A grand tour of British heritage menswear and makes

Trends do exist. Among those is the center stage positioning of British heritage menswear and manufacture in the last 18 months or so. Last year I wrote an entry on UK heritage menswear and designing an English sartorial vacation.

Likewise, the observant folks at Esquire felt it was time to put the spotlight back on British heritage and went about capturing the look and feel in the summer of 2010. Below is the first of a series of visits to English and Scottish mills and makers including William Lockie (cashmere), textile mill Reid & Taylor, outerwear brand Mackintosh, Sunspel (men's underwear), Ettinger (leather goods), John Smedley (knitwear).

William Lockie, Reid & Taylor



Todd & Duncan, Johnston's of Elgin



Garynahine Harris Tweed, Breanish Tweed, Luskentyre Harris Tweed



Corgi, Fox Brothers



Enjoy the fantastic stories and individuals featured.
