Former England rugby players Fran Cotton and Steve Smith founded Cotton Traders in 1987. While their broad shoulders were certainly an advantage on the pitch, they made buying everyday clothes a little awkward. So they set out to create quality casuals that get better with age and accommodate all shapes and sizes.
Today, Cotton Traders are about much more than rugby. The Cotton Traders range for men and women includes everything from perfect pique polos to cosy fleeces, shirts in every pattern imaginable to shoes and jackets that will carry you anywhere, whatever the weather.
Cotton Traders go to great lengths to source skin-kind cotton that’s naturally breathable and comfortable with colours that come in a rainbow of choice, from very vibrant to a little more subtle, all in a huge range of sizes; so whether you’re an XS or 5XL, you’ll find something to suit you.
After receiving lots of requests from British Expats who missed being able to buy Cotton Traders clothing and footwear, Cotton Traders started delivery to Australia in 2014. Cotton Traders received a phenomenal response and launched their Australian website in 2015.
Cotton Traders employs in excess of over 1000 staff, delivers to 40 countries around the world and has an annual turnover in excess of £85 million.
