GOODBYE SIXTEEN47.COM

Sixteen47 is closing
in the Spring of 2019

We are planning to close our on line clothing shop: www.sixteen47.com

1647Ltd was founded 28 years ago – in 1991.

“Though we are very sad to say goodbye to all our wonderful customers, we feel this is the right decision at this time.”

We will continue to trade normally until the end of May 2019 and will make our Spring 2019 collection a memorable one!”

  • Debbie Clifford I’m truly gutted as I’ve been wearing your clothes since you had a small range in Evans, then off your website when the range was tiny, last ordering a couple of weeks ago.

    I’ve used your clothes to guage my weight loss over tge last year, coming down from a 5 into the size 3’s that are a little roomy now. I was so looking forward to ordering size 2s and 1s. 😭

  • Fanny Elliott Noooo. The only clothes I enjoy wearing. Bloody typical, whenever I find something I love, it is discontinued.

    Good luck with whatever you do next.

  • Ann Michelle Copeland I am truly devastated that you’re closing! I live in Australia and have found it so hard to buy well made, long lasting clothes. So many of the local designs are badly made, over priced and tacky. Your designs are amazing and beautiful. I particularly love all the plain colour items – plain things are so hard to find. I wish you all the very, very best for the future but geez i am SO SAD!

  • Mags Anderson Just to help out everyone if you want the most comfy size tights ever then look at SNAG their largest size fits a 32/34 with ease and especially if you have enormous legs too as I have Lipodeama and horrid lumpy legs and also the colour range is to die for. They have a neutral called builders tea and the 50 denier hies all the veins and nasties!! https://snagtights.com/

  • Alexandra Vella I’m gutted. I remember the shop originally on Gloucester Road where I bought my first 1647 outfit. Lovely staff and no pressure to squeeze into clothes that weren’t right. I have so many lovely items from you in my wardrobe which have all stood the test of time. And no one makes cami tops nearly as well. I wish you the best with whatever you move into.

  • Sally Phipps So sorry to hear this but as someone who is now enjoying retirement, I wish Helen all the best. My late sister Sue bought virtually all her clothes from you. She had MS and knew she could always get something from you that was both stylish and comfortable. Even when she didn’t feel great, she looked it! Thank you xx
