TILLYS story began in Naval Outfitting, from the heart of Portsmouth Harbour.  The business was started in 1800 by Mr G Tilly, who was a professional tailor providing all types of clothing for Royal Navy personnel. Mr Tilly quickly became recognised for his skill in tailoring, diversifying into bespoke garments, hats and gloves..... 


SINCE our long history began, we have diversified into different markets and products, as the craftsmanship was handed down from generation to generation.  Our introduction into the interiors market happened in the late 1970’s and the natural progression of fabrics led the way into soft furnishings and window treatment, which is where we stand today.  One thing that has never changed, however, is our bespoke approach: we have always been made-to-measure.
