BritishWeLove aims to celebrate British heritage, craftsmanship and contemporary work of well recognised and outstanding British brands and designers. They stock some of the finest heritage brands, including those with Royal Warrants, and new brands you didn’t realise you needed in your life.
When it comes to quality accessories, hats, and jewellery, you can’t go wrong with a unique, British-made brand.
All the classics
You can’t get much more gentlemanly than Jermyn Street’s Benson & Clegg, former tailors to King George VI and Royal Warrant Holders to HRH The Prince of Wales.
Benson & Clegg’s collection of cufflinks is uber timeless and traditional, featuring a choice of the City of London crest, Scottish lion, Spitfires and the Royal Blue Cross. They’re crafted from hallmarked sterling silver, hand finished with detailing, and designed for double cuff shirts. Perfect for the man in your life who needs to be polished and ready for tea with the Queen at all times.
Don’t forget the dog
It’s all very well kitting yourself out in all this British-made clobber, but your dog deserves a little something too.
BritishWeLove stock Hettie pet accessories, handmade from British woven wool. The Jasper dog coat comes in two different check patterns, with a cotton polka dot lining, providing a comfortable fit for a small, medium, or giant pooch. A lead can be easily attached through a hole by the collar, but owners should bear in mind the cleaning instructions are appropriately upmarket – dry clean only. So no muddy puddles, just civilized and dry winter walks.
A blogger who’s permanently in search of style
BritishWeLove recently teamed up with Grey Fox, the blogging pseudonym of menswear obsessive David Evans, previously featured in The Times, The Rake, and GQ. If it’s designed for men with style, chances are he’s tried it on and featured it on his blog.
David’s eye is drawn to style that works for the older gentleman, British-made tailoring and accessories that continue to be timeless. He’s not afraid of a cravat or two either. He began blogging when he discovered how “many high quality products were made in this country”, so he’s the perfect collaborator for BritishWeLove.
Got a wedding to go to?
Sometimes it feels like millinery is a lost art. The high street is so full of feeble fascinators, you run the risk of seeing yours on someone else’s head, and that person over there, oh and someone else by the buffet has it too.
Judy Bentinck’s collection of hats and headpieces includes the striking Ada headpiece, made from Sinamay and decorated with peacock feathers. For wedding guests who would consider peacock feathers understated, there’s the light blue velour Zelda cocktail hat, trimmed with a Lady Amherst feather and lined with silk. Chances of seeing someone else at the church wearing this? Almost zero.
