Blackshore is the definitive hand-made casual clothing collection for discerning folk who love the coastline of the British Isles. Always and only made in Britain, our range includes jackets, shirts and trousers handmade in our own workshop in Southwold, Suffolk, as well as knitwear and other garments from small manufacturers around the British Isles.
Blackshore was born in 2017 down on the harbour of the coastal Suffolk town of Southwold. Part of Southwold's harbour is The Blackshore, where coals were unloaded for centuries, staining the muddy banks black.
We believe our clothing is timeless, not transient, and to illustrate this we offer a lifetime visible repair guarantee, so that you can be confident your favourite pieces will last season after season.
Our social consciousness extends across all aspects of the business: guiding everything from our commitment to supporting the regeneration of British apparel making itself, to our use of fully recyclable, FSC approved packaging that is also made in Britain, and our plan to support coastal charities through which we can give back to the people who live and work on our shores.
Much like the places that inspire them, your Blackshore kit will stand the test of time.
