Provenance: who we are and where we come from

Since being founded in 2002 we have existed as a fashion label that strives to provide quality above all else. Everything we produce is stamped with a country of origin label, but also the coordinates of our design studio which you’ll find in the basement of our 62 Lambs Conduit Street store. We believe the provenance of our product and its journey to you are an essential part of our process that gives our product unique personality, delivered honestly.

300 trees

Over the past two years we have taken a focused approach to improving our environmental performance. We have transitioned all our locations to renewable energy suppliers, we have significantly increased our use of environmentally favourable fabrics such as organic cotton and will continue to improve upon this, we have also significantly reduced the amount of packaging we use as well as removing as much plastic as possible. As happy as we are with the progress we have made we know that footprint reduction is only one half of the coin for us. Until we are making products using regenerative practices and using carbon negative methods of manufacturing we will always be taking more than we give back.

How to Have a Greener Christmas

Christmas is a truly wonderful time of the year. Despite the temperature, it brings us a sense of warmth and it allows us to take a step back from the day-to-day; to relax and spend some time with the ones we hold close. It is only right that such a special occasion should be treated with consideration.

The 'Après' Collection

Après, the epicurean instinct that follows an oh so hard day on the slopes. Oliver Spencer’s inimitable take on the 1970s approach to this louche activity sees warm dogtooth wools teamed with bright, bold checked shirting and bold knitwear.

Velvet & Cord

The origins of corduroy date back as early as 200 AD from Egypt and was formerly known as ‘Fustian’. Imported in to Europe, via Italy in the 14th century and predominantly used by the aristocrats of the continent, it’s known in more recent times to be a staple of Geography teachers, farmers and a uniform for the working class; it’s fair to say that the evolution of corduroy is testament to its versatility, depth of colour and hardy tactility.
