Closing time for Meech's Menswear

A sad sight - a few photos I took in Meech's Menswear in Weymouth, shortly before this splendid shop closed its doors for good at the end of January 2018.

This traditional gentleman’s outfitters first opened in 1928. The shop’s owner, David Meech - son of the original owner John Henry Meech - is retiring.

They can still be found selling online at www.meechs.co.uk, www.farahtrousers.co.uk and www.menswear-warehouse.co.uk
