About Us

Our History

James Meade Limited started out life in 1982 as a shirt specialist offering customers the very best tailored shirts at affordable prices. During the 90's the business expanded into ladies and gentlemen's tailoring maintaining the excellent quality standards that had marked its historic success. In 2003 the founder, James Meade himself, retired and the company now belongs to WCF Ltd, a private company located in Cumbria specialising in small "family run" mail order businesses. So with a wide range of clothing offering superb value I'm confident you'll find something to suit you. But don't take my word for it - browse our website and see for yourself.
