How It All Started
Tin Trousers was created in its original form in 2005 shortly after marrying into the Royal Navy! Originally known as Erin Military Tailoring or www.erinhird.co.uk, I started providing striping up and alterations to uniforms working from the spare bedroom in our married quarter.
It wasn't long until a growing family forced a move out of the home and into HMS Nelson Wardroom to run their Second Hand Uniform Store, known in RN circles as both "The Deadman's Chest", and Tin Trousers!
Over the last 15 years TT has grown beyond anything I could have dreamed of originally, and is continuing to go from strength to strength with a growing team of assistants to help keep the standards high and get your uniforms back to you as quickly as possible.
We strive to provide a high standard of workmanship and only use traditional methods and materials to provide the Royal Navy (and other services) with uniforms worthy of their high standards.
