Grove & Co was founded in Bristol by two friends, Tristan and Ben. It was born out of a desire to develop timelessly stylish menswear which offered a genuine alternative to mass-market premium brands. The boys wanted to start an unpretentious brand for people who appreciate high quality, unique products - so they started Grove & Co.
Their goal was simple: to make the best shirts you'll ever wear and the last you'll ever own.
They started working with Tristan's sister, Joss, a Birmingham-based pattern maker and designer. Joss and the boys designed, tweaked and exhaustively iterated the Grove shirt for over a year before finalising a simple, sleek and tailored fit, with subtle and understated details.
With a perfected design in the bag, Grove & Co set about building relationships with independent, UK-based fabric merchants, suppliers and manufacturers. Despite higher costs, the boys were passionate about having the shirts hand-made in the UK to ensure that Grove's high standards are maintained at all stages of production and manufacture.
