Best of Britannia / Buy British Day

The second ever Buy British Day is upon us and it's time for us to start celebrating all things British!

On the 3rd October in London and Preston, spearheaded by Best of Britannia, businesses are gathering in order to champion their British product and continue the process of manufacturing in Britain.

Part of the unique appeal of Realm & Empire is the charming patriotism that resides at the very heart of the brand. Our Made in England collection is designed in Nottingham and knitted in Leicester, and pays tribute to the most admirable aspects of Britishness.

All of our garments have their own authentic narrative and appeal, with influences derived from the Imperial War Museum's military archive. Garments, prints, insignia... We are inspired by it all. 

Made in Britain | Realm & Empire

For example our Harris Commando Roll Neck took inspiration from part of the essential kit issued to the Royal Navy during WW2. Traditional in design and perfect for keeping out the chill...

Hosted last year by Wayne Hemmingway MBE and supported by some of Britain's top manufacturers, including Brompton Bicycles, Mathmos Lighting and Walsh Footwear, this year is bound to be a success.

One of our favourites exhibited last year - Cheaney Shoes. Made in England since 1886 and manufactured in a local Northamptonshire factory, keep an eye out for this heritage brand!

We are offering you the chance to celebrate Buy British Day in style with a 25% discount on our Made in England knitwear collection, all knitted right here in Leicester, England.
