We have always been interested in working with makers as opposed to brands. These makers are experts in their specific field whether that be trousers (Incotex) or shirts (both Eton & Drake's) for example. Alot of our makers have atleast 50 years of heritage.
We hope to introduce these makers to customers who will benefit from the quality of their wares for years to come.

DRAKE'S, shirting and printed accessories
Drake’s began life in East London in 1977, a stone’s throw from the city’s silk weaving roots in Spitalfields. Originally a maker of men’s ‘Scarves, Shawls and Plaids,’ the company found a loyal following amongst both high fashion boutiques and conservative tailoring houses in the most discerning markets of Paris, Milan and Tokyo. The company soon began producing handmade ties and handkerchiefs under the watchful eye of eponymous founder, Michael Drake, which quickly took up his place at the heart of the business to this day.

He was charmed by these styles that transmitted tradition and originality, while expressing high craftsmanship ability.
