Thread: Fosters Menswear. Principles for men.

    Fosters was our first choice when wanting to buy anything formal. They were reasonably priced, which was our main concern. Their rival, Burton's, were viewed as more expensive, so our local Foster's was always first port of call, and my mom always bought my school uniform from them.

    Used to love Fosters, remember having a white shirt with Fats Domino's band down the center like a tie.

    Does anyone remember Foster Brothers in Ashton or Salford in Manchester in the 70s? I worked there as a 13 yr old Saturday girl. Does anyone remember the Manager Mr Roberts? Or an older employee first name Carreena? She had long straight blonde hair. Please get in touch if you remember! Thank you very much June Phillips....

    Fosters had some classy menswear (for back in the day) I think - given the 1980s was good one minute in Clothes and Fashion and not the next!!

    I am sure I have an advert for Fosters in a Football Book from the late 90s (and though I have not read the book in question for ages) for many a moon I recalled being impressed by their range etc etc

    I vaguely remember seeing the adverts in the daily newspapers.

    I was looking at the UK Press Online archive to see which newspaper advert was the very last one to mention 1970s flares for sale, and I managed to find out that it was a Foster Menswear advert from the page 26 of Daily Mirror on Friday 7th December 1979. It mentions the "or flares" bit so it counts. And no doubt that the straight ones were selling like hot cakes at the time and the flares weren't doing too well, not surprisingly...

    Pretty sure Fosters in Southend was where I got my Farah's, Sta-Press, Waffle and Tonic trousers from BITD.

    Fosters and Farrar's go hand in hand" or they definitley did do in my youth Mulletino (like at Youth Clubs and/or School) if you was daring enough to "chance them" as School trousers!

    In saying this Fosters became Burton's I think and they are still very decent for Mens Clothes now I am tempted to believe!!
