All my Rule Britania mates are all wearing cheap Chinese or Vietnamese clothes and driving foreign cars but they see themselves as English patriots especially when they put plastic flags on their cars during football tournaments..

Interesting but maybe not hitting the nail. May need more research. Site is a trading shop with most members dealing in used clothes. Not quite made in UK by brand names. One of them reported to be from INDIA, UK. Thought funny.

I meant the bigger brands of clothing.

As I believe getting the clothes manufactured here in the UK generally means better quality. And find that many brands that are produced abroad may be cheaper but you are loosing the quality.

I also prefer to know that my clothes are being made ethically by someone who chooses to take that career and not forced to work for pennies. I am not a complete snob about it but it is something i prefer.

So here is the million dollar question, would you be willing to pay more for clothing that is manufactured in the UK Or are you more interested in style?


Albam etc. have been doing for while now, although Albam is actually cheaper than other brands.

What brands so as to help those that may like to buy hen can. Agree with the chap who said buying 3rd world probably more ethical as then at least they are earning pennies rather than take the job away and earn less.
But still good to know British brands.
Thanks

There's a lot of smaller leather and shoe companies in the Northampton area (trickers etc.), I'm sure Man Of Kent can come up with a whole list.

Thanks. Lot of the Northamptonshire shoe companies. C&J, Churches, Alfred Sergent, Loakes, Edward Green, Bakers, John Lobb (ready to wear oly), etc...

And know also that most of the finest fabric merchants in the world have a lot of their best fabrics woven in England. Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry, Scabal, etc...

What are you trying to say with the the first sentence?

Also most of those companies do bespoke, just search around on here.

Should clarify better. Thanks for pointing out. What I meant was those are some of the Northampton shoe companies. Some, not all, do bespoke but some like Lobb and C&J only do here bespoke in Paris. All do handmade of course.

Does that answer?
