Henri Lloyd is in my opinion the best boating clothing around !! I have been professional boat crew for the last 20 years mainly as a stewardess and cook and have found their clothing to be smart and comfotable and extremly hard wearing Yes it is expensive but I do cheat and when I am in the U.K I go to their outlet store in Street in Somerset where the happy helpful staff now know me by name.
´This is what I have at the moment .2 pairs stone ladies trousers ,1 pair dark blue ladies trousers A pair of the most comfortable suede sailing half wellies in pale blue suede!! They certainly get some comments on the dock and a pair of blue deck shoes and a day carry on bag. Told you I liked their stuff!!
Next season the stone trousers will get made into shorts and I will buy some new. Even my dad who is 87 has a Henri LLoyd jacket!
If you buy Henri Lloyd you buy quality and durablity and the cachet of a famous sailing clothing brand.
Henri Lloyd was initially associated with sailing gear, and to a certain extent a lot of the clothes that Lloyd designs are still geared towards life on the ocean wave. I bought an Henri Lloyd sailing jacket two years ago and it still looks great and I have got a lot of wear out of it. The stitching and embroidery is still in top condition and other than the occasional soak in the bath tub with a mild detergent, I have had no need to clean it at all. Having purchased it in Duty Free at Heathrow it set me back 115 pounds which was a big reduction on the normal price and it is great for walking, harsh winters in Scotland and Austria and for sailing in. I bought an Henri Lloyd jumper in USC in January reduced from 90 pounds to 75 pounds, and whilst it is a heck of a lot to pay for a jumper, it is certainly worth it. The jumper in pure wool, made in Scotland and other than the fact that it has to be handwashed and left flat to dry (takes a day or so) and is thus time consuming to look after, it looks great, and is a very warm jumper. I have had very good wear from Henri Lloyd shirts, which are good smart casual shirts and are logoless unlike certain manufacturers... I also bought an Henri Lloyd baseball cap for 20 quid which is a mite pricey, but it sets you apart from the Polo Baseball cap crowd. The products are expensive, although you can at least be guaranteed that they have been well made, not in sweatshops unlike some Nike, Ralph Lauren and GAP. His bags and accessories are also great if you want to be just that little bit more individual than the run of the mill brands.
