FIRST ‘SHOOTING STAR’ OF 2016 ANNOUNCED! Date: 10/02/2016

Owen Scott Bespoke Tailors is the first 2016 winner of Huddersfield Town’s ‘Shooting Star’ award, run in association with Lucas Lee & Partners.

The past 12 months in particular have been phenomenal for the business with its flagship store located in Huddersfield, the home of cloth, as well as sister sites located in Leeds and in Scabal’s famous store on Savile Row, London. After six years building a strong reputation in Huddersfield and a well-established customer base, Owen Scott has grown to offer ‘The Gentleman’s Barber’ of haircuts and wet shaves, which is proving to be quite a hit. Owen Scott now has a wider array of in-house, off the peg suits using the finest local cloths. The firm is now competing with the likes of Reiss and other designer labels for the ready-made suit market both in store and online. The suits are constructed in a bespoke method with padded lapels and working cuffs to mention a few quality touches, which is unheard off in the ready-made market and something the designer labels cannot touch. Scott Hufton, owner of Owen Scott, said:

“I am honoured to be the first business of the year to be recognised with a ‘Shooting Star’ award.

“We have some major plans for the coming year to establish our unique brand ever further.

“I’d like to thank Sean and John from Huddersfield Town and Lucas Lee & Partners for their brilliant support as always.
Chris Lee, Managing Director at Lucas Lee & Partners, added:

“Having caught a quirky shop out of the corner of my eye selling shoes not usually found in Huddersfield, I’ve watched Owen Scott grow over the last five years it’s a real pleasure to present Scott with the first ‘Shooting Star’ award of 2016.

“The last five years have been tough for retailers and if Owen Scott can succeed in that market, it can do it in any market.

“I look forward to seeing this unique and innovative business go from strength to strength.”
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:

“I’ve mentioned before that this award marks the achievements of the businesses in Huddersfield and surrounding areas that are making a difference and Owen Scott certainly fits that criteria.

The business is ambitious and successful and the growth and vision for 2016 is impressive.

“Well done to Scott and his team; we look forward to seeing Owen Scott develop further this year.”
