Henri Lloyd is a well known, popular designer menswear brand that originally begun by selling clothing designed for yachting, sailing and golf but has evolved to be one of the leaders in the UK clothing market by expanding their range to include wearable street wear styles, that still borrow from its original designs. They also continue to design bespoke clothing for these sports using the latest technology and materials to provide clothing which is lightweight and offers protection from the elements, whilst also keeping up with the latest trends and fashions.

It’s no wonder then that Henri Lloyd clothing is so popular with celebrities and sports personalities. The brand is seen all over sailing and yachting events and is a major sponsor for a number of competitions. It’s a brand that is prestigious and respected for being a leader in producing this kind of sportswear but since the brand’s formation in the 1960s it has developed to be an everyman’s brand that can be seen worn all over the UK high street. The looks are smart but relaxed and feature plenty of wardrobe staples that will be relevant for more than just a season. Staple items like jackets and trousers will be a key part of your wardrobe for many years and are worth the investment.

Preppy casual is a key look for 2012 and you’ll find many items in our Henri Lloyd clothing range that will really fit the trend. If it’s cool guy on campus you’re looking for, take a look at the Henri Lloyd chinos and knitted cardigans in our collection that will be sure to impress. The clothing is made from high quality fabrics and designed to last, perfect to wear no matter the weather thanks to their innovative way of producing clothing that will protect from the wind and rain. Whilst we’d like to believe that this will be a BBQ summer (aren’t we promised this every year?), the pessimist in us will still be investing in one of the Henri Lloyd lightweight windbreakers, available in a range of attractive colours, in the event that this summer proves to be a wash out. We’ll still keep our fingers crossed and our sunglasses on standby though, just in case.

The ‘marine’ look has been making appearances on the catwalk for the last few seasons and it looks like it’s going to be sticking around for the long term. Henri Lloyd clothes have been a major influence in this look and whilst other brands have taken inspiration from the brands original concept, we say, there’s nothing better than the real thing, and many would agree with us. Key items like Henri Lloyd jumpers and jackets feature high quality designs that have a strong heritage and a reputation for being long lasting as well as getting better with age.

For the perfect casual look this spring/summer, invest in a pair of Henri Lloyd clothing with a stripe knitted jumper for cool daytime style and finish off with a pair of deck shoes to complete the look. All you need now is the sea breeze and beer, which sadly we can’t provide for you!
