The Markham story began in 1873 when the first store was opened by HW Markham in Adderley Street, Cape Town. A few years later, a second store opened in Eloff Street, Johannesburg and nearly a century and a half on, it stands as one of the most recognised, fashion-forward menswear brands in South Africa and Africa with over 330 stores. Take a look at our journey over 143 years here.
More than just a men’s tailoring store these days, Markham offers a complete lifestyle with a range of smart wear, casual wear, footwear, accessories, cell phones and fragrance. Our denim range is proudly anchored by Markham-owned Relay Jeans and complemented by a denim selection from G-Star, Guess and Levi’s. Markham fashion is now available 24/7 from our brand new online store, making the season’s hottest looks and key items available to everyone. Be sure to check it out here.
