Untitled[edit]

Edited biography and awards sections into timelines, but the article as a whole still needs cleanup and wikifying Lokicarbis 01:55, Feb 11, 2005 (UTC)

Is this article about a person or a product line?[edit]

George Davies is referred to as both a He and an It. Which does this article refer to?

Tone of article[edit]

The start of this article reads more like an advertising feature in a fashion magazine than something in an encyclopaedia.

Contradiction?[edit]

This article seems to contradict the Next (retailer) article regarding the foundation of Next?!?! Can someone explain?

According to next's corporate website [1] the account in Next (retailer) is correct. From George Davies (retailer) it sounds like George was the designer for next while J Hepworth & Son was the entrepreneur, so I'll see if I can find something to back that up and clarify the article. --- Richard CHSTalk 15:05, 13 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Yep, it was a joint venture. Terence Conran owned Hepworth, and hired Davies to run the new chain. [2][3] --- Richard CHSTalk 15:10, 13 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Also remember that Davies was ousted from Next in a boardroom coup, so they're not going to want to overplay Davies' role. User:lawsonrob

Rewrite[edit]

This needs a rewrite. Its too long through inclusion of non-enecyclopedic text, making it resultantly largely unreferenced, with those references that are included not formatted correctly. Some of the references used also go to paysites, which doesn't comply with WP:REF. Anyone fancy joining in can do so here. Rgds, --Trident13 (talk) 00:39, 31 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
