The History of Wathen Gardiner

The foundations of the company were laid back in 1806 by Mr Gardiner, who by 1830 had built up a thriving business exporting ready made clothing to the West Indies, packed in Puncheons (rum barrels) which were then returned to this country filled with Jamaica rum. In 1860 his descendant was joined by Sir Charles Wathen, a wool merchant with a fearsome reputation for quality. On his wool-buying visits to Australia Sir Charles would, in turn, sell his Bristol made garments which were highly prized and in great demand.

We maintain their very high standards of quality -as we hope you will discover for yourself.
