Inside Arnold & Co. – Sheffield’s Newest Barbershop and Menswear Store
Opening at 474 Ecclesall Road earlier this month, Arnold & Co. have set up a one-stop men’s store where you can get a fresh trim, various grooming services, a brand new outfit – and enjoy a beer while you’re at it!
Downstairs their heritage barbershop will take bookings – and walk-ins, if you don’t mind waiting a bit longer – for hair cuts, beard trims, full traditional wet shaves, facial waxing, and any other aspect of barbering you could think of.
Head barber Adam Mir told Exposed: “Alex and his business partner approached me about setting up an all-encompassing men’s store back in November – a laid-back, friendly place where you could get yourself completely sorted for the weekend in the space of a few hours. I’ve been in the trade for 15 years and a load of customers from Taylor Taylor where I used to work have followed me across, so business is good and we’re looking at getting a third barber in now.”
Brothers Alex and Adam Mir have joined forces to open Arnold & Co. on Ecclesall Road
Stroll upstairs and you’ll meet Alex Mir in the menswear store, stocked with a wide variety of carefully selected artisan brands from old classics such as John Smedley and Nigel Cabourn to Japanese denim pioneers such as Big John and Stevenson Overall Co. and many more in-between. Also on offer is Forge Denim, a Sheffield clothing brand created by Alex and Richard Mappin with a focus on ethically-sourced, well-made garments built to last.
“We’re not about disposable fashion; we encourage people to buy a bit less but buy quality – it’s better for the environment and simply looks better,” Alex told Exposed. “We hand-pick our brands and the stuff we sell will last for decades. Providing the utmost in terms of value is hugely important to us. The idea here is people can come in with one outfit or look and leave with a completely fresh one – brand new clothes and a fresh haircut to match.”
