Mens Wear and Wedding Hire
Tissimans was established in 1601 as a tailor, draper and undertaker, in the historic building opposite St. Michael's Church in Bishop's Stortford.
Being amongst the oldest standing businesses in the world, tissimans was originally founded by "Slaters" in 1601. It is hard to tell when the name changed to Tissimans but the earliest evidence of tissimans was in the late 1800's in an old ledger book. To date Tissimans has claim to being the oldest mens clothing establishment in the world.
Part of the premises dates from about 1360, with modern additions around 1545. The shop still has lots of traditional features whilst surrounded by top quality modern and classic garments.
To add to its history, Tissimans has even provided liveries, the fitting of entire staff with tailor made uniforms, to Sandringham House and Windsor Castle.
