Established in 1928, W E Cole is a family owned business now entering its 3rd generation. Originally started by William Edgar Cole as tailors and outfitters, with Mr Cole being a "cutter of distinction" making suits from which the old leather order book read like a Who's Who, when local farmers, bank managers, and head teachers would aspire to be seen in a Cole's 3 piece suit.

During the war when cloth was rationed, uniforms were the order of the day. Officers, especially North Weald Aerodrome pilots, were constantly calling in with more stripes for their sleeves.

To date the business has moved into menswear and offers a wide range of top quality clothing, from leading British and European suppliers.

The Epping branch is a 200 year old listed building formally used as a school and doctors home, but has been the home of Cole's since the early 1930's. Although times and trends change year after year they still provide a traditional service along with modern clothing making Coles a unique shopping experience.

Cole's knowledge also extends to their hire department for both wedding and evening functions. Friendly staff are always on hand to give professional and individual advice for any special occasion.

Cole's stock top quality suits from Europe’s major suppliers. They offer fabrics for all occasions and dinner wear to business wear with top brands including Mario Barutti, Magee, Label, and Scott.
