A Jump(er) in Time

Peregrine Clothing

The Glover family first came to Leicester in the 18th century with a work force of 30 or so hand-frame knitters under the direction of Mr Samuel Glover who managed the company from 1860 until the turn of the century when his grandson took over and then his son after that. By the 1920's the company employed over 300 people in what were considered the 'hay-days' of British manufacture where nothing in the world could beat a proper British wooly.

The company has changed hands through 8 generations of the Glover family and had it's fair share of tumultuous ups and downs as a result of the industrial revolution; Thus making the fragments of company literature that remain from previous periods ever more valuable and interesting to revisit

Below is a company history pamphlet from the 1980s with images of the old family factory in Leicester as well as the popular garments we were producing at the time, some which probably should never resurface (as is the nature of fashion) and some which could fit into any 21st century wardrobe in that timeless way a classically retro piece can.

As the years pass we switch to new design software's and we update the machinery to make sure we are current and maintaining our reputation for quality craftsmanship, we now construct our 12 Gauge merino lightweights on seamless machines which can create a whole garment with virtually no seams.

So some things have changed, and we are a heritage brand that moves with the times, but we also take immense pride in the fact that the design process, the stages of production and the final personal touch of hand linked-seams for example has all remained pretty much the same. Meaning you can still take pride in owning a British knit that was made by people who truly understand their trade and their craft and one that hasn't flown round the world before arriving on the shop floors.

Enjoy a little look through our archives below, we certainly do!

So it seemed that Spring had a few set-backs in the form of a particularly frosty end to March but we are here to lift spirits with our favorite cross-season jacket; The Pembroke - now available in Cumin Spice!

The Pembroke has a subtly equestrian shape with a flared skirt, contrast lapels of Harris Tweed and an asymmetric statement zip. A truly unique garment that has been a firm best-seller due to its one-of-a-kind structure and character. Made from British canvas cotton, Pembroke is machine washable and showerproof, so pretty suitable for Aprils rainy spells and the bold, warm hue is guaranteed to conjure smiles.

 

 

5 Minutes with Regent Tailoring

The above images were shot in Salisbury and feature Jason (owner of Regent Tailoring) and close friend Nigel Clifford Charles Card. - Nigel wears the Bexley in Gunmetal

Regent was founded in 2006 as a three floor, seven room emporium for the modern gentleman harboring a unique and characterful taste. The shop was founded by Jason Regent who takes great inspiration from his Grandfather Frank who was butler to Ian Fleming (Author of the James Bond novel's). Jason also has a vast wealth of experience in the tailoring industry which he applies every day to his line of work.

Regent stock a select range of brands with the concept of British Manufacturing at their core. Catering for every need from stylish shoots to contemporary casual-wear and all the fun and exciting bits and pieces you may need in between.  

Read our 5 minute chat with Jason below..

Hi Jason, to begin with, perhaps you could you explain how the Regent tailoring first originated and how the launch of the concept came about?

The Regent story started in the most unlikely of places: a garage unit on an industrial estate in Salisbury, Wiltshire. But in just under five years, the business relocated twice and is now run from a three-storey building near the gates of Salisbury’s thirteenth-century cathedral. This journey I think really reflects the company's commercial success and shows that the winning formula is a product of the different personalities who work at Regent.


Are there further plans for expansion?

Yes absolutely, do even more to spread the word about Regent!

What is the core profile of the 'Regent' customer? 

We cater for everyone from a 16year old to 99 year old so the net falls very wide when it comes to our core customer base. Essentially we aim to have something for everyone whether someone is coming in for a bespoke suit fitting or just to browse for gifts.

What has been your favorite piece from past Peregrine collections?

For us it is always the knitwear and of course the Bexley jacket!

What do you look forward to most about the new year ahead? 

We look forward to our Winter Delivery’s from you (Peregrine). And to transitioning onto a new website as with alot of independent retailers, e-com has become a very important aspect of our buisness

In the midst of a flurry of sample-sending, travelling and trade shows we are taking a minute to look back on the incredible day that was our A/W 18 lookbook shoot.

The following images are stills taken from a short film by Seb Drewitt which we will be releasing later in the year in anticipation of the new collection. Enjoy the energy, the glimpses of the new garments and the fact that we were shooting in some winter sun for the first time maybe ever!
