Founded in 1905
Halon Menswear was founded in 1905 in Manchester. The Shrewsbury branch opened in 1951 making it the oldest trading retailer on the High Street in Shrewsbury today.
Behind the 1950's facade lies an Aladdin's cave of traditional gentlemens clothing, ranging from suits and jackets, to shirts and accessories. Despite the closure of the original Manchester shop in 2004, the Shrewsbury shop continues to buck the trend going from strength to strength with many loyal customers in Shropshire and beyond continuing to visit in order to purchase items which are no longer available elsewhere.
All our staff are traditionally trained so are able to advise on the fabric, care and fit of everything we stock. In recent years Halon Menswear was voted Shrewsbury's favourite medium to large shop, with an emphasis on providing high levels of customer service. As a traditional gentlemen's outfitters we are also very proud of our fitting service and alteration service, ensuring our customers are always completely satisfied with the fit of their garments.
We tend to have in stock over 900 suits and 800 jackets ensuring a huge variety, along with shirts, trousers, outerwear and underwear. Many top brands can be found including Brook Tavenor, Peter England, Viyella, Wellington, Gabicci and Jockey to name but a few.
Obviously for a lot of our customers, their main reason for visiting Shrewsbury is to purchase their menswear from our traditional gentlemen's clothing range, at prices which are hard to find elsewhere in the rest of UK!
However there are (apparently!) other reasons, including the world's oldest flower show, shrewsburyflowershow.org.uk, held in the beautiful town park the Quarry. However the 2020/21 Flower Show has had to be cancelled due to the Covid 19 outbreak.
With a multitude of fantastic independent businesses, along with some of the more well known outlets, plus some really great restaurants and cafes, you would be hard pushed not to have a great day out in our county town of Shrewsbury.
Of course, a visit to our Gentlemen's Outfitters is most definitely a must do, on your "wish list"
Hope to see you soon.
