About the Store

USC is a fashion retailer found in most big cities across the UK, but short of stopping in occasionally to browse, it seems to go largely unrecognised by most of us. Originally standing for ‘United Sports Corporation’, this Scottish-founded business now focuses less on sportswear and more on fashion – and is one of the hottest stockists of branded fashion on the British high street.

The chain is often underrated and disappeared from many high streets in the last few years as the business underwent a restructure, but it is now firmly back in the black and moving from strength to strength. There are now over 60 stores throughout the country, including a flagship store on Oxford Street and even now a first international store in Belgium, on the infamous Brussels Dock!

A selected stockist of some of the world’s finest fashion labels spanning menswear, womenswear, and children’s wear, the collections in-store and online are what really makes USC. We cover off some, but by no means all, of them here!

German luxury fashion house Hugo Boss are notoriously picky with who they allow to stock their ranges, and USC play home to almost their entire ranges of Hugo, Boss, Boss Orange and Boss Green! Polo Ralph Lauren have also chosen USC as a trusted stockist, and offer regular changes of collections through their stores and website spanning all genders of clothing. Headquartered in New York, the label is still run by Lauren himself and he’s now valued at hundreds of billions of dollars!

For less formal looks, Levi Jeans can be found at USC – a bonus, as their standalone high street stores are few and far between. You’ll also find Quiksilver, Fire Trap, G Star, Calvin Klein and Kangol. And staying true to their sports roots, premium sporting brands including Puma, New Balance, Skecher and Slazenger are all stocked too.

With so few high stores, and their space being limited given the number of labels that USC offers, shopping online is the best way for you to be able to gain access to the full range of fashion designers on offer.

Seasonal sales offer further money-off promotions year-round. Pre-orders can be made for fashion collections that are yet to be released on general sale, and any returns that need to be made can be done so for free. You can also pay by PayPal through the USC website: so if you’ve managed to make some extra cash online through eBay or other online sales sites, this could be the place to spend it!

If you’re a label junkie, USC is the shopping destination for you, both online and off. You won’t find a better or more comprehensive fashion house range anywhere else.

History of the Brand

USC started life in Edinburgh as a single sportswear store in 1989. It stocked third party brands, but only spanning sportswear and leisurewear, and continued on largely as it was without vast growth or business development until 2004, when it was purchased by Sir Tom Hunter.

Within four years of the purchase, the firm went into administration but was bought again to save it. In 2011, the entire chain was sold to Sports Direct, owned by Mike Ashley, who already had good experience in managing a rapidly-expanding sportswear brand business. Ashley also bought the fashion retailer Republic to stop them going under, and merged the two. Many stores were closed over this period, and it was these closures that saw many consumers lose faith or forget who USC were.

However, by 2015, things were chequered again for USC. Media reports were that Ashley was preparing to place the brand into administration. The administrators restructured the business to streamline it and avoid further losses, and things began to look positive again. The brand portfolio expanded vastly, and fashion labels began to flock back to USC, helping the business grow and develop.
