What Do Henleys Have To Offer?
With sales of 8.7 million in 2006 and 38 million in 2009 indicating a growth of 63% – prosperity was almost guaranteed a private limited company established just over a decade ago. In fact, in 2009 Henleys was placed 76th in the Sunday Times Fast Track Top 100 companies.
Founder Ben Luscombe had spent two decades in the clothing business when he launched Henleys in 1996. Officially called Henleys Clothing Limited, it started out making mens shirts before branching out into mens casual wear in the late 1990s and launching a range of ladies clothing in 2002.
Building upon his 20 years in the clothing industry, Luscombe believes that Henleys excels at its ability to create distinctive and imaginative styles, season after season, introducing new trends while offering retailers the opportunity to stock clothes quicker than other fashion producers are able to provide their ranges.
Simon Peters became a partner in the business in 2000 and together Ben and Simon have made the iconic Henleys brand a major player in the global fashion arena, creating inspirational and exciting collections season after season. With 18 of its own stores in towns and cities across the UK and an exciting web presence as well as being on the shelves of many other high street retailers such as Banks and Republic Henleys offer the most distinctive of collections, designed to offer the consumer the ultimate fashion choice.
Henleys has 4 main clothing ranges. The Project Deluxe Collection, using visuals and graphics. The Premium Collection, which has less branding. The more colourful Silver Lions range, and finally the vintage-feel Luxury Sporting Goods collection.
The brand is immensely popular with 18 to 30-year-olds and the disposable income they carry with them in these hard times, and our guide to Henleys reinforces how its individualism and innovation is perfectly placed to succeed in the fashion world.
