Ex official manufacturer and supplier to Great Britain, Welsh, Northern Irish, Scottish and English national sports teams I moved into semi retirement in mid 2013. Whilst I have "left" the full commercial world I have retained an active interest in specialist embroidery design, production and sales. Additionally, whilst stocks last (my UK manufacturer has retired), I have maintained my own "Pure Gold" leisure clothing range. All my "Pure Gold" brand garments are made in the UK. and focus around a range of Polo Shirts and Sweatshirts.

In late 1999 I entered into the garment embroidery arena in order to meet the high demand for embroidery, primarily on polo/"T" shirts and sweatshirts. In 2006 I added embroidery digitisation (conversion of logo's to machine commands for embroidery) to my skill set. Specialist/themed embroidery design and production, is the "passion" of my semi retirement working life. All embroidery is completed “in-house”. Whilst not limited my major embroidery design interest, as a member of the Richard III Society is in relation to Richard III and is positive in relation to him and his memory.

My core business is based on private/club/social customers. I fully understand the demands and needs of clubs, society's and personal buyers. I pride myself on genuinely caring for all my customers, no matter what size,. I also operate a NO MINIMUM ORDER policy, and have an ability to cater for those individuals and organisations who bigger suppliers turn away as being “not worth bothering with”. I only hold a small quantity of pre embroidered garments as the wide size, colour and embroidery range I offer makes stockholding of the complete option range impractical. Embroidered garments will be produced specifically for your order, targeted for despatch to you within a 3 to 7 day days of receipt of your order. Later this year I shall be launching an internet shop, with payment being possible by "Paypal". However in the short term my products and services are available 24/7 via the traditional face to face/postal/telephone order options based on this small catalogue.

Whilst this catalogue is dedicated to Richard III and my Pure Gold “own brand” product range I have also included Branded Cotton Pique Polo Shirts, together with a small range of limited stock “Special Offer” items that I believe offer exceptional value and/or exceptional quality that fit in to the Richard III focus of this catalogue. 

Happy shopping!
