Menswear store Garment opened in Grove Village in November, and owner Ben Kettleborough believes his store is the remedy for fashion-conscious men in the town.

He said: “I’m aiming to provide men with another option for menswear in Weston.

“There isn’t much in Weston for men to choose from.

“We offer something different, but at an accessible price.
