Shining a light on Suffolk fashion brands
In addition to music, literature, and art, Suffolk also has a storied history when it comes to fashion. From country to coastal trends – not to mention the county’s rich equestrian connections – Suffolk has always known how to dress well. With this in mind, it’s hardly surprising that there’s always been a good case for shopping for a new wardrobe in Suffolk, especially if you’re staying at one of our Barns or Barges to rent.
Though it’s certainly possible to shop for tweed jackets, flat caps and tailored suits when holidaying in Suffolk, a host of more contemporary brands and boutiques make sure you’re not limited to the classics when it comes to buying and browsing. To get you inspired, we’ve rounded up a collection of Suffolk fashion brands to check out.
My Best Friend’s Wardrobe
Established by friends Sian and Francesca, My Best Friend’s Wardrobe brings together a range of timeless women’s pieces that cater for every occasion. Characterised by their superior quality and eye-catching designs, their flagship store in Thurston makes for an essential visit when shopping in Suffolk. With boutique clothing without the boutique price tag, it’s not hard to recommend this Suffolk fashion brand.
Based in the floral town of Bury St Edmunds, menswear specialists Gerald Boughton bring together a fantastic range of formal and casualwear. Whether you’re in the market for a tailored suit or something a little more laid back, you won’t go wrong popping in for a visit when visiting the town. Not afraid to push a few boundaries, Gerald Boughton also stocks a variety of clothing inspired by rock n’ roll iconography.
Boldly (and quite rightly) defining itself as “the home of divine clobber”, Darcy B has been treating shoppers to designer womenswear in nearby Woodbridge for over twenty years. From staples to accessories and homeware, you won’t go wrong paying Denise and the team a visit when enjoying a holiday in Suffolk.
A relative newcomer to the fashion scene, Beeline Clothing was established in Suffolk as recently as 2022. Defined as being on a “mission to create fashionable garments that are designed with the planet in mind”, the brand stocks ethically sourced t-shirts and caps that enable you to pick up some sustainable threads without compromising an inch when it comes to style.

Designing from her studio just down the road from our Barns for rent in Woodbridge, Emily Mortimer has created a jewellery brand that has earned the attention of royalty and the A list. Thanks to her growing profile, shopping for Emily Mortimer jewellery is now something you’ll have to do via the authorised stockists listed on her website – something you may perhaps enjoy whilst spending some time in the hot tub?
