Meet the Team




Managing Director

Dave is Managing Director and the proud third generation of his family to be involved at Hellewells.  Originally starting as the ‘Saturday Boy’ in the 1970s he is now responsible for all aspects of the business

A vastly experienced tailor, Clarke joined Hellewells in 2003 from another menswear shop. With 25 years’ experience in men’s tailoring and made to measure fitting, he has made contract suits for Lancashire Constabulary, Bamber Bridge FC and BAE, to name just a few. As a season ticket holder at Preston North End, it was a particularly huge honour for Clarke to make the suit for Preston legend Sir Tom Finney when he was awarded his knighthood in 1998.

Janice joined the team at Hellewells in 2003 after previously working at a specialist shoe shop in Preston.  With an eye for style, she is passionate about helping customers find the things they need.



Sue has worked in retail in Preston for many years, gaining experience from various outlets.  She joined Hellewells in 2012 and now assists with all aspects of the business.

Eugene has been a tailor for over 40 years, 30 of which have been in Preston where he ran his own business before coming to work exclusively for Hellewells in 2007.  He is responsible for all alterations at the shop, and can often do any small alterations while you wait.
