Inspiration & tips

Stylish shopping!

The Bagijnhof-Visstraat area is a part of Dordrecht where you can find exclusive men's and women's fashion and optimal service. We list three of these stores for you. And also tell you all about The Sting in the store on the Sarisgang.

Concept in the center of Dordrecht

In recent years, the Visstraat in Dordrecht has been a coming and going of stores. Menswear store Alexander Roodfeld - a household name in the field of fashionable-classic menswear for 91 years - on the other hand, has been a steady beacon in the ebb and flow of (clothing) stores on this street for fourteen years.

Exclusive collection
For four generations, the Dordrecht men's fashion store has passed from father to son. Ties Roodfeld, owner since 2013, ensures that in addition to the familiar brands you will always find the most beautiful new fashion. To spot new brands, he therefore travels twice a year to the international fashion fair in Italy.

Tailor-made & self-assembled
Although it is almost impossible not to succeed for an outfit at Roodfeld, there is also always the option to have a pair of pants, tailored suit or shirt put together entirely according to your own taste and size. With a choice of no less than 4,000 fabrics, 200 types of lining, countless stitching, buttons and other options (your name in your tailored suit? No problem!), you're sure to find exactly what you're looking for here. Ties: "We almost never have to sell our customers no."

And the customer service doesn't stop there: upon request, Ties will also come to your office or home with a selection of clothes to see if your ideal garment is among them. Top-notch service!

Menswear and craftsmanship

Since 2017, the Visstraat has gained an asset in the field of men's fashion with Jac Hensen. As the only branch in the Randstad, the Dordrecht branch attracts customers from Zeeland to Amsterdam.

The impressive art deco-style corner building, houses 1,500 square meters of menswear. In this spacious, bright store, you will experience the passion the Hensen family has had for men's fashion and craftsmanship for 40 years. The fresh, stylish interior of the store is a good reflection of what you will find here in menswear.

Spread over three floors, every fashion-conscious man from 18 to 88 can find the outfit he wants here: from jeans-related and casual to formal and businesslike with daring. "The super minimalism of recent years is also over in men's fashion," says branch manager Tim. "Fortunately, it can all be more expressive and colorful again. Green had already crept into many a closet, but you will also see yellow frequently in men's fashion this year."

Wedding Department
Are you planning to get married? Even then you have come to the right place at Jac Hensen. Come browse around or make a special appointment where one of the enthusiastic, experienced staff will quietly guide you through 'suit land'.

The unique Costes lifestyle

Until now, the stretch of Bagijnhof-Visstraat was mostly the domain of men in terms of quality clothing. But the Costes chain of stores - the somewhat more mature "sister" of The Sting - in the former Lindershuis, the ladies in this stretch of street also have a whole department store to themselves.

In the beautiful monumental building in Dordrecht, we are also introduced to the unique Costes lifestyle; a brand of international allure where you can go for a day-to-night look for every occasion.

24/7 feeling
The stylish collection follows trends and is put together each season based on different themes, focusing on the '24/7 feeling'. Here, every fashion-conscious woman with a passion for lifestyle will find a suitable look for every moment of the day, including timeless basics and accessories.

Eye for detail
At Costes, an eye for detail does not stop with the clothing collection. In fact, the interior of the store is carefully tailored to the location, making the most of the characteristic features of the special building. The interior has a cozy, luxurious feel with designer chairs and lamps and exudes a warm, metropolitan atmosphere.

Divergent brands with their own style

Passing by The Sting unnoticed is no longer an option in Dordrecht. With the building on the corner of Sarisgang/ Statengang, the Dordrecht branch of the fashion store has almost its own street!

Sting shopping new style
The Sting Dordrecht thus occupies the entire ground and 1st floors of the building - good for 1,200 square meters of shopping pleasure. The branch is one of the first in the country to be decorated according to the "white concept," The Sting's new interior concept. Light, fresh, sleek and - you guessed it - lots of white are the key words here, making the store look very spacious.

A network of brands
The Sting is known for: diverse (own) brands, each with its own style, which means that truly everyone succeeds at The Sting for an outfit. From young on-trend fashion lovers to a more mature and casual target group; here you'll find clothes for an informal look as well as for a specific style or occasion, including the cutest accessories and finest everyday basics.

Sting alley
With the arrival of The Sting, the Statengang has been transformed from an inconspicuous thoroughfare to a passage with allure. And who knows, maybe in the future the Statengang will be popularly known as the "Stingstraatje.
