Brick sizes up expansion

MOSS Bros chief executive Brian Brick is a made to measure retailer, always eyeing how his wares can be better presented or the product line tweaked.

Visiting his new three-in-one Moss store, with hire, retail, and specialist bespoke under one roof in Canary Wharf, he breezes around extolling the virtues of a well cut suit and crisp shirt. Having sold his Suits You chain, Brick was targeted by Moss to breathe new life into the business. He told City A.M: “Working for a public company is a different experience and you have to have a long term plan. What we are doing here is aiming for the mid market – we are neither very expensive nor cheap.

“I am personally involved with choosing the product ranges.”

He says that the woes of his competitors, including Suits You, are helping to create a renaissance at Moss. “Things are not easy but we are going in the right direction.

“We will be opening more stores like the one in Canary Wharf.”
