About Us

Oliver Brown is a gentlemen’s and ladies outfitter in the heart of London’s Chelsea, just off Sloane Square. The shop’s namesake was a dog called Oliver who was brown in colour. Thirty years later, Oliver Brown is a destination for traditional and contemporary clothing in a unique and personal environment. Oliver Brown provides for every occasion; from shooting, hunting, fishing and the races, to weddings, city and sunshine.

Many of our cloths are sourced from some of the oldest mills in the North of England and Scotland, and then manufactured into clothing here in England. Bespoke suits and jackets in tweed or worsted wools are an important part of our offering and morning suits or dinner jackets can be hired or bought. In the last few years we are delighted to have introduced a collection of ladieswear.

Oliver Brown is the only retailer invited to trade at the racecourse during Royal Ascot week, and is a proud supporter of the Countryside Alliance. We have also specialised in top hats for many years and today are one of the UK’s notable sellers, offering beautiful, rare originals through to modern makes. Please see our dedicated top hat section for more information.

We hope you enjoy shopping our collections online, and we would be delighted to answer any requests or enquiries, so please do contact us if we can help. We hope to welcome you to the shop next time you are in Chelsea.
