Cotton Traders

CottonTraders was founded in 1987 by two former England rugby captains, Fran Cotton and Steve Smith. During their heyday, 
playing in Bill Beaumont’s Grand Slam winning side of 1980, broad shoulders were an on-pitch advantage, but made
buying everyday clothes a little awkward. So together, they set out to create
quality casuals to fit all shapes and sizes, with a quality that only gets
better with age.
Now into their fifth decade of friendship and Cotton Traders’ fourth decade in business, the company is about much more than rugby, although the 
commitment the guys showed on the pitch is evident in our pursuit of excellence and the incredible quality, style
and value of our casuals, from our famous piques to our hard wearing rugby
shirts, and the old classics to our contemporary women’s collections.
