Reiss is a UK-based fashion brand owned and run by founder, David Reiss.[1] The brand produces men's and women's clothing. It has 65 stores, located primarily in the UK, but with stores in the USA, Ireland, UAE, China, Malaysia, and more recently Canada.[2]

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.[3] The brand was named Fashion Retailer of the Year in 2003 at the British Style Awards.[4]

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.[5] The brand has been one of the few British retailers to crack the American market after opening in New York's Greenwich Village.[6] Other stores are located in Multrees Walk in Edinburgh, another in Marina Mall, Abu Dhabi.
