We am committed to bringing you all those traditional uniform items that many would like to wear…but just can’t find these days.

Most of the items we stock are made especially for ‘Albert Prendergast’ and are very difficult to source nowadays. So, if you are looking for; short trousers, knee length socks, caps, boaters, wolf cub & scout wear, gymslips, knickers, etc, then you will find it right here. In fact you will find just about everything not found in the modern school outfitters.
