TRESPASS: OUR STORY

Trespass is one of the UK’s most successful outdoor clothing retailers. We currently have a large number of stores across the UK and in mainland Europe as well as a network of wholesale clients across the world and a thriving e-commerce website. Scroll down and read our story and see how our history has helped make us the international brand we are today.

1938: Jacobs & Turner Ltd.

Our company was first established in 1938 in Glasgow, Scotland. At the time, we had just 12 machinists, a 1200 sqft warehouse, and we provided uniforms and other items of clothing to large organisations, including the local police. As our success grew, we started to manufacture a new product that would come to shape the future of our business. That product was anoraks and other waterproof jackets.


1977: We move into a new 10,000 sqft home

As our business grew, so did our surroundings. We moved from our small warehouse to a new location on Glasgow’s Argyle Street. We had more than 10,000 sqft of office and warehouse space, from which we continued to design and manufacture outdoor clothing.
