Why has King Fox of Cowbridge built up such an enviable reputation and client list is clear to see. Owner Leila Thornton has a keen eye for stocking the right brands. She has the smart casual look nailed and can dress men from head to toe. Here, she tells us what’s on offer this spring/summer.
What brands do you currently stock?
Orlebar Brown, Sunspel, Stetson, Magee 1866, MAC Jeans, Giordano, Eden Park, Santinelli Tailoring, Olymp, Bruhl, Pantherella, Falke and more.
Who are your customers?
I want everyone to feel comfortable coming into my shop. I’ve never liked shops that make you feel intimidated as you walk in. I try to greet everyone who walks through my door with a smile and I’m always honest when giving an opinion. I love nothing more than my customers telling me how many compliments they had when wearing something from me and like to hear how good they felt. I rarely buy more than two or three of a certain print. as I try to be mindful that you don’t want several others wearing the same thing as you.
What are you excited about for this season?
Colour! I love this season because we say goodbye to navy, burgundy and grey and hello to this year’s main focus of florals, fun prints, checks and vibrant colours.
What do you think will be your best sellers?
MAC Jeans are still my best sellers. Strong legs? No problem! They do jeans in different leg widths and I challenge you to find a comfier pair than their jog ‘n’ jeans or flex fabrics with extra stretch.
Orlebar Brown is always popular in the summer with their fabulous shorts and polos. Giordano, as always has some great prints this season. I’ve also introduced Olymp’s new premium range, Signature.
If you have a wedding, party or BBQ to go to this summer, come see me.
