A Moss Bros window display
The formal suit and menswear retailer saw pre-tax profit rise 15.7% during the first half of the year ended 29 July.
Moss Bros saw pre-tax profits rise 15.7% to £4.2m for the first half of the year, up from £3.7m for the same period last year.
Total group revenue, excluding VAT, also rose by 4.3% on the previous year to £66.6m.
Continued investment into the group’s web presence has played a major role in this success with e-commerce sales rising by 14.5% on the prior year - representing 11.2% of the group’s total sales.
However, hire sales, which represent 12.8% of the group’s total sales, fell by 8.4% when compared to the same period last year.
Brian Brick, chief executive officer, said: "We are pleased with the performance of Moss Bros during the first half in what was a very tough trading environment.
“The early response to the 2017 Autumn/Winter ranges has been encouraging and we continue to see our retail like-for-like sales improve.”
