Our Story

In 1854, Alexandra was established in Bristol as a linen drapery and rapidly grew into a thriving department store. Throughout the twentieth century, the business developed a market-leading range of stock-backed workwear and uniforms, heavily marketed through catalogs and retail shops, and eventually became a PLC. By the end of the 1990s, Alexandra had become the largest single provider of workwear, corporate uniforms and nursing wear in the UK. In 2010, Alexandra was acquired by The Men’s Wearhouse, Inc.

Alexandra invests in developing digital solutions to improve the customer experience at every touchpoint. Our core strategies of accelerating product lifecycles and continually updating classic styles remain our focus today. By leveraging existing reach and distribution to service core sectors, Alexandra continues to build a substantial position in the UK, while also expanding further into targeted International markets.
