LYLE & SCOTT VINTAGE
UNITED KINGDOM / SINCE 1874
Classic British menswear, inspired by a rich heritage. The story of Lyle & Scott, from 19th century cottage industry in the Scottish Borders to 21st century global fashion brand provides a fascinating insight into the modern history of British textile design. All the ingredients are there: 140 years of manufacturing pedigree, endless innovation and reinvention, premium fashion status thanks to collaborations with everyone from Christian Dior to Bergdorf Goodman, serious sportswear credentials backed by a close association with professional golf since the 1960s, and the tacit approval of British youth subcultures from mods and ‘casuals’ to indie bands of today.
The success of the brand today owes everything to that rich heritage. Equally, that rich heritage informs every garment. Design driven by provenance.
