This article on British made clothes is very comprehensive – please give it a few seconds to load. You may wish to use ‘find on page’ to help you look for something in particular.

I sense a revival of British clothes manufacturing. Much has gone, but there is still a fantastic choice of British made clothes out there, whether you want to spend a lot or not very much money.

Here you can find links and information, in no particular order, about British made clothes, for men, women and children. This article is ongoing and I will add to it when I discover more British clothes manufacturers and suppliers. Only companies that actually make or supply clothes made in the UK will be featured here, not simply companies that used to make clothes in the UK or are just selling clothes in the UK. The products I list here are genuinely made in the UK, not simply labelled to imply British heritage or manufacture.

Film and Television

Not strictly manufactured in Britain, but made in Britain; the UK makes some of the best TV and films (movies) in the world.  A recent good example of great British TV is the BBC drama Parade’s End starring Benedict Cumberbatch.  In the dying days of the Edwardian Empire, Christopher Tietjens enters into a destructive marriage with the beautiful but cruel socialite Sylvia.  Based in the novels of Ford Madox Ford.

In films, a good example of great British film making (well perhaps strictly speaking Anglo-American-Japanese film making) is the Bond films (based in the character created by Ian Fleming and starring Daniel Craig as the most recent incarnation of James Bond), the latest of which is Skyfall which is premiered in London tomorrow.

MADE IN BRITAIN

Why aren’t more things made in Britain?

In this article in the Telegraph I read that:

“The EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, recently reported that 40pc of companies currently manufacturing abroad are looking to bring production back home.

We need to foster this interest in a resurgence of manufacturing in the UK: for the economy, for job creation and for national pride.”

Interesting.  Here’s a link to the article.  That is where the photo above is from too. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-business/9597671/Why-arent-more-things-made-in-Britain.html
