Afzal and Akmal Khushi 2010

Afzal and Akmal Khushi are directors and co-owners of Jacobs & Turner International, probably better known as TRESPASS.

Founded in 1938, Jacobs & Turner operated on a local scale for many years until passing into the ownership of the Khushi family in the late 1960s.  Development then became more rapid, particularly as the company began to specialise in winter sportswear and outdoor clothing under the aegis of Afzal and Akmal who both joined the business in the late 1970s. 

They transformed the small manufacturing company into an international lifestyle brand now selling and producing in more than 62 countries.   TRESPASS was awarded The UK Fashion Exports Award, formerly known as the British Apparel Export Award three years in a row.

Trespass entered the retail trade at the end of the 1990s and now has more than 70 stores in the UK and more than 40 franchises worldwide.   In the last five years it has also launched the subsidiary companies Trespass USA and Trespass Shanghai in its aspirations to become a global brand.

Trespass also acquired the assets and trade of Nevisport Ltd in late 2007 securing the jobs of 100 employees with business continuing to operate from stores in Aberdeen, Aviemore, Edinburgh, Fort William, Glasgow, Leeds, Middlesbrough, Newcastle and York.
