Introducing… Grants 1856


Starting life off as a milliners and haberdashers then later a WW1 ration shop and a butchers it may seem a tad unusual to be introducing a shop with nearly 160 years of heritage behind it. But this particular incarnation of Grant family ventures only started life last year amidst the racks and rails of Berlin best trade shows where shop owner Paul Grant decided on which menswear brands to stock before finally opening the immaculately painted doors of the shop earlier this year.

Just like all the very best independent shops they’ve gone for quality over quantity with twenty well balanced brands being stocked each bringing something different to the table and combining to reflect Paul’s own unique style. In this tasteful new/old shop you’ll find some are some of our perennial favourites including Norse Projects, Universal Works, Uniformes Generale, Sandqvist, Edwin, Folk, Sebago, Saucony, Tuk-Tuk, YMC and La Paz with Our Legacy and Clarks originals coming along next season too.


Much as we love buying clothes online (which you can do from Grants btw) it’s genuinely exciting to hear about a proper ‘bricks and mortar’ shop opening up, especially when it’s in the North and by the seaside. So top marks to Paul and his well-attired staff for bringing some much needed sartorial style to the area and here’s to the next 160 years of the Grants and their well chosen wares! Oh and they have very kindly given us a 15% discount to Proper readers, just enter PROPER15 at the check out, good eh?
