Thomas McCosh & Son

Thomas McCosh & Son, Tailors and Clothiers, 38, Hope Street.

    The clothing industries are notably represented in the city by the firm of Thomas McCosh & Son, of the above address. Established thirty years ago in Argyle Street, by Mr. Thomas McCosh who removed to No. 6, in Hope Street, and was there joined by his son James fifteen years ago this business became the property of Mr. James McCosh ten years ago, when his father retired. Six years ago Mr. McCosh entered his present commodious premises, which comprise a handsome shop, two fitting-rooms, cutting and workrooms. The trade, in which upwards of thirty hands and two cutters are employed, is of the highest class and is chiefly confined to Glasgow and the suburbs.

    Mr. McCosh owes his influential connection to the high reputation the firm has all along enjoyed as skilful cutters, and to their keeping a stock of the best quality only of material. Mr. McCosh is a well known and highly respected gentleman, and continues to maintain the reputation of his house by the same care and skill through which his connection was formed.
