Crew Clothing was started in 1993 by Alistair Parker-Swift. In the early 1990s he spent the winter months training as a member of the England freestyle ski team in France and the summer months running a windsurfing school on Salcombe high street in Devon. During the summer of 1993 he created some navy and white rugby shirts with the original Crew Clothing 93 patch, sourcing the materials from a local supplier. The rugby shirts were sold in the shop of the windsurfing school and sold out within ten days. Subsequently Alistair decided to turn his attention to sourcing more clothing to sell in Cowes Week on the Isle of Whight, the longest-running regular regatta in the world. He opened a shop in Cowes called Cowes & Salcombe from which customers could browse and buy high quality casualwear. The Crew Clothing brand was born.
Fat Face was founded in 1988 in French ski resort of Meribel by Tim Slade, a former policeman, and business graduate Jules Leaver. The pair bought T-shirts wholesale, had them printed with designs specific to the resort, and sold them to other skiers on the slopes – at first using the proceeds only to fund their own skiing. They spent the following years travelling to different ski resorts, where they continued to produce and sell ski and outdoor-related clothing. In 1993 they opened their first shop, on London’s Fulham Road; they named it “Fat Face” after the Face de Bellevarde slope in Val d’Isere.
