Thomas Pink has said it will return after closing down its website and social media channels.

The fashion retailer, which is owned by LVMH, shut down its website and social media pages in December.

It was also removed from the luxury group’s “Fashion and Leather Goods” website page, which houses all of its brands.

In December, LVMH was reportedly seeking bidders for the brand, The Evening Standard reported.

Thomas Pink has since posted on its website: “Don’t fret—we’ll be back soon. We’re excited to announce that we’re returning to our roots with the same team that has helped build Thomas Pink Shirtmakers over the years”.

“We have some things to iron out and button up, but will be back soon with an improved website to offer you the highest quality English shirting made for modern life that you have come to know and love.”

The retailer permanently closed its store on London’s Jermyn Street last year, which put the future of the rest of its store estate at risk due to a lack of visitors.

Thomas Pink was founded by Irish brothers James, Peter and John Mullen in 1984.

Retail Gazette has approached LVMH for comment.
