A Very Busy Week

This past week has been so action packed, we thought we'd share some of our goings on.

Sir Plus, being the laid back chap that he is, occasionally get's his dates in a muddle. That's exactly what happened this week, when a meeting was scheduled with Nick Wheeler (owner and founder of Charles Tyrwhitt) on the same day as a fair at Mayfield School, down in Kent.

We just about managed to be in two places at onece, and both the meeting and the market went extremely well.

It turns out that the Charles Tyrwhitt empire started in the exact same London based factory that Sir Plus has his boxers made. Nick was very enthusiastic about the concept, loved the name and the branding and might even be able to supply us with off-cuts!

The weekend was spent at a friendly fair in Bedfordshire. We met lots of great folk and cool businesses. One of many is a small company called Rubies in the Rubble, which makes Chutneys out of excess fruit and veg from many of London's wholesale markets. Sir Plus and Ruby would make an excellent team, I feel!

Kind regards,

Sir Plus
