Manufacturing 100% British clothing for 220 years..
J G GLOVER & CO..
The manufacturing company J.G.GLOVER & CO has been lovingly passed down through eight generations of the Glover family meaning that for over 220 years we have been crafting the highest quality knitwear and coats. We like to think that this means we know what we're doing.
Peregrine Clothing was established as a brand in 1956 as a separate entity from the manufacturing business. It is still very much a family brand, Tom Glover, current managing director and designer took over the company in 2003 looking to revitalize the brand during what were challenging times for British clothing manufacturers.
Made in England..
Every step from the very first design to the finishing stitch has been executed here in the UK and we are extremely proud of this. We can control everything about the garment production from start to finish and we have a close working relationship with the team at our Manchester based factory. We offer something a bit different, something special and we want our customers to be excited about where their clothing comes from.
"90% of clothing that we buy in Britain is outsourced when it comes to production in order to cut costs as much as possible but this often means sacrifices in the brands sustainability as well as in the quality of the garment produced.."
Tradition with a twist..
We always start the design process with a few core themes in mind; Functionality, adaptability and a play on tradition. It is important that our clothes span seasons and that you are investing in a wardrobe staple that you will love for years to come so highest quality materials are essential. Our designs stand up to the elements but transition perfectly to suit an urban environment making them adaptable for both city living and country breaks.
When you've been around as long as we have, you get a clear sense of what determines a piece of clothing a 'classic', We take these classics and play with the structure, colourways and detail to make them fresh and contemporary.
Bristol and us..
Our knitwear factory is situated in Manchester but our offices and headquarters have resided in Bristol for 8 years. The team have settled into a new office and showroom in Montpelier, a vibrant and bustling area just North of Bristol city-center which is well worth a visit if you stop by, have a coffee and peruse the latest range.
