Over 200 years of Bespoke Tailoring


Our shop, situated in the heart of Historic Edinburgh, has changed little over the years - 'Like Stepping Back in Time', our knowledgeable and friendly staff assist our customers and advise when asked, leading to a pleasant shopping experience.



The history of this long established family business can be traced back to 1792 when John Christie traded in what is now called the 'New Town' as a tailor, breeches and livery maker.

The tradition continues to this day with skilled tailors still making clothes on the premises providing City and Country suits, Legal and Academic wear and, of course, Traditional Highland Dress, including our famous Tartan Evening Trousers.



Our Ready Made department specialises in Quality Traditional Suits and Blazers with an extensive range of Scottish Tweed Jackets, Suits, Plus Two's and Four's.  The waterproof Shooting Coat in your own selected tweeds is ideal for our Scottish climate.  Even a genuine Tweed Inverness Cape to add a touch of style.

Smaller items still kept in this traditional outfitters include stiff collars and studs, separate Dress Shirts with Wing Collars, sized Dress Bow Ties, pure Cotton City and Country Shirts, Arm Bands and even Sock Suspenders.  A good selection of hats, caps, deerstalkers and tweed baseball caps help protect you from the Scottish elements.
