Garmology S00 E27: A Highland thing – With John Sugden of Campbell’s of Beauly

My guest today is John Sugden of Campbell’s of Beauly, a traditional highland tailor and accessories shop outside Inverness with a continuous history going back to 1858. We get into his background in the garment industry, the place of traditional tailoring and fabrics in modern times, how workers on the Highland estates still use unique tweeds for their workwear, doing ethical business in times of fast fashion, the role of profit margins, Royal Warrants and in general running a business far from the madding crowd.

Campbell’s of Beauly is @campbellsofbeauly on Instagram and on the web.

And remember, while you can listen to the episode right here on the webpage (all episodes on the Garmology page), the podcast is also available on all the usual podcast sites, like Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcasts etc. This is very handy for listening via your phone while walking the dog, driving, cooking, or whatever activity you do where you want to listen to people talk about stuff.

    Du måste komma över traumat med Dr Martens! Dom var inte snygga ens när jag var postpunk på 80-talet.

      Dr Martens er et jättebra eksempel, lik dem eller ej 🤗
