Proudly British

The finest cloths and products, woven and made in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
The best of British.

We are delighted to present a selection of the finest British made cloths and products, many of our own exclusive design, made for us by the finest mills
and artisans. As well as the striking blazer you see here, the most exciting news is the introduction of our own style of raincoat, made in the advanced Ventile fabric, and our Raglan Tweed Overcoat, comfort and practicality combined with excellence of make. We have also introduced a range of luggage that can be covered in a tweed of your choosing, perhaps to match your overcoat; we have selected one of our own exclusive tweeds for this first edition, and our new caps in matching house tweed are a must for chilly days.

“We are proud to champion British cloths  and manufacturing; during a period of global renaissance, British manufacturing and values endure. The reaffirmation of our ‘Special Relationship’ with America is another opportunity to show what both our countries do best and we are delighted to continue the wonderful relationships we have formed.”

Single Breasted Navy
Shawl Collar Blazer

We are delighted to introduce this wonderful Navy Basketweave
in Super 140s worsted mixed with Cashmere. This beautiful cloth is of exceptional luxury and a joy to wear and handle and is woven for us in Scotland by one of the oldest weaving houses, whose history goes
back to 1778. We selected this exceptional cloth as it is unique and with the special shawl collar, it makes for a striking blazer. Single-breasted button one, button two cuff, shawl collar, two horizontal jetted pockets and two vents, available in just this one colour Super 140s worsted mixed with cashmere.

Ventile Raincoats

Our latest introduction is a raincoat, but not just any raincoat; it is one that has a history that goes back to pre-war times. In the 1930s as Britain faced the prospect of war, a Government aware of potential shortages looked for an alternative to flax to make fire hoses and water buckets; they wanted a cotton fabric weave that would keep water in, but of course made one that would also keep water out! This research developed a more urgent need as the Russian Convoys crossing the Arctic Ocean came under attack from submarines. RAF cover was impossible, so catapult propelled Hurricane fighters were mounted on ships. With no way to land back on the ship, pilots were required to ditch in the ocean and await rescue. The temperature of the water meant that life expectancy was counted in minutes. Most died from exposure. The water resistant Ventile® fabric, developed by scientists at the Shirley Institute in Manchester, was a revolution that protected the pilots from immediate soaking and extended life expectancy to 20 minutes. The fabric became a staple supply for the RAF and is still used in RAF and NATO flight suits today.

One of the problems with raincoats today is the lack of style. Richard has applied his own unique styling to these raincoats; you will clearly see our distinctive cut, high in the armhole, waisted and with a certain flair. Our raincoats are light weight and perfect for wearing over a suit on rainy days, offering protection and comfort. You will be seeing more of them over the coming months, but we will be noting interest from customers who might like to reserve one ahead of the spring showers. Our model features a fly front with vertical welted pockets, wrist wraps and a tab and button on the collar, chain hanger, two vertical inside pockets with zips. Available in navy, antique bronze.

Raglan Overcoat

We are delighted to introduce for winter a very special Raglan overcoat in our exclusive house tweed. Our tweed is woven for us in Islay, Scotland and has become a firm favourite since we introduced it during our anniversary year.
The Raglan overcoat is named after Lord Raglan, the 1st Baron Raglan who is said to have worn a coat with this style of sleeve after the loss of his arm at the Battle of Waterloo. The specially designed sleeve was invented to allow him room to use his sword in battle as it offered greater movement and freedom.
Today this unique overcoat can be worn as a stylish garment for any occasion (or battle) and is proudly made in England, using fine Scottish tweed. The best of British. Single-breasted coat with raglan sleeves, two slant welt pockets and a single vent; shown in our new house tweed – available in any heavy or medium weight tweed, could also be made in navy wool.

Tweed Caps

We have extended our range of flat caps. They are undoubtedly a gentleman’s favourite for any time of year. The four you see here are made in our very successful anniversary house tweeds.

Richard Anderson Luggage

Following the success of our roller bag, briefcase and washbag, we have added to our collection a beautiful hand made travel bag that is made to your order and can be personalised. In this model, we have used our very own Richard Anderson exclusive house cloth to complement the overcoats we have made. The travel bag is hand made for us in England and we feel sure that it will become a favourite travel accessory.
