Highlandwear manufacturer T.J. Matthews is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary. Commercial Director, Matthew Norton, introduces the business as they prepare to exhibit ready to wear tailoring at Make it British Live! 2020.
Could you introduce your business?
In 2020 T.J.Matthews celebrates its 50th Anniversary, successfully supplying own label ready to wear and made to measure highlandwear to tailors and retailers. As part of the Lambton Tailoring Group we are based in Blantyre, South Lanarkshire.
What product or service are you most excited about showing at Make it British Live!
To celebrate our 50th to complement our specialist highlandwear we are launching a Made in Great Britain range of own label made to measure (and short run stock) suits, separates, outerwear and other specialist garments using the comprehensive Lambton order platform.
Who are you looking forward to meeting and connecting with at Make it British Live!
We’re looking forward to meeting retail and tailoring buyers interested in UK manufactured men’s made to measure and short run stock garment programs.
Why do you think it’s important to support made in the UK?
We wish to maintain and develop Britain’s rich heritage and skill in artisanal and technical tailoring. Our established knowledge and ability to make complex MIGB highland garments leaves TJM ideally placed to produce other men’s business, formal and countrywear exploiting the comprehensive pattern library and manufacturing expertise within the group.
T.J. Matthews Ltd will be exhibiting at Make it British Live!
