Welcome to the latest episode of our Podcast series "In Conversation" where we bring you inspiring stories, retail insights and conversation from fashion's most influential business leaders.
The story of British knitwear brand Peregrine dates back to 1796 and, eight generations down the line, these days it’s run by Tom Glover, who joined the business after graduating in design back in 2003. He set about re-establishing the Peregrine brand with clean, contemporary designs - adding shirts, outerwear and accessories, impressively all made in England as the company always has.
Today Peregrine is stocked in over 80 different retailers across the UK, as well as in shops in Germany, Iceland, Canada and the USA.
In April this year, the brand opened its first ever store at 78 Regent Street, and added a pop-up shop-in-shop in Selfridges at the end of October, provisionally set to run for nine months, forming part of the iconic retailer’s Project Earth strategy.
Based in Bristol and with their own factory in Manchester, Peregrine controls every element of garment production from start to finish ensuring both full traceability and quality assurance.
Alongside its retail growth and developments, the brand is marking its considerable 225-year anniversary milestone with new products and collaborations, including with fellow British manufacturers Goral Shoes and Yarmouth Oilskins. Tom Glover tells us all about it.
