After the downfall of Chester Barrie, I understand that the company has been reformed: the name has been bought by a consortium, and the manufacturing wing is a separate company now entitled "The Cheshire Clothing Company". I've heard that the latter came into being after a management buyout, and that almost all of the Chester Barrie workers were retained, though the outfit relocated to a new site in Crewe. Has anyone seen any of the newer suits? Are they made to the same standard?
