Stylish men's tailoring brand, Moss, is opening a brand-new store at Gloucester Quays this May 2024.

Leading men's tailoring brand, Moss, is opening its first store in Gloucester at Gloucester Quays on Saturday 4 May 2024.

Providing 1,984 sq ft of versatile menswear, from smart tailoring to casual daywear and accessories, the new Moss store will showcase the brand's new SS24 collection, alongside a collection of all-season styles encompassing workwear, formalwear and black-tie.

There's a team of in-store stylists to help customers find products that suit their own style, with a custom-made tailoring service available as well. Moss will also offer suit rentals for special occasions from £79.95.

CEO of Moss, Brian Brick, said: 'This store is a celebration of everything Moss stands for today; modernity, diversity and accessibility. We’ve leaned into our 173 years of expertise to land our most modern tailoring offer yet, alongside a range of premium casual styles to form a really considered collection.

'We’re not just a suit brand that sells some casualwear or vice versa; Moss has transformed into a competitive menswear destination for both occasions and daily wardrobes, and we’re hugely excited to showcase this to customers in a key corner of the south west.'

Footwear brand, Skechers, is expanding its presence at Gloucester Quays, too, moving into premises 50 per cent larger than its current store in June 2024; with Raging Bull also moving into a new unit. 

Paul Carter, asset director at Peel, which owns Gloucester Quays, added: 'Gloucester Quays continues to be a hotspot for leading retailers, and the commitment of new brands like Moss combined with investment from existing tenants like Skechers, is testament to its sustained appeal as an established, top 10 outlet.

'Responding to consumer demand is of the utmost importance, and maintaining a refreshed, diverse mix of retailers plays a significant role in this, something we’ve championed for 15 years and is no doubt why Gloucester Quays continues to perform. We look forward to welcoming Moss to the outlet, and seeing the continued success of Skechers and Raging Bull.'

The new store openings come after Gloucester Quays announced record sales from April 2023 to March 2024, up 11 per cent, with footfall also up seven per cent in the same time period. 

The centre is also gearing up to celebrate its 15th anniversary in May 2024.
