The Tom Clinch Story


I’ve worn boxer shorts most of my adult life, finding them more comfortable and in middle age much more flattering.

Having bought from the most exclusive brands on the high street, I just could not find what I was looking for; fabulously comfortable cotton, a proper seat and most importantly an inner pouch for comfort, so I designed a pair myself. Having hunted high and low for someone to make them for me, I found a small factory in Twickenham who made up a few sample pieces and Tom Clinch was born.

My partner, Amanda invested in the brand and together we then went on the search to find a factory, that would make up a larger quantity of high quality garments, as we are not interested in mass production. We finally found a wonderful, modern family-run factory that had been in business since 1928 with an ethos that fitted completely with our own.  Already producing clothing for well-known fashion brands, they were happy to support a small  British start up.

Committed in offering our customers an individual service, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile.  We will always personally answer your calls and emails and as we do not use a fulfilment centre,  your order will be hand-wrapped and dispatched by us.

We have deliberately chosen to create a few pivotal pieces that will fit easily into your wardrobe.  Timeless in look, we hope you will enjoy wearing them as much as we have enjoyed designing them.
