We believe that most people want to look good, but don’t enjoy the traditional shopping experience. Who wants to spend their Saturday afternoon battling the crowds in physical stores, or trawling through an overwhelming number of clothes online?

Thread brings people a shortlist of the perfect clothes for them. Everything is personalised to their size, budget and style. We achieve this by fusing together talented human stylists with powerful machine learning algorithms.

E-commerce is quickly replacing traditional retail, and personalisation is the future of all e-commerce. We’re leading the way in building a next generation user experience that is far more helpful and effective than the browse-thousands-of-items-in-a-grid era of the Internet.

Our goal is to make it easy to dress well. We believe if we get this right that the majority of people in the world would prefer to shop this way. We are working to make this the new default way of shopping for hundreds of millions of people, and increase people’s happiness and self-confidence in the process.

After taking part in Y Combinator in 2012, we’ve since raised £12M in funding and grown to 600,000 men in the UK using the service. We're backed by incredible people such as Balderton, Beringea, Andrew Jennings (former president of Saks 5th Avenue), Demis Hassabis (DeepMind co-founder), William Reeve (founder of LoveFilm), Edgar Bronfman Jr (former owner of Warner Music), Errol Damelin (founder of Wonga), Guy Hipwell (former head of online at Harrods and Liberty), Shakil Khan (founding investor in Spotify), Michael Birch (founder of Bebo), Tom Hulme (design director of IDEO), Miriam Lahage (former vice president of fashion at eBay), start-up accelerator Y Combinator and many others.

​What we stand for
For the founders of Thread, this isn’t our first startup. We previously built two companies to millions of customers and successful acquisition. This time, however, we’re working on building a long-term, enduring company that we hope will acquire others one day, rather than be acquired ourselves.As a business there are three things we believe matter:1) Crafting a transformational user experience2) Assembling a team of the most talented people in the world3) Building a strong, vibrant culture focused on excellence

​Thread Culture and Values
As a team we’re extremely focused on culture and values. They drive everything about how we operate.Our values are:User experience obsessedUncomfortably fastExtreme clarityCandourRelentless self-iterationAct like an ownerEnjoy the journey togetherWe anchor the company around these principles, and go much further than most companies, as building a strong, excellence-focused culture is one of the primary reasons our founders decided to start a company together.As an example, we have a company-wide retrospective each week to discuss whether we’re getting stronger or weaker at living them, and regularly put time into projects that help us get stronger.Building an environment that allows talented people the freedom to achieve excellence is something we think deeply about.
