Our Story

simon middleton blackshore british coastal clothing

Blackshore is the definitive casual menswear collection for discerning gentlemen who love the coastline of the British Isles. Established in 2017, we use only premium quality fabrics that are designed to last and we make every piece in our collection in British factories.

 

 

It all started down on the harbour of the coastal Suffolk town I call home. Named after the its muddy tidal banks and black-tarred fishermen’s huts, it is known as ‘The Blackshore’.

It was whilst roaming there, watching fishermen at work on the quayside and gulls squabbling over scraps, that my friend Andy and I created the blueprint for our premium coastal menswear company.

Taking inspiration from the fishermen and boat builders for whom the Blackshore is a lifeblood, and from our own adventures along the coastline of Suffolk and Norfolk, we’ve created the definitive British coastal clothing brand for men who seek premium, British-made, casual clothing of timeless style.

Defined by a traditional workwear aesthetic, the rich history and unique character of the UK’s coastline are reflected in every element of the Blackshore collection, and we’re proud to say that each piece sits comfortably on discerning men of any age.

Supporting the resurgence of British manufacturing, our entire collection is designed and made in Britain. We source premium quality cloth (wherever possible from British mills) and we manufacture exclusively in British factories. 

Our social consciousness extends across all aspects of the business: guiding everything from our commitment to fully recyclable, FSC approved packaging that is also made in Britain, to our support for coastal charities across the UK through which we can give back to the people who live and work on our shores.

We truly believe that our clothing is timeless, not transient, and to illustrate this we offer a lifetime visible repair guarantee so that you can be confident your favourite pieces will last season after season.

Much like their namesake, your Blackshore favourites will stand the test of time.
