Brand Profile

Established over 34 years ago, Peter Gribby is a family business offering stylish, versatile menswear with rural British roots and a European flavour. The company was started by Peter Gribby, after a retail apprenticeship that encompassed London, Paris and Italy and has grown into an international business with loyal customers across Europe and beyond.

 

The Peter Gribby brand began with quality knitwear and has developed into a versatile range of coordinated knitwear, jerseys and shirts. Combining quality and heritage, our collections use clean lines and a vibrant colour palette to create our striking signature look. Our continued success and growth over the last quarter of a century is due to our commitment to the principle of offering first-class quality at the right price.

History

We set up the company in 1985; my father Peter, my Mother and I. Our family home in Scarrington, Nottinghamshire formed our base and we all pitched in: my Sister did the admin; my Brother and I packed orders at night. It all started when my Father and I took eight jumpers each and headed north on the motorway, him to the east, me to the west. We came back armed with orders and bursting with pride.

 

The Peter Gribby brand was born on fertile ground: Nottinghamshire's early prosperity was forged in the textile industry, and Nottingham lace remains famous worldwide. We mined that historical expertise to produce clothing steeped in quality and heritage.

 

It wasn't long before the house was awash with knitwear, frequently forcing me to make do with the sofa when the night fell as my own bed was piled high. As independent retailers increasingly clamoured for our lines, it was clear no family members' bed was safe, so we decamped to larger premises and have steadily expanded ever since.
