Reiss (/ˈrs/) is a UK-based fashion brand and retail store chain owned and run by the founder, David Reiss.[1] The brand produces men's and women's clothing. It has 160 stores in 15 countries.[2]

Reiss was founded in 1971, and its first store in London's Bishopsgate sold men's suits. It did not move into women's clothes until 2000.[3]

The Reiss flagship store and headquarters in London, designed by Squire and Partners, has won several awards including the RIBA Award, the BCO Award and the Civic Trust Award.[4] The brand was named Fashion Retailer of the Year in 2003 at the British Style Awards.[5]

Reiss has seen a significant increase in the number of its stores, including key stores in Heathrow Terminal 5 and Westfield London, to almost 100 outlets worldwide, and Reiss intends to eventually grow to 250 stores worldwide.[6] The brand has opened in New York's Greenwich Village.[7]

In April 2016, a majority stake was sold to the American private equity firm Warburg Pincus for £230 million.[8]
