In the eighties I wore Norman Hilton tweeds and worsteds. Bulletproof fabrics with character. I also wore a lot of Chipp through the early 2000s some of which was reputed to have been made by NH. I had a few couple of Polos, but for some reason Polo never really fit me that well.

Check out this one from Oliver Brown in the UK.
