Handknitted Chunky Pure Wool Socks!
I will stuff them with Candy this Christmas and hand on the fireplace
If one would pay $40 for a barber to cut hair why not pay a craftsman $50 to hand-knit a hat? Hat would last you years

I do not understand most of the people, I guess fast fashion has ruined the majority’s understanding about quality & long-lasting products.
1. I tend to visit charity shops & avoid high street shops.
Reason why? I believe in good fabric and quality. I would rather wear the same outfit for a couple of years not polluting & creating fashion waste every season
2. I see clothing as investment & not something that you will through away after 3 month of wearing. Actually, buying fashion products one would spend more than getting a good quality piece. Because fashion does not last long.

FOXHUNT works together with British craftsmen to create the top quality & unique garments.
Supporting British Heritage & Craftsmanship!
hope you are well!
Today is Friday 13th, not too long left till Christmas.
I am writing to introduce you to my believes & activities.
I am an activist supporting British craftsmanship and heritage.
I strongly believe that UK should invest more money & time in developing manufacturing resources in the country and not letting the heritage to die.
We should be proud of craftsmen in the country and give them opportunity to work.
I have developed a brand: FOXHUNT Menswear, to unite & give a chance for the talented knitters to work and express their abilities.
FOXHUNT Menswear- luxury bespoke & RTW knitwear exclusively
for men. Hand knitted in Britain using traditional knitting techniques & local materials. FOXHUNT garments are designed to last.
Craftsmanship is art shaping our culture, please do not let it vanish.
Thanks for reading!
If you have any comments I would love to hear from you.
Founder & Director
Do you still remember the times when one used to have a few sets of clothing carefully tailored & maintained that would last for decades?
Clothing used to be your second skin clearly differentiating you from the others.
Now I feel that fashion made us all to loose our skins and put similar uniforms instead. Why do we listen? Why do we all want to be the same?
Consumerism made us to forget about the craftsmanship and formed rather a negative attitude towards it: ‘ this is just what my grandpa would care about’.
I believe that if we keep continuing to be ignorant to the fact that there is less and less skillful craftsmen left we will soon see their work in the museum behind the glass.
Lets bring it back! Lets make people to admire the craftsmanship again!
I simply do not want to see the British heritage vanishing.
The Fact: There are only 150 British Men Lifestyle Brands left that are still producing goods in the UK. These brands represent heritage & craftsmanship of the whole country. Sadly, but this number is becoming smaller due to the constant pressure from the high street shops.
There is the whole new generation of people who have never seen a good quality piece of clothing or could not tell the difference between the high street and exclusively crafted products.
It is painful to see how everything, what the UK was famous for, is now being lost.
We want to educate people about the craftsmanship & show that it is not all about the fashion. What matter is the style & individuality!
