Luxury Men's Clothing Since 1909

Robert Old is a longstanding family-owned business, steeped in tradition and values passed down by the original Mr. R H Old over a century ago. Today, we remain dedicated to offering the highest quality in men's clothing, tailoring, and accessories.

Our elegant menswear store, located in Bournemouth, Dorset, spans three floors and warmly welcomes sartorially minded gentlemen from around the world. Here, they can count on finding impeccably stylish, well-crafted attire complemented by the finest British service.

In response to our customers' requests, we've expanded our reach with an exclusive selection of garments and accessories available for purchase on our online store. Robert Old online mirrors the exceptional personalised customer service and expertise found in our physical store, featuring a carefully curated range of iconic designer brands and our own label collections.

Our online boutique embodies the belief that it's the attention to detail that truly defines modern menswear. Here, modern gentlemen can revel in luxurious, versatile, and quality garments that enhance their style.

From the timeless elegance of Belvest to the multifunctional designs of Moorer outerwear and the unique charm of Eton of Sweden's shirts, each item is thoughtfully handpicked to uphold our tradition of quality products and service.


Experienced Gentlemen's Outfitters

The year 1909 marked a series of significant milestones: Louis Bleriot's historic Channel crossing, Sir Ernest Shackleton's South Pole discovery, and the establishment of Robert Old's elegant tailor's studio in Bournemouth, Dorset.

In the very first year of its existence, Mr. Robert Old clinched first place at the prestigious National Tailor & Cutter competition. His exceptional talent and sartorial flair attracted customers from near and far, rapidly transforming the modest tailor's studio into the distinguished menswear establishment we know today.

The store expanded over the years. In 1997, we introduced an elegant top floor dedicated to fine men's tailoring and our made-to-measure services for suits, jackets, shirts, and trousers. The lower ground floor catered to our younger clientele who appreciated brands like Gant, Timberland, and Polo Ralph Lauren.

Today, our store proudly showcases three floors of the highest quality menswear, from sophisticated suits to refined footwear and everything in between. Visitors to our store are consistently impressed by the vast selection of garments and the undeniable quality of each piece.

Cashmere has always held a special place in our hearts at Robert Old, and we take pride in hosting one of the world's largest collections of styles and colours. Our Scottish-made cashmere selection includes timeless classics such as cardigans, roll necks, V-necks, crews, polo shirts, and scarves, as well as contemporary options.

In December 2006, we embraced the opportunity to expand our business internationally by offering carefully selected garments online. Our website featured expertly crafted items from Robert Old's own label, along with renowned international brands like Eton and Crockett & Jones.

This online expansion was warmly received by stylish gentlemen worldwide. We listened to their feedback and enhanced our website to make it even more user-friendly, while also expanding our range of garments and accessories.


Whether you visit us in-store or online, we take immense pleasure in delivering a unique and personalised service. We continue to offer world-class tailoring services for made-to-measure suits, including options from Belvest and our own label Italian handcrafted suits and jackets. After all, Robert Old holds itself to the highest standards.
