Best of British

Best of British

Here at Woodcock & Cavendish we've always been great advocates for sourcing British made goods and continue to support our wonderful designers and manufacturing industry within the UK. The companies we choose are British through and through, from the design through to the finished products.

Over the past year we have found that people have now started to appreciate the value of shopping locally and especially when the emphasis is on Made in Britain.

So with this in mind here are a few of our personal favourite iconic British brands that we love, support and sell.

Peregrine Clothing 

Peregrine Clothing really are the ultimate British heritage clothing company dating back to 1796 when J G Glover & Co Ltd was first established eight generations ago. This is British manufacturing at its very best.

We've stocked Peregrine for several seasons now and when their deliveries arrive in the shop our excitement levels go through the roof.  A clothing collection for both men and women of any age mixing British styling with fresh, exciting designs with that vintage edge that we all love.     

We're particularly loving our new men's collection.

For the men in our lives we love the cool Retro look that Peregrine offers.  Knitted tees and polos shirts made with the softest cotton in fresh striking retro colours. Each tee is cut and sewn into shape, so every garment has no unwanted seams.

Or their fabulous new season stylish Moss Knit Jumper in navy. An easy to wear jumper and with a quarter zip ideal for him to layer and style.  

For the outdoors a waxed Bexley Jacket makes a fabulous versatile jacket for all weathers and occasions, as seen worn by Jimmy Doherty of Jimmy's Farm fame.

The range also includes classic ski jumpers, British Wool jumpers, checked shirts and beanie hats.  Great gifts for the man that has everything!

Ladies fashion is exciting too with their lovely collection of jumpers and waterproof jackets. The Cable knit jumpers are a classic design with an edge as the cable is knitted horizontally, giving a new twist on the traditional cable sweater.  

We also love wearing their Carlyle waterproof jacket whilst walking our dogs, perfect for the ever changing Gloucestershire weather!  

And if this is not enough to entice you to take a look at new season Peregrine then surely the celebrities who are seen wearing it will. Recent famous names include actor Russel Tovey who has been spotted wearing new season Knitted Tee, Dermot O'Leary, who is a big fan, was spotted in a Beauford Crew Neck Jumper on This Morning and our personal favourite Tom Hardy is often seen in a Peregrine Waffle Knit cardigan or a Preston Shirt. Who can resist a Hardy in a cardy!

Please take a look at the Peregrine collection.

Celtic & Co

We are so excited to announce that we now stock ladies wear from Celtic & Co with a nod to the Cornish coast. Casual, timeless pieces with an outdoorsy feel, perfect for this summer's staycation.

This season we're in love with their soft gentle shades of peony pink, sage green and Icelandic blue in Fine Knit Merino jumpers perfect for layering over jeans and cropped trousers. For the lovers of the outdoors their linen and cotton sweatshirts are perfect for that comfy, casual look.  We adore Celtic's casual Linen and Cotton Tie Shirts in beautiful cornflower blue a summer must, comfortable yet stylish nipped at the waist over trousers and jeans.

For staycation's and cooler summer evenings by the sea there's the Luxe V Neck Jumper in vibrant indigo blue made from soft Merino wool.  A beautiful new season chunky jumper.

Oh and then there is Celtic's beautifully Eco Cotton Tonal Mineral Grey jumper in the softest, finest organic cotton. Perfect teamed with skinny white jeans for a stylish, luxurious look.  

We love that their collections are all designed in the UK using the best natural materials. 

Plus famous Celtic fans include the Duchess of Cambridge, Dame Judi Dench and the cast of Game of Thrones.
