BDO administrators called to D2 Jeans

ADMINISTRATORS from BDO have been called to menswear retailer just after Christmas.

James Stephen and David Hill, partners at BDO, were appointed joint administrators to A & J Menswear which trades as D2 Jeans.

The duo closed 19 stores shortly after their appointment making about 200 people redundant.

Stephen said: “It is unfortunate that the economic climate and extremely difficult trading conditions have significantly affected the retail sector.

“However, we are hopeful of securing a sale of all or part of the Company, and will continue to trade the business whilst this is explored.”

A & J Menswear trades across about 47 stores in the UK.
