Welcome to Assembly

Based on a cobbled hill in the market town of Frome, I strive to showcase honest, quality clothing with a known provenance. If you pop in on a quiet, midweek afternoon you may even catch me making the odd piece on my vintage sewing machine.

I offer a hand-picked selection of British garments, traditional grooming products and interesting objects with a few continental classics thrown in for good measure.

Introducing HICK.

A collection designed and inspired by the workwear once worn by each of my Grandfathers – one, a factory worker from the Midlands, the other, a shed-dweller from North Yorkshire.

My paternal Grandfather, George, was already retired when I was a boy and I would spend my summers with him and Grandma . We would take trips out in the old van he had converted into a camper, with the most amazing folding plywood roof light. We would eat homemade cakes and drink tea from enamel mugs.

I remember he had two distinct looks; a navy boiler suit with sheepskin gilet over the top, or a grey suit and white button down shirt on a Sunday. After he had showered, shaved and had a bath he would come down for Sunday lunch smelling of fresh crisp cologne with slicked Brylcreamed hair and a sharp moustache.

A simple, effective wardrobe – HICK reflects his ideas and draws directly on these memories. 

Buy now for a made to order piece or contact me for more information. The first batch of Hastings Jackets in Royal Blue coming soon.
