A new menswear store is set to open in Welwyn Garden City's Howard Centre this weekend.

Gaffer will be welcoming its first customers on Saturday (November 18), with Welwyn Hatfield Mayor Pankit Shah set to open the store from 10.30am.

The menswear retailer already has a successful store in Hemel Hempstead, and offers popular brands including Sergio Tacchini, Ben Sherman, Lambretta, Fila and Weekend Offender.

"We aim to bring you the best in retro and heritage clothing, so whether your scene casual, skinhead, mod or just geezers who haven't given up, we have it covered with decades of menswear experience," reads the Gaffer website.

Gaffer have been teasing a new store on their social media page for a number of weeks, posting a picture of a set of keys with the caption "and just like that another Gaffer was born".
