The 3rd of October marks the second annual Buy British Day, a day dedicated to shining the spotlight onto British brands and manufacturers. Encouraging UK shoppers to look closer to home when updating their wardrobe, Buy British Day celebrates all things home grown. Britain is home to a wealth of unique brands, both big and small, so we wanted to take the chance to showcase some of our favourites.
PRIVATE WHITE V.C.
New to Coggles this has quickly become one of our firm favourites. With military inspired design, high quality British fabrics and factory a stone’s throw away from Manchester city centre, Private White VC is British through and through. Shop the Private White V.C. collection at Coggles here.
PREEN BY THORNTON BREGAZZI
Founded in 1996 by Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi creates rock ‘n roll-inspired collections infused with British eccentricity season after season.
