Who you need to know Co-owners Julian and Rhona Blades

Premium menswear and womenswear indie Jules B has come a long way from its one-store origins in Jesmond in 1985 to today’s nine-store chain, slickly operated from its Newcastle headquarters.

So how has it become one of the nation’s favourite indies? Co-owner Julian Rhodes pays tribute to those around him. “We’ve got a great team spirit and excellent staff,” he says, adding that every one of his stores has a real buzz.

This husband-and-wife duo have also recently viewed properties with a view to opening another store.
