London

– Why are you visiting London?

– I want to see one of the oldest European cities : feel the culture, explore British heritage, get to know more about the history and society, go to galleries, meet people behind the great inventions

– Sure, hurry up, because everything will vanish soon and will remain in the pictures only.

Wasting Time for Nothing?

Only the time spent on mastering a skill is not wasted. A person is able to pass on his knowledge to others and positively contribute to a development of the society.

I wonder why?

I wonder why?

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

Friday 13th

Friday 13th

Dear Jonathan,

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.

British Craftsmanship

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 Dandy Lab -Movement to Save British Craftsmanship & Cult of Gentleman

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!
