One of the oldest shops in Redditch, Heaphys Menswear was established in 1831 during the reign of William IV and has built its reputation on providing the best menswear service in the area.
Heaphys is such an established part of Redditch, that Ann Bradford’s book, “Old Redditch Voices” documents us as one of the oldest shops in the town. Bradford outlines our beginnings as a smaller tailors shop 200 years ago, making woollen under garments, cotton shirts and shifts, right through to our on-going success today.
Since Heaphy’s inception in 1831 family has, and continues to be, an essential element in the DNA of the business and informs every aspect of its ethos.
That underpinning of family and tradition is still evident today with Dean’s wife Natalie playing an active and often pivotal role in the everyday decisions inherent in running a successful tailoring company.
Even the irrepressible Corrigan children, Oscar Jake and Megan, weekends allowing, play a small but vital role in upholding the Heaphy tradition.
As a high-street business, Heaphy’s has been no stranger to the difficulties that face even the most recognised names in retail and it has been the willingness of Dean and Natalie to adapt the business that has seen it thrive in recent years.
With the large chain stores concentrating on mass-production, mediocrity when it comes to suits, Heaphy’s stands proudly for a bygone era of people above profit and the time-worn adage of quality over quantity.
