Set up as a small boutique in Edinburgh The Brotique is the definitive store for men, offering a tailored selection of products designed to meet the requirements of the modern man.
We select, the most useful, unique and authentic products on the market. Whether buying for yourself or looking for inspiration for a present, at The Brotique you will find something awesome. We have a great new store on Queen Street, right the heart of Edinburgh - we lovingly restored the whole space to build a perfectly crafted space for shopping and relaxing.
Founded by Richard Murphy our first little store in opened its doors in November 2013 in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. One intense year later we moved up the road to a store about 6 times the size and grew from 2 people in the team to 7.
At The Brotique we believe in products that are contemporary and stand the test of time. We like classic, high-quality things that are also a little bit different. Whether you’re looking for a great gift or a useful item for yourself, we have made it easier by selecting things that different lifestyles demand. Whether you are constantly on your bike or prefer to move to your own soundtrack, our products are designed that make life go that little bit smoother. We are always on the look out for cool things, and so we constantly refresh our shelves with new finds. That means, whatever the time of year, we’ve got something you will love.
We are the first service to provide gift hampers designed specifically with a man in mind. We call them #MANHAMPERS.
Traditional gift hampers contain wine and cheese. Not so with ours. Choose from an ever-changing selection of options for products to include in each hamper.
We also offer a custom hamper service for events, weddings or whatever the occasion may be.
We source things that aren’t generally available on the high street, gathering inspiration from around the world with a criteria that is unique to us. We love innovation, and we think collaboration with local craftsmen and small businesses is always a good thing.
Each product we choose has it’s own story and values. Part of that is about premium quality. Part of that is about seeking out products that are a little bit different. The essential thing that we screen for is style and substance, combined.
The rapidly changing climate is causing business to adapt and take an increasingly forward looking approach to resources and products. Our green conscience is why we believe in the importance of selling products that are innovative, useful and long-lasting.
The desire to offer a curated source of mens' goods had been something we'd discussed around the studio for months, until we decided to repurpose our Stockbridge space to become a new retail concept, aimed squarely at men.
It's not just the products though, we wanted to build a destination and a new retail experience fusing traditional values with modern retail. We aim to offer a stylish and vibrant space for our customers and friends to feel welcome and relaxed.
Our team has a diverse background ranging from fashion to technology. With a passion for design, detail and lasting quality, we selected the initial range of products from stuff that we would want to buy ourselves.
