Our Story

Our Story

We treat our customers well and make clothing that is as comfortable as it is bold and distinctive


Hello chaps!

Lord Trousers, aka Nick Alderton, here to welcome you to Peter Christian. We are purveyors of fine gentlemen's clothing, a family tradition that spans generations. We are based in the medieval English village of Partridge Green, which overlooks the beautiful South Downs National Park.


Nick Alderton and wife, Miranda, together have over 70 years of experience in the menswear industry.

Family heritage

My family is steeped in menswear heritage dating back to 1860. My grandfather ran Aldertons the Tailors, a successful London outfitters specializing in hunting tweeds, military uniforms and plus fours, until all eight shops went up in smoke one fateful night during the Blitz of the Second World War.
