Who you need to know Owner Paul Monks

Aged just 23 when he established Purple Menswear four years ago, today Paul Monks presides over
a thriving business.

In fact, the menswear indie just added a second floor, such was the level of demand.

“It was a goal we had set at the beginning of 2012, and to have achieved our aim and to get such a positive response from our clientele has been highly rewarding,” he says.

The store has also diversified its offer and launched a new tailoring service, which will be Monk’s main focus for 2013.
