Triads is one of Middlesbrough longest standing and much-loved independent fashion boutiques. They sell a range of clothing and specialise in designer menswear such as Boss, Patagonia, New Balance, Carhartt, Nike and Adidas Originals, and they are the go-to place if you’re after the latest limited-release trainers.

We caught up with Collin at the end of 2020 to find out how they were adapting to the changes and looking forward to providing the latest fashions into 2021.

Hi, it’s Colin Donaldson from Triads on Albert and Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough.

I’ve been since 1988 selling niche and contemporary clothing. Our online presence isn’t too badly affected at the moment but obviously the stores are swimming against the tide with what’s going on in the world at the moment.

We pride ourselves and being a young local Teesside based employer. All our staff have been raised up on Teesside and enjoyed shopping in the local area.

It goes without saying we’ve made our stores Covid secure, those of you who wish for a personal appointment they can book those through the website.

Obviously 2020 has been a highly challenging year, we look forward to ending it on a massive high and to look forward to 2021 upwards an onwards.
