About Skopes

As an Independent British tailoring brand, Skopes Wholesale are purveyors of fine tailoring and menswear attire, suitable for everyman on every occasion.

Skopes' tailoring has been available from quality independent menswear shops and stores for over 60 years and continues to be at the heart of the business today. The latest collections continue Skopes´ tradition of utilising good quality fabrics superbly tailored with great attention to detail and offer exceptional value.

Stock service is the core of Skopes' wholesale business. The collections include a wide variety of mix & match suits, jackets, blazers, eveningwear and trousers to suit all budgets. Many ranges are also available from stock in sizes for the bigger man, up to 62" chest and 60" waist.

Skopes is introducing its latest high end collection, Sydney Cope. This new premium line suit collection is inspired by the company's founder, Sydney Cope, and the range uses all British woven cloths and superior trimmings across the suits.


The Skopes brand was born in 1948 post war Britain when Sydney Cope established the business in Leeds, Yorkshire; the heart of the textile and tailoring industry in England.  Utilising the latest machining advances of the time, the factory produced the highest quality bespoke trousers using fabrics sourced from Yorkshire’s finest mills. Within a short space of time, the Skopes name became renowned for its use of cavalry twills, corduroy from the village of Hebden Bridge and the finest worsteds from Huddersfield, the heart of the world’s textile production. By maintaining its commitment to high quality, the Skopes brand soared in popularity, leading to Geoffrey Cope, son of the founder Sydney, establishing a ready to wear line of men’s clothing.

The demand from customers for the ready to wear collections meant yet another move to larger premises, for showroom, tailoring services and stock facilities was required and Skopes moved into York Road, providing the business with the facilities, space and potential for Skopes to continue its growth into the quality ready to wear market.

In 1987 the family business moved on a generation when Simon Cope, grandson of founder Sydney Cope, took over the reins and began to lead Skopes toward the 21st century. Simon began to develop into new market areas, supplying casual wear and accessories for a younger audience which was expressing its own style and demands on brands.

Today Skopes is a modern brand with an international reach, offering a mix of contemporary tailoring together with faithful classics that draws on decades of family traditions and British heritage.
