A Hume has been dressing country gentlemen in the Scottish Borders for over 90 years, offering only the highest-quality country clothes. Today our range of A Hume clothing comes in both men’s and ladies’ styles, with something to suit every country taste. You’ll discover locally woven tweed caps exclusively designed for A Hume, as well as soft cashmere caps in a wide choice of colours. We also stock traditional tweed jackets and hand-crafted belts.
A Hume was founded in 1929 by Arch Hume in Kelso, in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Over 90 years later, we remain a family-owned brand. Today, Archie Hume, grandson of Arch Hume, and his wife Karen own the business. Originally a gentlemen’s tailors and made-to-measure outfitters, we are now an award-winning multi-channel retailer offering the best brands in country clothing, footwear and accessories.
A few things have changed since our story began in 1929. We now have two Kelso stores, an e-commerce website that reaches over 70,000 customers worldwide, and have picked up several awards along the way – including the winner of Drapers Best Independent Multi-Channel Operator and the Drapers Independent Retailer of the Year awards. Other things remain unchanged. We still offer a bespoke made-to-measure service, and quality is everything to us.
Our approach is simple: to offer country wear of the highest quality with the very best customer service, based on 90 years’ experience.
To achieve this, we source outstanding country brands from around the world, blending immaculate craftsmanship, creative design, and quality materials to bring you an unbeatable collection of clothing, accessories and footwear for ladies and gentlemen. Consistency, passion and commitment are at the centre of our business. A Hume was founded on the value of attention to detail and quality tailoring. We never lose sight of our roots and even offer our exclusive range of tweeds, inspired by the beautiful Scottish Borders countryside and made in the world-class Lovat textile mill in Hawick.
We believe in clothes that last, that wear well, that last longer than a season. By stocking the world’s finest country brands, we give you the tools to find comfort and style every day, no matter what country life throws at you. This is the A Hume way of life.
