A COUNTY Durham tailor has finally opened his first menswear and boutique, Walton and Sutherland, following a successful number of years offering a travelling tailoring service.

Walton and Sutherland opened their new modern-contemporary boutique, in a new and exciting location, Ushaw Historic House and Gardens, Durham on Tuesday, December 29, following three unsuccessful attempts from March 2020 onwards.

Mr Smith, owner of Walton and Sutherland, recognised the importance of continuing the company's Durham heritage, which is so personal to the brands image, while in keeping with its stylish take on menswear.

The boutique's new concept offers an exclusive by-appointment-only experience, which enables guests to browse the latest collections and enjoy a personal service for their made-to-measure experience.

The boutique, which has been unable to open due to the on-going pandemic, has under gone many months of design, investment and help from friends and family.
