The Company began life on 10th December 1931 from a mill in Marton Street in Skipton and for the following 46 years manufactured Single and Double Jersey Knitwear. They have recently installed a goods lift to the first floor of No 10 building, which will enable them to store all of their yarns on site. They have 34,000 square feet of space, which should be adequate for their operation for many years to come.
The history of Henry Poole lies at the heart of the Savile Row suit. It is both a family story and a story of an international business that covers the past, the present and the future. From our historical tailoring bloodline through to our current bespoke process for creating a range of clothing garments (including shirts, blazers, sports jackets, top coats, overcoats, dress wear and, of course, tailored suits), Poole’s epitomises the glory behind Savile Row tradition of pure bespoke tailoring.
