Founder Ben Luscombe had spent two decades in the clothing business when he launched Henleys in 1996. Today it is a well-known urban clothing brand, making a range of men’s and women’s clothes from sportswear to the higher-end Premium Collection. It sells through high-street retailers such as Bank and Republic, as well as 14 of its own stores from Bristol to Glasgow. Last year the company launched a website, which will soon sell footwear and jewellery as well as clothes. Henleys’ sales grew 63% a year from £8.7m in 2006 to £38m in 2009.
