J. & J. Borland Brothers
J. & J. Borland Brothers, Clothiers, 40, Gordon Street. —
Clothiers of the very highest class are thoroughly represented in the firm of Messrs. J. & J. Borland Brothers. It is, therefore, difficult to make too prominent mention of this firm. The business was established under the present title, when the premises they occupy were erected thirteen, years ago.
The establishment consists of a handsome shop and showroom tastefully fitted to display the elegant costumes for ladies and gentlemen, for which the firm is renowned. These costumes include military uniforms, ladies’ riding habits, those for Highlanders, and liveries. Messrs. J. & J. Borland Brothers’ trade, which extends all over the country, and abroad to customers who have left the country, requires the services of fifty men in the busy season.
Mr. James Borland, the sole proprietor of the business, who possesses a most agreeable manner, owes his fame as a clothier of the highest class to his thoroughly practical knowledge, his artistic taste, and his high principles of equity, which he so conspicuously exercises in all business transactions.
