Former England rugby players Fran Cotton and
Steve Smith founded Cotton Traders in 1987.
While their broad shoulders were certainly an
advantage on the pitch, they made buying
everyday clothes a little awkward. So they set out to create quality casuals that get better with age and accommodate all shapes and sizes.
Today, we’re about much more than rugby. Our range for men and women includes everything from perfect pique polos to cosy fleeces, shirts in every pattern imaginable to shoes and jackets that will carry you anywhere, whatever the weather.
We go to great lengths to source skin-kind cotton that’s naturally breathable and comfortable with colours that come in a rainbow of choice, from very vibrant to a little more subtle, all in a huge range of sizes; so whether you’re an XS or 5XL, you’ll find something to suit you.
