Competitors test Herringbone for fit as sale begins

Herringbone, the upmarket clothing retailer that collapsed last month, has been put up for sale before its second creditors' meeting due in a fortnight. Administrator Martin Green, of BRI Ferrier, advertised the business for sale yesterday as a going concern. He told the Herald he had already received expressions of interest from competitors, including Rhodes & Beckett. He declined to name other suitors, saying they included smaller private equity players.

I hope that Herringbone remains a going concern.

My main worry if Rhodes and Beckett purchase it is that it would turn into a copy of R&B, which sells generally bland and mediocre shirts and suits that are about two-thirds the price of Herringbone's stuff whilst only being one third of the quality...
