TM Lewin relaunches e-commerce and announces new stores
Heritage shirt retailer TM Lewin has relaunched its e-commerce site six weeks after being bought out of administration, announcing that stores in key locations will shortly follow.
The website is currently offering the its spring/summer range and has announced that new lines are to be added in the next few weeks.
The shirt maker closed down its website in late March following its second fall into administration in two years. The brand was rescued by Petra Group, its main lender, in April.
The business had only 50 staff when it fell into administration for the second time, and as part of its rescue deal only 22 staff transferred over to the new owner.
The British formal shirt and tailoring brand was founded in 1898 and has gained popularity as a premium fashion choice for city workers, but has suffered losses as home working during the pandemic became more common.
In mid-April TM Lewin employees won a £439,000 legal battle against the business after an employment tribunal ruled that the retailer had failed to give staff the legally required 30-day redundancy consultation period.
