This is a nice little video by Private White VC, the superb British brand and manufacturer. It’s heavy on atmosphere rather than craft details, but there’s a lot in there readers will identify with.

It also reminds me how starkly Private White stand out in the British manufacturing landscape. We have great shoemakers in Northampton, great tailors in London, and strong if scattered leather-goods industry. But we’ve lost 99% of straightforward garment manufacturing in the UK, and Private White is one factory adapting and surviving by bringing its ethos to design and branding as well as making. 

They also make great products – as readers may remember, I’m a particular fan of their casual jackets, and the new Spring/Summer collection expands that idea for lighter weight pieces.
