Fifty Shilling Tailors was a British chain of shops selling men's clothes.

Founded in Leeds West Yorkshire in 1905 by Henry Price, the chain expanded to over 399 stores across the country.

In 1936, Fifty Shilling Tailors had opened a new store in Westgate just across the road and Dewsbury's retail trade was booming.

In 1958 the company was sold to UDS, which renamed it John Collier It continued to trade within the UDS empire until 1983 when UDS was sold to Hanson plc. In order to recoup the cost of the purchase Hanson sold on a number of UDS assets, including John Collier to a management buy-out team. In 1985 the company was sold on to the Burton Group, but the brand was discontinued and no longer exists today.
