Each piece is hand made by Tom and is a product of extensive research and design, ensuring that no detail is overlooked. In Bielby’s in-house studio located in the historic city of Hull, England, we pay homage to tradition by employing only the finest vintage machinery. This dedication to using time-tested tools reflects our commitment to preserving the art of craftsmanship.

Every garment that leaves the studio is infused with the same care and attention as the original vintage pieces that inspired.


Founder, Tom Bielby, has always had a sharp and keen interest in vintage workwear and militaria. After graduating from a Fashion Design and Technology course at Manchester Met University, he knew he wanted to create something special. Bielby's was born out of that passion, and are proud to carry on the tradition of quality timeless craftsmanship for you to enjoy day by day.

Tom’s favourite vintage piece - The WWII US Navy Gunner Smock.
