75 Years of Skopes

It’s been 75 years since life for Skopes began. In 1948 our founder, Sydney Cope, set up shop in Leeds. From the get-go, Sydney sought out fabric from Yorkshire’s finest mills to create bespoke trousers that got people talking. Soon the Skopes name became renowned for its cavalry twills, Hebden Bridge corduroy, and for sourcing the finest worsted yarns from Huddersfield. 

As our brand’s popularity soared, so our ready-to-wear line of men’s clothing was born. The business continued to grow and has stayed in the family as the decades have rolled on. Sydney’s son, Geoffrey, took the reins during much of the 1970s and 80s. Since then, Sydney’s grandson, Simon Cope, has been at the helm.

Nowadays, Skopes’ suits are tailored to satisfy the demands of an ever more discerning audience, with a broad collection of dapper looks for any occasion. Our roots are still steadfastly in Yorkshire though. Some things will never change.

So, here’s to 75 years of looking dapper!
