ReSolve sells TM Lewin online

T. M. Lewin & Sons Limited, a long established United Kingdom based menswear retailer, was founded in 1898 by Thomas Mayes Lewin and became renowned for the sale of formal shirts.

In May 2020 SCP Private Equity purchased TM Lewin from Bain Capital. This acquisition secured the future of the brand at a time of unprecedented uncertainty within the retail sector. After considerable review, and due to the many issues currently being experienced by High Street retailers, it has been determined that the future of the TM Lewin brand will be online only.

ReSolve was engaged to manage the restructuring process and has just agreed the sale of the online business of TM Lewin to Torque Brands, via a pre-pack administration.

‘We are pleased to have been able to save the online business of this great British retail brand at a time when the High Street is experiencing such difficulties and many brands may disappear completely. ReSolve will always strive to save businesses where viable.’

Cameron Gunn, Senior Partner, ReSolve

ReSolve were advised by Shoosmiths; Aaron Harlow (partner), Lee Sennett (partner) and Charlotte Doyle (senior associate). Aaron said:

‘We are delighted to have assisted in this matter to rescue the historic T.M. Lewin brand, at a difficult time for retailers.’
