A rich British heritage spanning over 110 years…

Founded in the city of Leicester in 1906, Gymphlex was the birth of a British Sportswear manufacturing Institution. From our early days of providing excellent P.E kits and sportswear, the Gymphlex name became synonymous with high quality, authentic and durable sportswear to schools across the country. We swiftly grew our reputation of a renowned British sportswear institution and gained a loyal fan base of successful sportsmen and women, many wearing our garments from their school days and throughout their International sporting careers. We’re proud to have supplied our garments to Premier division Football teams, Rugby teams and even royalty have chosen to wear the Gymphlex brand.(See Our Journey for more information)

With over a century of expertise and commitment to creating beautiful, functional and authentic sports garments, we are immensely proud of our established heritage. To this day we remain true to our humble origins in providing exquisitely crafted sports leisurewear, championing garments that are classical in design, rich in texture and expertly crafted to exceptional standards.

Innovation and Inspiration

After many years of success in the sportswear market, in 1990, Gymphlex identified a new and exciting opportunity to develop the brand internationally in Japan. Launched as a Leisurewear range, where it continues to thrive today, our exclusive styles are carefully recreated for the fashion forward, conscientious Japanese consumer. This sportswear-inspired collection can be found in nearly all of the finest shops all across Japan, including Beams, United Arrows, Aranciato, News, Pickup and BShop, to name just a few.

Moving forwards, the Gymphlex brand developed, and we were quickly accredited for our decades of passion and expertise in sportswear design and manufacture. In 2001, we began manufacturing for many leading designer brands, including; Burberry, Barbour, Lonsdale and Margaret Howell.

Following on from the success in Japan, we launched our Originals Gymphlex collection in Britain; a high quality, authentic, UK made leisurewear range, that draws inspiration from more than a century of sporting archives. The collection consists of classic leisurewear pieces, proudly made from rich, traditional cloths to our own specifications and all beautifully crafted in carefully selected factories in the UK, Japan and around the world. This collection is the epitome of Gymphlex, exuding quality, stylish comfort and extreme attention to detail.
