63 Thomas Street, Manchester

Who you need to know Co-owners Steve Sanderson and Nigel Lawson

Brands include APC, Barbour, Guy Cotten, J Shoes, Lee, Ralph Lauren, Stone Island, Vans, Woolrich

Oi Polloi founders Steve Sanderson and Nigel Lawson have created a much-revered menswear indie in Manchester’s city centre, bursting with exclusive brands and interesting collaborations.

Sanderson plays down the success of the store: “We’ve always just done what felt right to us at the time. I guess we’re lucky and people seem to be into it.”

As well as running Oi Polloi and overhauling the website, the owners launched their own brand, Cottonopolis, for autumn 11.
