Timothy Foxx was founded in 2009 by clothing designer Rosalie Eustace, who at 25 decided to apply her vision and talent to a new business in beautiful, hand made tweed garments. We specialise in being designers and makers of Exceptionally Eccentric Tweed Clothing.
A Little Shop History
It began when Rosalie was gifted a sewing machine for her 16th birthday (how many other youngsters ask for that?!) and her passion for making clothing grew as she kitted out friends while studying design at Loughborough University. The popular Aimee skirt was one of these early creations!
“I started with an old tweed jacket which I ‘borrowed’ from my father’s wardrobe. Cheekily, I cut it up and created my first tweed mini skirt where I added a touch of vibrant silk colour and funky lining. The problem was that suddenly all my friends wanted to borrow it.”
“It spent so much time on loan I hardly ever got to wear it myself, so made another one. So I started creating bespoke tweed skirts for my friends, and the rest of the story is pretty obvious! Fortunately my father never missed his jacket, though I’ve since made sure it’s been replaced with a lovingly made Timothy Foxx original.”
Who is Mr. Foxx?
The name Timothy Foxx comes from an antique toy from Rosalie’s childhood. The wooden horse has always been called Timothy (although no one in the Eustace family can quite remember why). He is a much loved mascot who always takes centre stage in our show stands.
How We Do It
Rosalie’s designs inject flare, individuality and style into each garment produced and she has an eye for beautiful colour combinations. You can see this in the stunning Tweed fabrics she designs - here at Timothy Foxx we are all about colour.
Testament to our love of Scottish tweed and the skills used to produce such a wonderful fabric, the clothes are entirely designed in the UK. We are very proud of the quality of our products, and think our designs celebrate all that is great about British rural style.
By taking the concept of mismatching beautiful tweeds, and combining them with other fabrics and patterns such as corduroy, silks and cottons, Timothy Foxx has been the essence of ‘vintage modern chic’ since we started.
These days we focus on elegance and clever design features so no matter what shape you are you feel amazing. The range of products has now been expanded to appeal to customers of all ages; Stunning Men's tweed jackets, waistcoats and accessories, funky tweed hotpants and mini skirts for the teens and sophisticated jackets and knee length skirts for ladies who are after a suits to wear at the races. We cater to all ages.

We love what we do
We are now in our 9th year in business and Timothy Foxx Clothing has grown from strength to strength. We have just moved in to a new TFHQ where we now have the space to have a show room where customers can book an appointment for a personal shopping experience.
We really enjoy meeting our customers at the shows we attend, and don’t be surprised to receive a flattering comment and have your photo taken to be featured on our website if you are wearing your Timothy Foxx gear. If you’re passing, be sure to pop in and say hello to the team and of course to Timothy!
