The British adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes once said, “There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing”. In today’s current climatic confusion, Peregrine is very aware that having appropriate clothing that is also stylish is more essential than ever.
Peregrine was established in 1956, but its roots date back as far as 1796, with Thomas Glover’s hand frame knitting business. Being able to draw upon eight generations of British textiles success, knowledge and relevant design processes, it ensures Peregrine provides the highest standard in quality and comfort.
The label, now synonymous as a British Heritage brand, has an impressive collection of knitwear and jackets – all made in England, and the latter from British Millerain wax cotton, Peregrine’s military inspired jackets are both on trend and ‘appropriate’.
