Advertisement in Glasgow University Magazine 15 May 1929 for the clothiers Austin Reed's of Regent Street in London.

The first Austin Reed store opened in London's Fenchurch Street in 1900 as a specialist menswear store. The company implemented the latest American methods of retailing with great success and by 1911 it had opened a flagship store on Regent Street, London, dedicated to tailoring, ready-to-wear, and grooming. Austin Reed's opened branches across Britain, including one at Gordon Street in Glasgow, and expanded its range to include women's as well as men's clothing.
