English Brands We Love
This month we’re taking a look at the great English brands that have moulded our style with their contemporary menswear designs, and inspired us to embrace the latest trends in men’s clothing. Rule Britannia!
Launched in London in 1975, Peter Werth began his journey into menswear by specialising in knitwear, before evolving into the unique, sharp clothing creations we see today. The Peter Werth clothing collection at Designerwear showcases an effortless British cool vibe with their sophisticated long sleeve shirts, lightweight bomber jackets and smart, lace up suede shoes. We also have knitted long sleeve polo shirts which reflect the brand’s heritage. A versatile colour palette of charcoal, grey and navy proves favourable among those who enjoy a minimalistic, sleek look.
This brand have become synonymous with their distinctive ‘FCUK’ initialism and become one of Britain’s greatest retailers of clothing, accessories, fragrances and homeware. Created in 1972, French Connection originally started as a womenswear brand which expanded to include menswear in 1976, and has since become a globally admired brand. At Designerwear we have some classic FCUK motif t-shirts and polo shirts which are perfect for spring time casual daywear. Team with your favourite pair of slim-fit jeans and comfortable trainers for a laidback look.
One of the most well-known sportswear brands Reebok was actually founded as early as 1895 in Bolton, UK, under the name of J.W Foster and Sons. It’s been operating as a subsidiary of another sportswear giant Adidas since 2005, creating countless innovative products with a sports apparel focus. Our collection of Reebok jackets, trainers and t-shirts all possess the high quality and distinctive fitness look, with zip fastenings and lightweight materials. The hooded zip tops are the perfect outerwear choice for jogging or enjoying outdoor sports, or even simply as an addition to a casual outfit with a pair of jogging bottoms.
