Clothes were status symbols for a very small proportion of those living in the Victorian period. Many people wore only what they could afford and so clothes changed hands many times and hand me downs and mended clothes were the norm. Clothiers like Chas Jeneson and Co., organised the manufacture of cloth. They would provide their workers with materials and they would make inexpensive garments to be sold in the shop. These were not stores for the upper classes but were the cheaper stores for the lower middle and working classes.
