About Peppers Menswear & Ladieswear

Welcome to the Peppers website. You have done well to find us actually as this site is quite new. But our business is anything but.

Founded in the 1950s by the McMitchell family and then run by the Dewhursts in the 1970s, my father David Pepper, having worked in the clothing industry since leaving school, bought the business in 1981. Since then the business has evolved a lot, from one serving essentially the rural community around us here in South Shropshire, to one that now has customers returning to visit us from all over the country.

I joined my father in 1997 and together we expanded the business and it slowly shed its traditional tailors and outfitters image complete with old hat boxes and wooden drawers to reflect the demands and expectations of the modern-day shopper.

And then in 2010 we extended the business to include a ladieswear department that my wife Laure runs, adding her own particular French touch!

I hope you enjoy your shopping experience at Peppers.
