    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.

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



    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?
