Legend has it that while on a car journey Seth Godin and his friends passed fields and fields of black and white cows. While constantly facing the same outlook, they discussed how remarkable it would be to pass a field and see a PURPLE COW standing amongst the regular cows. They commented how exciting and unique this would be.

Now picture walking along the high street and seeing retailer after retailer, seeing the same promotions in the window and the same clothes all the time when eventually you come to the entrance of Lyle and Scott, George Street. Your eyes light up… a repair and personalization station on the right, a café and seating area on the left, the finest knitwear and apparel occupying the middle of the store and in the distance Edinburgh’s newest barber all under one roof.
