Jonathan Tarlton-Weatherall from Cookson and Clegg popped in for a chat about making jeans in the UK. While he puffed on his pipe (Hes on the bottom right of the picture) and bought me up to date on the fantastic works Cookson and Clegg are doing with outerwear I got busy doing a bit of shoulder touching of the two young men he bought with him. They were not amused!
Cookson and Clegg are an ages old British manufacturer with one hell of a reputation for fantastic quality production. They used to produce only for the armed services but opened up their production to private business a few years ago. Although the’re not your standard jeans maker I could tell by the quality of the samples that Jonathan had bought with him that for heavy fabrics they must be the top uk maker. Its going to be very interesting working with them.
