Crew Clothing is an amazing journey for Alastair Parker-Swift, who had been running a thriving windsurfing school in the summer down in Salcombe in Devon. In the winter, he was in France as part of the England freestyle ski team.
The windsurfing business was run from a small shop in Salcombe. Alastair saw an opportunity. He sourced some navy & white rugger shirts and, using a local supplier, he created the original 83 patch rugby shirt. Stock sold out within days. And after 10 days trading in Salcombe, Alastair made the decision to find premises in Cowes in start for the famous Cowes week. And he succeeded - the shop did open, sales exceeding all expecations and so the Crew Clothing Co brand was born. Alastair gave up his place in the ski team to focus on Crew Clothing and today, the business has over 400 staff.
Crew Clothing is all about British Casual Luxury wear, with blazers, jackets, coats, polo shirts, rugby shirts, shirts and hoodies, shorts, tops and t-shirts, trousers and chinos and more.
And what's more, they have a clearance sale at the moment with up to 60% off some items. Don't miss it! It's a great way to pick up some bargains.
I've got several items of clothing from Crew, including their bamboo socks which I have to say are very comfortable indeed plus I think they're fun! They were a present, and I do love wearing them!
