3 Cool British Brands To Know


This column is where we give you a head start on your mates in the race to look good each season. With a tip of the hat to the weekend’s historic events, this time we’ve got three British brands that can help you feel like a king…

This Edinburgh menswear brand is all about understated cool. Ex-Nigel Cabourn designer Kestin Hare taps into Scotland’s rich design history and the colours of its sublime landscapes to create regular collections of modern classics. Kestin being a Scottish label, cold-weather gear is a strong suit – but don’t sleep on the latest spring/summer offering. Pieces like carpenter pants in a rare waffle cord will earn subtle nods of approval from other men in the know.

This young brand blends traditional British craftsmanship with daring design to produce footwear of enduring quality. Handmade in England using responsibly sourced materials, Duke + Dexter’s shoes embody the brand’s ‘buy once and buy right’ mantra. Its latest collection draws inspiration from Morocco to introduce new silhouettes alongside updated classics.

You Must Create (YMC) has been in the business of crafting directional yet wearable pieces since the mid-90s. Co-founder Fraser Moss learnt at the feet of Vivienne Westwood and has now perfected a trademark style of his own: cool, elevated basics with a subtle counter-cultural edge. Season after season, the brand delivers everything you need for seriously laid-back weekends.
