14 Best British Menswear Brands

London calling? These British clothing brands are for you.

Best British Menswear Brands

Whether it’s dressing Bond, a monarch, or David Beckham, British clothing brands have done more than their fair share of introducing understated masculine style to a global audience. Britain is arguably the birthplace of menswear and the traditions of the past are still heavily ingrained in its menswear scene today.

While you might think the Brits are all about raincoats, stuffy clubrooms, and posh names that remind you of the guys who bullied you at rugby training, there’s much more to see than just the polished suits of Saville Row.

With a plethora of great British clothing brands making cutting edge menswear for the modern man, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of the best British clothing brands for men you need to know about, ranging from the elder statesmen to the young and experimental.

Where British Clothing Brands Make Their Clothes

Whilst British suiting brands pride themselves on being meticulously crafted in only the United Kingdom, British menswear labels are a bit more relaxed when it comes to their clothing’s country of origin. That’s not to say that they’ve off-shored all manufacturing to Asia. Swimwear brands like Orlebar Brown still make their clothing in Portugal and England. Their materials meanwhile are sourced from Italy, France, and Portugal.

For high-end British clothing brands like Belstaff who pride themselves on being British, their entire collection oddly isn’t made there anymore — most of their products today are Italian made. For brands like Barbour, if there’s no country of origin on the label indicating ‘made the U.K’ then you can assume their products were made in European regions like Turkey, Portugal, and Bulgaria. Their biker jackets are still made in the U.K by third parties though.

Even clothing brands that are quintessentially British, like Burberry, have multiple countries of product origin. The iconic label has factories in China, Polan, Romania, India, Spain, Italy, England, and the U.S.

Where To Buy British Clothing Brands From

We don’t live in the stone ages anymore so you’ll be pleased to hear that many British clothing brands have online stores these days. If they don’t provide worldwide shipping you’re likely to find them through local distributors, albeit at slightly higher prices. Beyond that, your best bet is to hit up online stores like ASOS, MR. PORTER, SSENSE, End Clothing, YOOX, and Everlane.
