and many garments measuring up to a 52” chest. 

From classic and modern suits, sports jackets and wax jackets, to stylish knitwear, shirts and accessories, and traditional English shoes, our range of menswear is handpicked to offer a superb choice of classic brands and contemporary styles. All of our sales staff have an expert knowledge of the clothes and accessories I our collection, and will be happy to assist you.
