We know we could have told you this with our own range of men's leather brogues and ranges from the British Brands Barkers' and Loakes', but According to Drapers British leather manufacturers are undergoing somewhat of a renaissance at the moment.

A recent report from Drapers on the leather goods industry has highlighted that an increase in the demand of high quality, British leather goods is resulting in many now fighting their corner to continue to grow the industry.

Their report detailed information on both tanner and manufacturers and we can vouch for the quality of product you are buying when you buy from local UK and Irish brands.

Brands such as Robinsons, Loakes and Barkers have been around for year with a provenance and heritage in the sector that is unrivaled when you choose to buy cheaper (which usually means that they have been made outside of the UK/ Ireland).

We pride ourselves in only stocking high quality brands and in support local manufacturers. In fact we have just started stocking Hata Flat caps from Co Donegal in Ireland in our offline store!
