Dalziel Menswear is one of the largest stockists of king-size menswear in the southeast and has been open for business in Woking, Surrey, since the 1930's. Having passed from father to son to grandson, the business is now run by Bruce McLaren.

Family History

The building housing the business was originally bought in 1921 by Walter McLaren (Snr) trading as a general clothing shop with also household goods such as towels and bedding. A large element of customers ran budget accounts with a home collection service. When re-decorating recently, we found some hand written leather bound ledgers from this era of the business. It was amazing to realise that some of these families are still doing business with us. For that, we are very grateful.

In 1953 the business went through another generation with Walter (Jnr) joining. The senior Mclaren died in 1975 and 1979 saw the next generation join, in Bruce.

Over the years the business evolved and bigger sizes were stocked more and more, 1998 saw the decision to leave the home credit market and concentrate on the outsize market with Walter taking a well earned retirement.

This year, 2018, the business has again evolved. The premises and the running stock have been downsized and we have moved to offering a more personal service. As customers visit us when an item is needed, wanted or by referral; the decision was made to offer an appointments service. Customers are still welcome to drop in, you will still find a warm welcome and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you are looking for something specific or making a special trip to visit us we recommend calling ahead to avoid disappointment.
