Meet The Manufacturer 2015 – Nigel Cabourn
Words by Bossman75
Today and tomorrow the London Tobacco Docks hosts “Meet the Manufacturer 2015″, a conference showcasing over 100 of the best British clothing manufacturers, textile mills, leathergoods makers and suppliers to the UK apparel and textile industry. Amongst the speakers is cult British designer Nigel Cabourn. This only came to light having seen Nigel’s Instagram post yesterday with the following words and picture. I felt it too good not to share. Tickets are still available at this very late stage HERE but you have less than an hour to hear ‘An institution in British menswear’ by Nigel.
“Tomorrow, I am doing a talk at the Tobacco Dock in London, about British Manufacturing and all clothing made in Britain. There is an exhibition there of over 100 UK manufactures / producers, all making in Great Britain. Also there are some guest speakers taking through the day about this. I will be doing a talk at 11.10am. Would to be great to meet anyone who is interested in UK manufacturer or in our Authentic clothing line which is all made in England. In the picture I am wearing all my British product, a Pom Pom hat 100% wool, made in Scotland, Harris Tweed grey mallory jacket, with ventile patches, (all British materials) and my Scottish Lambswool crew neck sweater.”
