Cordings has been an iconic part of London's landscape since 1839.
The values that have carried Cordings from 1839 to today are still as important as then: quality, service and an adherence to brilliantly British style.
In 1939, at the age of 35, John Charles Cording opened his first shop in The Strand as an outfitter and waterproofer. Cordings quickly became synonymous with outdoor living and was an inportant shop for city gentlemen to call at before venturing into the countryside.
In 1922, the young Price of Wales adopted Cordings as one of his outfitters. Cordings have made riding boots for the Queen Mother, the Duke of Windsor and Mrs Simpson.
Perhaps the most iconic item in the collection is the Covert Coat. It was invented by Cordings (there's an early version in the Victoria and Albert Museum), and remains a cornerstone of the mens collection.
