The company was started in 1993 by Alistair Parker-Swift. In the early 1990s he spent the summer months running a windsurfing school in Salcombe in Devon. During the summer of 1993 he created some navy and white rugby shirts, sourcing the materials from a local supplier. Later he sold clothing at Cowes Week on the Isle of Wight, a regatta event, and then opened a store. The first London store opened on the New King’s Road in 1995. As of 2014, the company's chief executive was Louise Barnes and major shareholders included founder Alistair Parker-Swift and private equity group Livingbridge.
