Henri Lloyd have been making genuine sailing gear for many years - indeed, the intrepid Sir Francis Chichester chose to wear their gear during his pioneering voyage around the world in 1966. Around 20 years later though, dapper Milanese youths reinterpreted some of the look and transplanted it into a rather stylish context. The Consort would form part of a Euro-preppy ensemble, American translated into Italian with 501's, Best Company sweatshirts and Timberland Deck shoes.
We've long been admirers of Henri Lloyd and their snazzy style, especially the sailing jackets. One of us even sold the original versions not far from our Thomas Street HQ many moons ago when Acid House was the driving force. That link was what inspired us to arrange an exclusive archeological dig into the archives of Henri Lloyd and lucky for us, the original jackets were there, good as new. We've tweaked the sizing to make a more modern fitting garment and made some minor cosmetic changes for the better, but beyond that, they remain faithful to the originals. When we say these Henri Lloyd garments need to be seen to be believed we really, really mean it.
