Quality, traditional & quirky menswear, gifts & accessories
James Lear of Arundel would like to welcome you to our first shop located in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. Est 2012.
Inspired by an extended traditional land-working Sussex family over many generations…. The name James Lear of Arundel comes from Harriette’s Grandfather, (Polly’s great grandfather ). James Lear left the family’s ironworks in Toringtong Arundel along with their Ironmongers shop in Arundel high street to open a farm contracting business in nearby Barnham. He took with him a traction engine & threshing machine….. alongside his business he was a skilled cabinet maker & upholsterer, this originally influenced our wish to stock goods made by local artisans with the sense of rural & British tradition. In the past few years we’ve altered our ways in order to stock menswear & accessories due to there being such a demand in the town & generally on the high street.
