There’s nothing quite like a British made product. You can see how carefully crafted it is, all the materials have a story, and the quality’s tangible between your fingers.
BritishWeLove stock Lanigan & Hulme’s range of heritage menswear brands. Located in Manchester’s historic Royal Exchange arcade, the former centre of Manchester’s cotton industry. It’s fitting that it would now be home to a brand that’s so committed to sourcing premium materials and products.
Crombie ties and pocket squares
Handmade in London from luxurious cotton, wool, or silk, Crombie’s ties and pocket squares include only the finest natural fibres. Crombie’s neck ties feature a dual lining of cotton and wool to maintain the shape of the design, and the longevity of the material. The brand’s retro coats and pure wool suits are the making of a thoroughly modern gentleman – sharply tailored and dignified in any setting.
The firm was established 200 years ago by a family of weavers in Aberdeen, and despite the change of location their manufacturing practices are much the same.
NPS brogues and Sunspel cotton socks
The NPS brogue is made from grain calf leather with a double thickness sole and heel. The structure is constructed with a specialised Goodyear welted method. Every pair is made in the Northampton Protective Society factory in Wollaston, and will arrive in a handmade racing green box.
The natural companion to a quality brogue is a fantastic pair of cotton socks. Sunspel’s are designed for comfortable wear throughout the year. The fabric used in all Sunspel products is combed, twisted and treated for extra softness and comfort. The textile factory was established by Thomas Hill over 150 years ago in 1860, pioneering high quality socks and underwear. They’re still just as comfortable, still designed in England, and made in Italy.
Classic styles from Hackett and Tommy Nutter
Hackett is one of the most notable British menswear brands, but significantly younger than many of the others in Lanigan & Hulme’s collection. Created in 1979 by Jeremy Hackett, the first shop was apparently on the ‘wrong end’ of the King’s Road. Now, Hackett’s collection of polo shirts, button downs, suits, and blazers are quintessentially British. The Devon collection is nothing short of yacht-appropriate.
The classic Tommy Nutter suit comes directly from Savile Row. Renowned for statement tailoring and quality workmanship, Tommy Nutter suits use only British cloth in their British suits. The limited edition overcoat is cut sharply and patterned with the classic Tommy Nutter check.
