Lyle & Scott: The Freshest Jackets, Sweats, Polo Shirts & Knitwear from this Iconic Scottish Brand
Lyle & Scott was founded in 1874 and since has grown to become one of Europe's biggest fashion labels. They offer on-trend, quality clothing at brilliantly affordable prices. William Lyle and Walter Scott saw a demand for high quality knitted underwear in Victorian Britain and decided to do something about it. The company was formed in a small factory in Hawick, a town nestled in the Scottish Borders that remains Lyle & Scott’s home to this day. Making it one of Europe’s most recognisable heritage brands.
The brand of choice for the fashion-conscious youth of today with an eye for style, Lyle & Scott live and breathe the current fashion trends and offer the complete collection of quality trainers, jackets, shirts, tops and knitwear; the perfect mix of statement must-have pieces and basic wardrobe essentials. They have even collaborated with world famous high-end fashion houses on luxury womenswear collections. The most popular being in 1954 a cashmere collection was created with Christian Dior.
Lyle & Scott launched its first range of golf wear in the 1960s and soon became known as ‘The Original Golf Brand’. This launch inspired the creation of the iconic ‘Golden Eagle’ logo, as it was based on the eagle of Gleneagles’ world famous golf courses.
Since its inception several celebrities have proudly sported the brand including; actors Emma Watson, Idris Elba and Tom Hardy, musicians such and Harry Styles and Liam Payne, and television presenter Holly Willoughby. Their involvement has been key in building the profile of the fashion brand.
