James Lear of Arundel would like to welcome you to our shop located in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. Est 2012.
Inspired by an extended traditional land-working Sussex family over many generations, the name James Lear of Arundel comes from Harriette’s Grandfather (Polly’s great grandfather). James Lear left the family’s ironworks in Torrington Arundel along with their Ironmongers shop in Arundel high street to open a farm contracting business in nearby Barnham. He took with him a traction engine & threshing machine; alongside his business he was a skilled cabinet maker & upholsterer. This originally influenced our wish to stock goods made by local artisans with the sense of rural & British tradition.
Over the past few years we’ve altered our ways in order to meet demand and we now focus on stocking menswear, accessories & giftware; all personally selected by us.
We are passionate about providing a quality & alternative shopping experience to our customers. We are especially proud to offer personal shopping appointments, specifically for wedding parties; where our "grooms to be" can pick out their own unique outfits for their special day. We are thrilled to stock a wide range of clothing for such occasions. In order to book, please send us a message to or phone us on 01453835941. If you are unable to come into the shop we are more then happy to email you photos or outfit ideas where possible. Do take a look at our Instagram account to see previous wedding outfits we've put together:
