Apparel Overview

John Pye Auctions has experience of selling a wide range of apparel items through our Retail Goods department, ranging from leisure wear to designer and formal event clothing. We utilise a range of auctions for such apparel stock, based on each clients’ stock range and value.

From department store chains instructing us to auction leisure and everyday wear through our retail auctions through to Saville Row tailors instructing John Pyes to manage their exclusive lines to high net worth buyers through our Luxury Asset auctions.

John Pye Auctions UK Hubs have designated salerooms to showcase apparel stock alongside complementary stock offerings including luxury watches, jewellery and gift wares, providing a suitable environment for such stock and creating a cross fertilisation of marketing and sales opportunities.

We have managed many apparel shop liquidations over the years – from bridal to outbound leisure – and have built up an extensive database of apparel buyers through our established auctions with goods sourced from the John Lewis Partnership.
