Our History

The Big Mans Shop, (formally G Deakin & Sons) had been owned and run by three generations of the Deakin family - George, Barrie and Howard until it passed into the hands of Paul Deakin, who ran the company for six years. The company commenced trading in 1949 in Redruth, Cornwall.
In 2010 Paul and his wife achieved a lifelong ambition of becoming farmers.
Paul wanted to ensure that the Big Mans Shop business carried on and that the name would still occupy a prominent place within the outsize clothing market. Paul was also determined that the customers who had remained faithful to the Big Mans Shop over the years would continue to receive the service and the quality of product they had come to expect.
Early in 2012, Paul started talking to Nick Cooper. Nick was a Big Mans Shop customer before starting in the big mans clothing industry himself.
Paul decided that Nick was the man to take over the ownership and management of the business and steer it to a new beginning.
A new chapter is about to begin. Paul is now swapping his tailors chalk for wellington boots and his shirt and trousers for a boiler suit.
The Big Mans Shop will continue to be run in the Deakin tradition, with customer service, quality of stock and helpful advice all given top priority.
We are extremely proud to have been given the opportunity to continue running The Big Mans Shop.
