Founded by Daniel McCall, an international auctioneer and his wife Annie McCall

Founded by Daniel McCall, an international auctioneer and his wife Annie McCall, a market trader who sold from a stall in the Castlegate area of Aberdeen.

McCalls Limited was established in 1887 in Upperkirkgate, Aberdeen, initially selling second hand goods, mainly clothing.

Unfortunately with the influx of imported clothing and the rise of the high street stores the demand for second-hand clothing diminished, however…

An increase in patriotic fervour and the desire to have a sense of belonging

An increase in patriotic fervour and the desire to have a sense of belonging and affiliation made a good case for supplying Highlandwear.

The McCalls saw an opening to offer their expertise in all Highlandwear products whilst making their availability affordable through Hire, the acceptance was an unqualified success.

Our dedication to our craft is recognised by the Guild of Master Craftsmen, a national organisation which promotes and supports excellence in workmanship.
