No one knows our clothes better than our staff, so we’ve asked them to pick out there favourite pieces from their own personal Lyle & Scott archive. We sat down with Dickie, our Senior Sales Manager, to talk about the story behind his favourite piece of Lyle & Scott: the Lambswool Cardigan from over 10 years ago.
“I’ve loved Lyle & Scott since I was 10 or 11. My Dad used to get the jumpers from the golf clubs he delivered milk to in the early 80s. Many years later, in 2003, I saw the brand at a show in Barcelona. I was a menswear buyer at the time, so I bought a load for my shop. Six months later, my order arrived and this cardigan was in it. I had to get one for myself.”
“This cardigan really emphasises the DNA of the brand, knitwear was and always will be the heart of Lyle & Scott. I used to wear it with skinny jeans and brogues back in the day. Nowadays I bring it out to keep me warm on the cold autumn and winter nights. It’s the perfect piece for that, and it’s lasted me all this time, not a lot of knitwear has that kind of longevity.”
