Marks and Spencer launches Best of British Collection

Marks and Spencer launched its Best of British Collection today, which I understand is either manufactured in Britain or at least is made from British milled fabrics. Menswear in this very limited range includes outerwear, jackets, suits, shoes, bags, jumpers, shirts, trousers, ties, belts and braces.  Womenswear includes skirts, outerwear, trousers, jackets, dresses, shoes and scarves. The prices are premium. Only available in a limited number of stores. The styles look great.

As always, check the labels for country of origin information.  Remember that the the vast majority of goods for sale in Marks and Spencer are foreign made, so you will need to be very careful to choose only made in Britain items.

Besides this new Best of British collection there are a few other made in the UK items for sale in Marks and Spencer, but these days they are few and far between. That said Marks and Spencer food halls still have lots of great British made goods to choose from.

Good for M&S that they are selling this Best of British collection and about time too. An interesting move from a company that is almost single-handedly responsible for the decline in British clothes manufacturing.

A label inside one of my old jackets saying St Michael Made in the UK.  Until 1999 pretty much everything in M&S was UK made; now, excepting foods, pretty much everything in M&S is foreign made.
