LYLE & SCOTT
Lyle & Scott was founded in 1874 in the Scottish town of Hawick by William Lyle and Walter Scott with an £800 loan. The brand still draws from a 125-year-old archive that includes designs by Christian Dior and Michael Kors. Its golf range appeared in 1967 and was quickly worn by top golfers. The rejuvenation of the brand can be traced back to 2003 with the launch of the ‘Vintage’ collection with its ‘Golden Eagle’ logo. It was taken up by a host of youth TV presenters and indie bands including the Arctic Monkeys. In 2005 following the success of the Vintage range, Lyle & Scott’s first stand-alone store opened in London’s Covent Garden on King Street.
