The month of August marks our birthday! It’s been 18 years since Clothes2order began so as it’s a special occasion, we thought we would take a look back where it all began…

Whilst Clothes2order began trading online in 2002, the business itself was actually established in 2000 by our founder Michael Conway and is part of The Quayside Group. In the beginning, our team comprised of Michael Conway and a team of 10 employees. The C2O office was then located on the third floor of a small building on Lever Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

As business started to pick up, we decided to move our offices and head to Europe’s largest industrial estate – Trafford Park. 2006 marks the year we moved into our first unit on Wheel Forge Way; a much bigger office than the one on Lever Street. Fast forward a few years and we later went on to move into an additional unit in 2010 and a further 2 more units in 2016, completing our Clothes2order HQ where we are based today. We also now have a team of 153 dedicated and hardworking members of staff.

Our logo has also had a few changes along the years. We started off with a red, white and black colour scheme in the early 2000’s and then moved towards our iconic blue colour palate in 2010 with our current logo launching in 2012.

Our logos from over the years

Since we started out as a small business in the Northern Quarter, we’ve produced over 13.5 million customisations and had over 9,000 reviews on Trustpilot. It’s safe to say that we’ve expanded so much as a business and we’re really proud of all that we have achieved and we’re extremley excited for the future. However none of our growth would be possible without you, our lovely customers! So we’d like to say a huge thank you for all of your support. Whether you’ve ordered 1 t-shirt or 10,000 over the past 18 years  – thank you! To show you how much we appreciate your support, we have a special gift for you…
