Cotton Traders was founded in 1987 by two former England rugby captains, Fran Cotton and Steve Smith. 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, though the commitment that was shown on the pitch can still be seen in the incredible quality, style and value of our casuals. Our range for men and women includes everything from old favourites like our famous piques and rugby styles, to classic shapes and casual styles suitable for all occasions.
Our clothes are made to be lived in and loved
for a long time and you can be sure that we'll
never settle for second best. We go to great
lengths to source skin-kind cotton that's naturally breathable and comfortable, with a rainbow of colours and a huge range of sizes to choose from - so whether you're an XS or 5XL, you'll find something to suit you.

Not only that but, once you’ve chosen what you like, you can place your order in three easy ways: online, over the phone or by post. Shopping with Cotton Traders has never been easier.
That's enough about us, now it's over to you. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
