Recently spotted, Cro'Jack - a label which is a bit of a new one on me.
Over the last few years we have seen a small influx of new British labels introduce themselves, steeped in our own heritage and tradition, Albam, Heritage Research, Universal Works, Percival, North Sea Clothing and Private White V.C. all spring to mind, which can be no bad thing really, Cro'Jack seem to follow that trend, a brand all cut and sewn in England at their own factory and working alongside many old British Mills and using fabrics that have provenance, such as British Millerain, Ventile and Harris Tweed. The folk behind Cro'Jack - crossjack pronounced Cro-Jack, have an established background in menswear, they have created their own label to produce a pure British collection, paying homage to our universal friends in a quirky British way.
Currently creating great garments, some laundered to give a vintage comfy handle, very wearable garments that will become 'an old friend' Inspired by military and functionality and a desire to create garments using British know how and craftsmanship. I've yet to see this in the flesh but it's certainly one to look out for, I especially like the look of the Li waxed jacket up top, pics shamelessly borrowed from Kiosk78.
