Hield Brothers was established in 1922 in the British hub for worsted wools. The company was founded by entrepreneurs David and Hugh Hield under the name Hield Brothers in West Yorkshire as a manufacturer of the finest quality English cloth. Based in Huddersfield, the company has over its illustrious history gained a worldwide reputation and global standing as a symbol of perpetual British quality. The company has twice been awarded the prestigious Queen's Award for Export.

Producing both fabric for apparel and furnishing, the next step was to move into the realm of retail. Setting up shop on London’s Savile Row in 2004, Hield began to create made to measure suits for clients alongside a line of ready to wear.
