Earl's Apparel Group was founded in 1972. Earl Beard, his wife Billie Jean and a former work colleague Nelda took 3 months redundancy pay and set about making US produced workwear.
Stan Ray, named after the couple's youngest son, Stanley Ray (who is still involved in the family business as head of cutting at the factory in Crockett, texas) is their 1980s brand, featuring hardwearing cotton twills, sateens and outsize logos. Great if you're a painter/decorator and/or running with the cool crowd.
Stan Ray A/W'17 is now available in our Winchester store.
