Their recently updated website offers shopping at your finger tips when it’s most convenient to you from brands such as Eden Park, Canterbury, Farah, Skopes, Rael Brook and many more. Without doubt, the big success story is Eden Park – from small beginnings they’ve grown into one of the UK’s major suppliers of the rugby inspired fashion house.
Eden Park Designer Menswear is the brain child of former France Rugby International Frank Mesnel. As you would expect he’s a dapper dresser, showing the same panache as he did playing for his country.
Founded in 1987, Eden Park’s named after the stadium in New Zealand where, that year, France lost the first rugby union World Cup final. The pink bowtie logo harks back to Mesnel’s days in the backline at Racing Club de Paris, known as “Le Showbizz” for their high-profile stunts – drinking champagne at half-time, taking to the field in fancy dress, wearing pink bow-ties for big matches.
Initially the idea was to use the bow-tie logo to brand champagne, but on his rugby travels, he had seen many people wearing rugby jerseys for leisure purposes, something fairly unknown in France. So, knowing all about rugby jerseys, he and his colleagues realised they had hit upon what they wanted to do with their new bow-tied fame.
Now, having supplied clothing to the French national team, the ERFU, the WRU and the British Lions among many others Eden Park has expanded into other parts of the globe and into other leisure clothing and accessories areas.
At their South Wales based store, Oxford House is one of only a handful of Official Eden Park Stockists in the whole of Wales. With a comprehensive range of Men’s Eden Park products including Smart Casual Shirts, Polo Shirts, Knitwear, Jerseys and Jackets all available in store or on line in sizes Medium to 5XL, it’s the place to go for this great label.
