Leicestershire has long been the home of great British knitwear manufacturing, and that's a tradition that we’re proud to continue with our own range of merino wool pieces.
Every piece of R/E knitwear, from our range of cardigans to the collection of chunky knit winter scarves, is made by skilled British craftspeople at a factory just up the road from Realm & Empire HQ. As well as guaranteeing a high standard of quality this also gives us a sense of locality - something that’s rare in the UK fashion industry.
Available in both classic off-white and a stylish navy (re-supply coming soon), the R/E Harris Commando Roll Neck is a definitive take on the traditional naval roll neck design. Designed for comfort, warmth and fit, this is a key R/E piece that looks fantastic coupled with one of our Wool Peacoats.
For equally authentic British style on slightly warmer days you may prefer the Light Military Crew Jumper. Available in both Petrol and Olive colourways these fitted jumpers are inspired by Second World War officer uniforms, with the addition of self-coloured patches on the shoulders and breast pocket contributing to a stunningly refined look.
There’s a reason that beanies have remained popular for decades – they’re both stylish to look at and effective at keeping your melon warm over the colder winter months. R/E’s Commando Beanies come in grey, green, black, white and navy blue, giving you the choice of complementary accessory no matter what look you’re wearing.
These are the key made in Britain knitwear pieces we produce but this is by no means the complete collection. Browse the shop, select a piece and get your style sorted for Autumn/Winter - before the temperature really starts to drop...
