Manchester’s rich textile history is evident in the city’s architecture, street names, and folklore. But there are also clear signs in what people wear. Our hometown has some of the UK’s best dressed residents, and this is thanks in no small part to the number of exceptional boutique retailers peddling garments of the highest order. Introducing Doherty Evans & Stott, a custom-made tailoring and curated menswear shopping experience run by owners Andrew & Matthew.

“We’re committed to craftsmanship, real materials and knowledgeable personal service. The whole store is geared towards offering the highest quality we can. Whether that’s crafting a suit from Loro Piana cashmere for you or via our seasonal drops.  One of our Italian partners is called Slowear, which really says it – we’re the opposite of fast fashion! ” the team proudly explain, citing close working relationships with some of the most sought after makers in the business, forged over 14 years of trading. Incotex trousers and chinos, Fedeli & Zanone knitwear, belts from Anderson’s, Caruso’s legendary tailoring — so many of Italy’s finest in one place. Meanwhile, those searching for homegrown styles can find an abundance of UK specialists here, too. 

This is one of very few stockists of Drake’s, for example — among the most exciting names on Savile Row right now, while the likes of Crockett & Jones also occupy shelf space. Due to the nature of what Doherty Evans & Stott does, they promote the ‘in real life’ experience , urging customers to visit the historic HQ on Bridge Street, previously home to the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Richard Creme, to touch, feel, and try for themselves. A range of accessories, designed in house, are also available to buy, produced in a 200-year-old silk mill, adding to the sense of heritage. Services including simplified wedding fittings, guided by experts, are offered with a lead time of 8 weeks. However for those unable to make it down in person, their website showcases everything the store has to offer.
