Luxury menswear retailer LUKE 1977, which is known for its contemporary fashion twists on menswear is the latest high street fashion brand to set its sights on The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham, taking space next door to the forth-coming Urban Outfitters.
The menswear brand, which has two core lines Luke Sport and Luke the Technical Tailor will be a welcome addition to the High Street bringing its premium, cool, masculine designs for the gents of Cheltenham. The brand’s clothing has been worn by some of Britain’s most famous male fashionistas including Rio Ferdinand, Gareth Bale, Will Mellor and Stormzy.
Taking a 3,000sq ft unit, the new opening will create eight new jobs for fashion forward gents with a passion for menswear.
