New Gloucester HQ for bespoke shirtmaker

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - New Gloucester HQ for bespoke shirtmakerBespoke shirtmaker Emma Willis is moving in to a new HQ in the centre of Gloucester in a deal brokered by retail property specialists Bruton Knowles.

The Jermyn Street shirtmaker will be taking over a stylish period building at Bearland House in the city.
Julian Capewell, Associate at Bruton Knowles, Gloucester, acted for landlord Prestige Properties in letting the 4,300sq ft building.

He said: “I was particularly pleased to secure this letting to Emma Willis as we also brokered her move to Central Cross in Gloucester three years ago.

“It is fantastic to see a local business develop like this and I am certain that Emma Willis will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Emma Willis launched her business in 1987 opened her first shop in Jermyn Street in 1999 and opened her factory in the centre of Gloucester in 2010.

The firm makes luxury men's shirts, boxer shorts, swimming trunks, dressing gowns, pyjamas and shooting socks in its work room in the centre of Gloucester, selling online or in the Jermyn Street, London shop.

Julian Capewell added: “Bearland House in Longsmith Street, Gloucester  offers an ideal blend of period style mixed in with large, light rooms in which seamstresses can create these sought after and high quality garments.

“This is a welcome addition to this area   as it keeps employment within the city centre and enables these lovely buildings to be brought back into full use.” 

18th century  Bearland House, with its impressive ornamental facade, forecourt, iron railings and gates,  is a frequent destination for  public tours as part of Heritage Open Days.
